Alice Coltrane’s 1972 album Lord of Lords is being reissued for the first time, via Superior Viaduct this June.

Watch next: A short documentary about Alice Coltrane’s spiritual journey

Its five tracks were recorded over the course of one week in a Los Angeles studio during July of 1972, following the release of her seminal albums World Galaxy and Journey in Satachidananda featuring Pharaoh Sanders.

Lord of Lords was released by Impulse! in the US and Canada that same year, with a UK release in 1976.

The album’s reissue follows last year’s World Spirituality Classics 1: The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitnanda, our favourite reissue of 2017.
