But it’ll cost you.

A copy of Sun Ra & His Solar Orchestra’s Secrets Of The Sun on extremely rare clear orange vinyl is up for auction on eBay, as The Vinyl Factory points out. It’s currently going for $499.99, but there are still five more days to put money down for it (and no Buy Now option).

The standard black vinyl goes for over a thousand dollars on Discogs, so this could potentially be a steal.


According to VF, this pressing of the 1965 album may be the only orange vinyl copy in existence:”[It’s] just another example of Sun Ra’s extraordinary foresight and industry, pioneering coloured vinyl pressings as they were becoming popular with major labels.”

Roll the dice over at eBay and check out the album’s lead track ‘Friendly Galaxy’ below.
