✨✧ Stark RealityActing Thinking Feeling – The Complete Works 1968 to 1978 (3CD set) ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Amazing sounds from The Stark Reality – an obscure group from the early 70s, but one who've really risen to fame over the years – thanks to their groundbreaking ear for new music, and their freewheeling way with a funky groove! This package brings together all the incredible work recorded by the group in the late 60s and early 70s – a mindblowing assortment of funky and fuzzy jazz tracks – almost all of which are graced by the offbeat vibes work of Monty Stark! Stark often adds a bit of distortion into his instrument, which makes for a very tripped-out approach to vibes – one that blends perfectly with the heavy funk of some of the rhythms, and the freaky guitar lines added to most tracks by a young John Abercrombie. Yet at other times, things are very laidback and chilled-out – balanced beautifully from track to track, in a way that illustrates the larger picture the group were always going for in their music. This massive package brings together everything Stark Reality ever recorded – their famous Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop album, the Acting Thinking Feeling live performance, the Roller Coaster Ride/1969 album, and lots of rare singles too – more than enough music to please any fan of the group, and blow the minds of anyone who's just getting a first taste. Titles include "Roller Coaster Ride", "On Being Black", "New World Generation", "Theme To Say Brother", "Dreams", "Clouds", "All You Need To Make Music", "Rocket Ship", "Cooking", "The Old Prospector", and "Junkman's Song". Great package too – with two LP-styled CD sleeves inside a larger case, plus a big booklet of notes and photos! CD

Heliocentrics13 Degrees Of Reality ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at the core, but it's also filled with loads of amazing sounds – instruments tuned weirdly, played weirdly, and produced weirdly – so that over the heavy drums, there's often lots of freaky, fuzzy bits and tripped-out sounds – in ways that make the record feel like some lost acid trip outtakes from the Westbound studios of the early 70s – or like some obscure funk band that dropped acid at Andy Warhol's loft! The packaging offers up a visual example of what your ears will be going through when you tune into the music – and titles include "Mysterious Ways", "Collateral Damage", "Black Sky", "Calabash", "Path Of The Black Sun", "Mr Owusu I Presume", "Eastern Begena", and loads of cool interlude tracks too.

Connie Price & The KeystonesWildflowers (expanded edition) ... CD
Now Again, 2004. New Copy ... $3.99 15.98
A damn funky little album – and one of the best Stones Throw albums of the past 20 years! Connie Price & The Keystones are a modern group – but one who's steeped in all the older messed-up funky styles of their Stones Throw labelmates – even some of the offbeat psych and rock that the label has reissued from around the globe! There's a wonderfully tripped-out sound to their work – taking the core instrumentation of funky drums, choppy guitars, smoking keyboards, and soulful sax – and pushing it out with a Stark Reality-ish vibe that really makes the group stand out from the rest of the deep funk underground! The album's a brilliant debut that we'll be digging for years – and it also feature appearances by Malcolm Catto, and members of Funk Inc, Poets Of Rhythm, and The LA Carnival! Titles include "Sticks & Stones", "Sucker Punch", "The Buzzard", "Double Dutch", "Wild Flowers", "Tall Dry Grass", "Fuzz & Them", and "The Shadows Of Leaves". Expanded version features 9 more bonus tracks – including "Raga Doll", "Afro Som", "Hurricane Malcolm", "Hello I'm Inside Out", "Sticks Dub", and "Attack Of The Killer Penguins". CD

✨✧ Elysian SpringGlass Flowers (with download) ... LP
Despa/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very cool record – and one with a sound that's as dreamy as the group's name – a laidback mix of vibes, saxes, piano, and percussion – all used in ways that are airy and open, and very different than most other underground jazz of the time! The group hail from New England, and there's maybe some of the inventiveness of Stark Reality in their style – even if the overall sound is much more acoustic, but still has a slightly fuzzy feel via the production! Instrumentation shifts from track to track – and these guys can definitely swing when they want, too – which they do so more as the album moves on – creating these rough-edged groovers that are unlike anything else we can think of. A truly special record – very different than anything else you might own – with titles that include "Drinktink", "Umbrellas In The Sun", "2 & 2", "Glass Flowers", "Blue Sands", "Lotus", and "7th Sea".

Alessandro AlessandroniSangue Di Sbirro – pAd Reworks EP ... 12-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1976/2021. New Copy ... $24.99 26.99
Great remixes of two funky tracks from a 70s soundtrack by Alessandro Alessandroni – both of which retain all their original warmth and charm! First up is "Manhattan", done in both a "nightclub" and "daylight" version – the first of which has a really deep bassline peppered with all this cool riffing guitar – the latter with maybe a starker vibe that shows the reality of the tune in the light of the day! Next is "Philadelphia" – again in night and day versions – a slinky, funky blend of piano and keyboards on the am take – and a bit clubbier and with some jazzy flute on the pm version! 12-inch, Vinyl record
