Alice Coltrane's devotional music made available on CD

Some of Alice Coltrane's devotional music, recorded after she changed her name to Turiyasangitananda and established her own Ashram, is available again on CD.

The music was originally released on CD and cassette in the 1980s and 1990s, on her own private press imprint the Avatar Book Institute. Available again are: Infinite Chants, Divine Songs, and Radha Botofasina's Songs Of The Eternal Soul, which includes Coltrane on organ. Missing from this batch is Turiya Sings and Glorious Chants, but also available is Coltrane's spiritual memoir Monument Eternal (which has a wonderful font on the cover).
