The recordings were made in Chicago from 1956-1961, but the album was not released on Ra's Saturn label until 1966, long after Sunny and his band had relocated to New York and zoomed light years beyond the forms etched in the grooves of that platter.

Much like Evidence's Fate in a Pleasant Mood/When Sun Comes Out two-fer, We Travel the Spaceways/Bad and Beautiful also features one album from the Chicago period and one from the New York period. The difference is that this New York session (Bad and Beautiful) is probably the first recording made in New York, and the overall sound is more closely tied to the Chicago sound than the later New York material, where rhythm and percussion dominated any melodic elements

We Travel the Spaceways features the Arkestra playing all original Ra compositions, including gems like Velvet and the space ballad Tapestry from an Asteroid, both of which appear in different forms on other Arkestra recordings from the 50s. But the real musical interest of this album comes from the Arkestra’s use of chants, both vocal and musical. Interplanetary Music builds on a jaunty, somewhat deranged rhythm figure made from a staccato bowed bass riff and a squeaky violin melody.

We Travel the Spaceways" is arguably more haunting on "When Sun Comes Out," though this version has a charming duck quack toy. "New Horizons" is a 1956 outtake, found in a slightly superior version on "Sun Song. Sun Ra moved a small core of his big band from Chicago to New York City around mid 1961; but he lost a lot of musicians in the move. Bad and Beautiful", the second half of this twofer, is the second album he recorded there (the first was the studio-engineered, Savoy-distributed "Futuristic Sounds"). It's the first of a long string of home-recorded lo-fi albums, usually engineered by percussionist Tommy Hunter in the "Choreographers' Workshop.
