From the sleeve notes by John Sinclair:

‘After the City Council had forbidden the annual Blues & Jazz Festival to take place in Ann Arbor, the organisers, Rainbow Multi-Media, found an alternative venue in Windsor, Canada. But with Creative Director John Sinclair deported back to Detroit and the audience harassed by the Canadian police, only a small crowd saw and heard Sun Ra perform with his Intergalactic Arkestra, whose “ranks included Ra’s greatest reed section ever, with Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Elo Omoe, Danny Davis, James Jacson and Danny “Pekoe” Thompson, plus Kwame Hadi and Akh Tel Ebah on trumpets.’
