It was easy to get caught up in the spectacle and all the space stuff, but he had some things to say and his compositions were not derivative. John Szwed did a good job of providing analysis and context in his Sun Ra biography.

I can't say that I'm uncomfortable around many people but in my experience, he was bizarro in real life...  Love his show and the Arkestra when he was alive.  I saw the band at the Jazz Festival in Detroit and it bored me to tears....
