Michael Cosmic s Peace In The World: free improvisation, first touched on by messengers like John Coltrane, Sun Ra and Albert Ayler, gives us an exuberant maelstrom that rejoices in life while it shoves back at complex, unforgiving social-political environments. The '70s Boston underground brought twin brothers Phil Musra and Michael Cosmic together with Turkish-born drummer Hüseyin Ertunç; as a trio, and with other Boston jazzers (John Jamyll Jones of Worlds Experience Orchestra, the 2nd Now), the twins each privately issued an album. Potent mixes of spirituality, expressionist fire and electrified newness.

Some copies have hand-made sleeves with a hand-colored drawing or mimeographed paste-on and stamped titles.
 
Other copies have mimeographed pasted-on artwork with the artist as "Cosmic Paradise" but the LPs, labels, and back cover artwork are exactly the same. There was presumably only one small pressing run of this album, with some given an "art edition" sleeve.

·                               CONDITION:
 
·                               THE RECORD:
 
(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
 
(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT. This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is somewhere between VG++ and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A few light abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow, superficial  and only moderately visually distracting (nothing significant).For the most part, the vinyl looks impeccable without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
 
 
(b)          Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
 
 
·                               THE COVER  (THIS IS THE ORIGINAL HAND-PAINTED COVER)
 
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT EXCELLENT OR VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
 
The following flaws or imperfections
