40th volume in the BYG Actuel series; gatefold sleeve, 180 gram vinyl. "'A wild and passionate interstellar mix of free jazz, solo synthesizer and hard rocking cosmic philosophy specifically commissioned by the BYG/Actuel label (and apparently recorded in New York between 1970 and 1971)... this material 'would prove to be one of the cornerstones of the entire Sun Ra/Arkestra career'... with Kwame Hadi, Akh Tal Ebah, Ali Hassan, Charles Stephens, Marshall Allen, Danny Davis, John Gilmore, Danny Ray Thompson, Pat Patrick, James Jacson, Ronnie Boykins, Clifford Jarvis, Lex Humphries, Nimrod Hunt, June Tyson and Art Jenkins. 'The 2 volumes that form the Solar-Myth Approach encapsulate the creative mood and the impassioned message that was going down as the '60s violently burned themselves out... in the cold dawn of the early '70s Sun Ra and his Solar-Myth Arkestra sent out their musical ray of hope to all who chose to hear it... over 20 years later and its effect remains both blinding and illuminating." -- Edwin Pouncey.
