AllMusic Review by

Live from Soundscape is a document of a 1979 show at the Soundscape performance space in New York City. June Tyson starts things out singing Astro Black which quickly heads into freakout territory. After the beautiful flute duet, "Where There Is No Sun," we get a couple nice vocal numbers before the classic 70's instrumental pieces, "D27" and "Watusi." The set closes with the ever popular Space Chants "Space is the Place," "We Travel the Spaceways" and "On Jupiter, the Skies Are Always Blue." Sound quality, while good, is not perfect, gearing the release more towards the serious fan. (Initial pressings included a second bonus disc with a fascinating lecture by Sun Ra entitled "The Possibility of Altered Destiny.")
