Literally stumbled upon this the other day as I was searching for any info concerning a new Ra album.

A digital only release (unfortunately I think we're going to start seeing a lot more of these) capturing demos and b-sides going all the way back to 1994.

You can listen to samples of all tracks here: http://www.amazon.co...&sr=1-1-catcorr

 

Plus, all the info and liner notes for this release are here: http://en.wikipedia...._%28Ra_album%29

 

Some pretty good stuff here mixed in with some rap/rock dreck (tracks 4, 5, & 7).

 

I find Supernova (their last single), Cross of Snow, Baghdad, What I'm About, Seen All Good People (Yes cover), and Who's to Blame to all be enjoyable tracks. Particularly What I'm About.

 

As for a new Ra album, some articles/interviews I've found on the 'net make it sound like that's not going to happen (Sahaj has a solo CD that has been "ready to come out" for over two years now):

BUT, on his own Twitter feed, Sahaj says "new Ra this winter" so I guess we can go with that. Yay! :P

Yeah, had this one for a while. Can't quite remember it too well. If I recall, it was very patchy quality-wise. Some pretty good stuff and some pretty poor older material. Good band, but I could just as easily do without this collection of songs. :)

 

As for the new CD, aren't Ra CDs pretty much just Sahaj solo discs anyway? ;) I wonder if PJ Farley is still in the band or if he decided to join that money train that is the Trixter re-union? :lol: Is that even still in place? I can't keep up, but in all honesty, by the looks of Ra's career, I'm not even sure there'd be more money in Ra than there would be in Trixter. :)
