Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). World Galaxy" is also not as overtly jazz-oriented, so someone looking for the Alice of the "Journey in Satchidananda" album might be disappointed. She'd moved on to deeper, more esoteric territory with this album. The packaging is the typical Japanese mini-sleeve, which is a faithful reproduction of the LP gatefold, and of course that the notes on the inner gatefold almost require a magnifying glass.
Alice Coltrane (née McLeod, August 27, 1937 – January 12, 2007), also known by her adopted Sanskrit name Turiyasangitananda or Turiya Alice Coltrane, was an American jazz musician and composer, and in her later years a swamini. One of the few harpists in the history of jazz, she recorded many albums as a bandleader, beginning in the late 1960s and early 1970s for Impulse! and other major record labels. She was the second wife and the widow of jazz saxophonist and composer John Coltrane.

Be warned that if you don’t like over-present strings, a signature of Alice, you should stay away from the present album, but also a big part of her discography of the 70’s. Actually the gatefold psychedelic album cover (courtesy of Peter Max) with the mention With strings up front. So if you’re in the mood for some far-out intergalactic symphonic travelling, this is the perfect album get started and escape from the solar system’s attraction.
