Volume 5 of "The Lost Reel Collection" features music from two separate tapes. The first tape is from a 1972 short recording at the Seaport Museum in New York City. The acoustics sound like an outdoor concert. The featured track is Discipline 27-ll, which is purely instrumental and may be the earliest recording of this particular version. In 1973, Ra declamations like "Life is Splendid" and "What Planet Is This?" were added on top of the music theme. The second tape is from a 1973 recording in Paris, France. Although the acoustics are quite different, it's a natural segue from the Seaport Museum tape. Opening with the Discipline 27-ll theme and the by-now more familiar declamation there which we title as "The Universe Sent Me" with this release.
