The Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop on 3LP + 56-Page Book + Download

Cult Classic Available on Vinyl for the Very First Time Since Its Original 1970 Release!

Complete w/ 56 page Booklet featuring Never Before Seen Photos, Extensive Liner Notes by Egon of Now Again Records, Commentary by AJP Founder Ahmad Jamal, & Interview with the Band's Frontman Monty Stark

The Stark Reality’s legendary album 1970, ...Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop, is a funky, jazzy, fuzz-toned cult classic, consisting of very original interpretations of a children’s album written by Hoagy Carmichael and originally released on Ahmad Jamal’s boutique label, AJP Records.

For years, the album made the rounds in underground hip-hop circles (being sampled along the way by the likes of Large Professor, J-Live, Madlib, and Black Eyed Peas), trading hands for ridiculous sums on the second-hand market - even after it saw a reissue on Now Again as part of the Acting, Thinking, Feeling 6LP boxset which gathered other recently discovered, previously unreleased material from the band’s career.

Now, The Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop is available on vinyl for the very first time since its initial 1970 release in a deluxe 3LP release complete with a 56 page booklet featuring never before seen photos, extensive liner notes by Egon of Now Again Records, commentary by AJP founder Ahmad Jamal, and annotation and an interview with Monty Stark, the band’s frontman.

“The music of the Stark Reality is as playful as it is wild...as fantastic as it is frazzled.” - Rolling Stone

“One of the most prized ‘funk’ artifacts of all time, Stark’s project allies Hendrix-stoned guitars, heavily-fuzzed vibraphone and Bitches Brew rhythms...” - Mojo Magazine
