Earlier this year, Now Again announced they 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 they'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. 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. "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"
