Like many late 70s Saturns, this was released either 1. as whitelabel, 2. as printed (actually xeroxed & hand-glued) Saturn label or 3. as hand-decorated (with colorful markers) whitelabel. Like many 70s/80s Saturns, it never had a cover. Only way to tell is the etching in the runout grooves.

This LP is a so-called PHILADELPHIA-SATURN release - hand-assembled by the band in the house of Sun Ra & The Arkestra in Philadelphia at Morton Street, as opposed to the CHICAGO-SATURNS which have the El Saturn labelprint/logo and were made by Alton Abraham - the man who created the whole concept with Sun Ra back in the early 50s and cared for the business/release side of things.

Prior to the handmade Philadelphia & printed Chicago (El) Saturns and the Thoth Intergalactics (another sub-labelname that appeared on several labelprints) which mainly were made in the 70s and 80s, original SATURN RECORDS LPs from the 50s and 60s have straight 2 color labelprints (no images or logos, just text), don't use the "El" on the labelprint and mostly have printed covers - yet they were often hand-assembled and also made in very small numbers (Sun Ra had special arrangements with the pressing plants to let him sometimes press 70 or 90 LPs only!).

Saturn releases are the most obscure ones in record history, printed in ridiculously small numbers, labels & covers often handmade and sold (at concerts) by the band.
Roughly the Saturn catalogue/discography is divided according to the recording place (where the Arkestra lived and worked) - 1. the Chicago period (50s-1961), 2. the New York period (60s) and 3. the Philadelphia period (70s and 80s).

To create even more confusion, Sun Ra sometimes took an A side of one release and the B side of another and made hybrid albums.

By now the Saturn discography is well documented but it took decades to clear up the more than 70 LPs of Sun Ra on Saturn Records released between 1956 and 1988.



Sleeping Beauty is an album by jazz composer, bandleader and keyboardist Sun Ra and his Intergalactic Myth Science Solar Arkestra recorded in 1979 and originally released on Ra's Saturn label and rereleased on CD on Art Yard in 2008. The band had been working in a more groove-oriented setting off and on for over a year, as evidenced by the albums. This track builds in intensity, but never loses its groove or becomes nearly as raucous as the Arkestra is sometimes known for. Sleeping Beauty is the album centerpiece, taking up all of side two. Ra's beautiful electric piano gets things rolling, and the band falls into a peaceful groove before the vocals enter, led by the wonderful June Tyson. These songs are all built on the simplest of structures, and the playing from everyone is understated and sublime.
