Starting this page with a bunch of ultra-rare Sun-Ra SATURN label album covers ... mainly because he is still an under-recognized genius with profound influence on much of todays most intense music.(Bjork, Stereolab, MMW, George Clinton, Phish, Blues Traveler, If you know much about the ahead-of-his-time genius Sun-Ra, you'll know that he recorded over 350 albums over his 45-year career as a space-jazz composer, philosopher, futurist, kook, genius and shaman.

He distributed most of his works thru his own incredibly erratic and self-produced 'saturn' label. some records had hand-drawn artwork, some were printed the normal way, some were blank white curiosities with no info, some had stickers or cryptic symbols stamped on the covers, some had track listings, some didnt ... and the discographical info was usually missing. In other words, these albums are some of the most unique & creative in Human history.
For some photos of the current Myth-Science-Arkestra (minus Sun-Ra who passed in 1993) visit my jazz autographs page
Here is a small selection of Saturn-label covers and artwork, plus a few Sun-Ra photos.
