Recorded in 1982, Nuclear War disappeared until 2001 when the Chicago-based Atavistic label made it part of their exceptional "Unheard Music Series. Originally Ra was so sure the funky dance track was a hit, he immediately took it to Columbia Records, where they immediately rejected it. Why he thought a song with the repeating chant "Nuclear War, they're talking about Nuclear War/It's a motherf er, don't you know/if they push that button, your ass gotta go/and whatcha gonna do without your ass" would be a hit is another puzzle in the Sun Ra myth. feat: Sun Ra Arkestra.

This was one of the last extended sessions at Variety, and these recordings were the last studio works released on Sun Ra's own Saturn label (though the label.
His 1982 disc Nuclear War has an easy-groovin' feeling throughout. Ra's big hope for major label recognition ended up released on the underground Y Records instead-but Atavistic just seized the opportunity to get Nuclear War back in print in the digital format. Nuclear War 's acessibility makes it a prime candidate for novices interested in a taste of Sun Ra's vision, and its curious funk-jazz fusion makes it a delicacy for long-time Arkestra followers. Get your ears around this disc. I needed to do my first original album, and his playing was masterful, robust, and beautiful. At the time, I didn't realize how suited we were as a team.

NotesSplit release with the A-sides from the "A Fireside Chat With Lucifer" LP and the "Celestial Love" LP (1984, El Saturn Records).
All tracks are part of the last Variety studio recordings in 1982 and (except A3 and C3) have also been released on the "Nuclear War" album.
Saturn releases are the most obscure ones in record history, printed in ridiculously small numbers, labels and covers often handmade and sold (at concerts) by the band. By now the Saturn discography is well documented but it took decades to clear up the more than 70 LPs of Sun Ra on Saturn Records released between 1956 and 1988.
