Where to alphabetize Sun Ra

It isn't of cosmic importance, but I, too, am interested in how you alphabetize Mr. Ra. Most record stores put Sun Ra under S; so do such reference works as the Goldmine Guide to Collectible Jazz LPs and the new All Music Guide to Jazz. In support of this practice, you might also note that Sunny and Abraham sometimes hyphenated his stage name Sun-Ra in the old days.

On the other hand, I asked Bob Rusch whether Tom Lord was going to put Sunny in the S volume of his discography, or in the R volume, and Rusch said the R volume.
