Un corposo volume con storie, commenti, annotazioni e immagini, un cd audio con la colonna sonora originale, un dvd con il film in doppia versione e una messe di contenuti extra: è la riedizione curata da Harte Recordings di Space is the Place nel quarantesimo anniversario di uno dei capolavori concettuali di Sun Ra.

Enacted last year, Harte Recordings raised funds for the reissue and expansion of the iconic ’70s Sun Ra film Space Is The Place and the importance of this endeavor is finally ready for the world to enjoy. Close to 12 months after the initial news and the label has the 40th anniversary Space Is The Place book, DVD and CD combo package in hand. Included is both the directors cut and original print of the film along with a hardcover book that details the film, includes rare pictures, new interviews and much more. A CD reissue of the original soundtrack is the icing on the cake, completing the aerial view of the project unlike any other release before. Space Is The Place showcased Ra in an entirely different medium then he had ever traveled, spreading the knowledge of the Arkestra through visuals that were connected to many different movements, most of which were his own. The popularity of the film has risen in current times with the reissue work that has been done and this looks like it will be the definitive version of all the releases so far.
