Acting, Thinking, Feeling: the Stark Reality’s complete works coming Feb. 5th, 2013 as a 6LP/3CD box set.
Earlier this year, we announced we were preparing to present the complete works of psychedelic jazz ensemble Stark Reality’s complete works as a box set. Well, we’re happy to announce that both the 6LP and 3CD versions of this anthology – which we’re calling Acting, Thinking, Feeling – are now in production.
This marks the first time that all of Stark Reality’s music will be available on vinyl and CD. Included will be the entirety of their AJP-issued album The Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop, their out-of-print 1969 (first issued on this label in 2003), the two sides of their Big Yellow 7″ single, the three part song “Acting, Thinking, Feeling” and a series of unreleased tracks discovered by Porter Records’ Luke Mosling – issued here for the first time!
While we have yet to set a street date (we’re hoping for late 2012 or early 2013), our loyal Now-Again Deluxe subscribers will be able to feast their ears on this band’s impossible to categorize, yet undeniable sound – restored and remastered from brand new master tape transfers in two installments, starting on October 30th.
More information, pictures of the box set packaging, and a free download to come.
