Item Description

Hello and welcome to my latest auction. This list consists entirely of records released by Sun Ra and The Arkestra, and features a great number of original Saturn pressings in impeccable condition. This collection was carefully built over several decades by a devout enthusiast of the music who was in a unique position as the regional distribution manager for an important American record store chain in the 70s and early 80s. The large majority of the LPs were purchased new upon release, many from the band itself, and were promptly stored away in favorable conditions for the better part of thirty years. The cleanliness of most of these LPs cannot be overstated.

All grading is visual and extremely conservative, but it should be noted that many Saturn pressings are not of the highest quality, particularly during the Philadelphia era, and even as new some might play with surface noise or other inconsistencies. In an effort to clarify some of the more confusing release details, I have consulted Campbell and Trent s The Earthly Recordings Of Sun Ra and Geerken s Omniverse reference books and have included all the pertinent deadwax information where available.
My prudent visual grading scale is M- / VG / VG / VG / VG- / G. All of the records have been cleaned with a VPI and will be shipped with security and protection as a priority. Please bid with utmost confidence and feel free to write with any questions. Be advised that I will not end any auction early. Thank you for looking and good luck.
