God Is More Than Love Will Ever Be - Sun Ra - God Is More Than Love Can Ever Be is somewhat of a rarity in the Ra catalog - a cohesive album, with none of the stylistic eclecticism and patchwork personnel characteristically found on Saturn LPs. The album's five tracks were recorded at Variety Studios in one session by a solid jazz trio.
Drummer Samarai Celestial (Eric Walker) recalls this being his first recording date with Ra; bassist Hayes Burnett had been with Ra since 1976 and would remain until 1982 or '83. Celestial continued recording and performing with the Arkestra beyond Ra's '93 departure, being a mainstay in the band under the directorship of Marshall Allen until the drummer's premature death in 1997 at age 43.
Existing copies of the LP are known by several titles, including Blithe Spirit Dance, Days of Happiness, and Trio. Many Sun Ra records were not formally titled. In their haste to prepare limited pressings for sale at concerts, often someone in the band simply wrote the title of the first (or last) track title on the label (if blank) or on the generic sleeve, and that became an alternate album title.
