STARK REALITY - ROLLER COASTER RIDE
Some of the maddest, most tripped-out work ever from this legendary group – sounds that are even more freewheeling and psychedelic than their famous Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop LP – lots more guitar and rumbling funk, and a tripped-out, stoned-up sort of approach to the music, lyrics, and even production – all of which makes for some really compelling work. Mad vibes meet fuzzy guitars – in the kind of record that would have been barely appreciated at the time, but is finally getting its due today! All tracks are very long – and include "Sunday's Song", "Roller Coaster Ride", "Too Much Tenderness", "Pretty Music", "Nanai", "Red Yellow Moonbeams", and "Sunday's Song". (Includes download card with full album – plus 56 download pages of notes, photos, and interviews!) ~ Dusty Groove
