Stark Reality

This is Stones Throw's 2003 anthology of Stark Reality. The bulk of the band's 1970 albumStark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop is contained on this anthology, along with Stark Reality's theme song for the late 1960s show "Say Brother."

The Music Shop album reworked children's music written by Hoagy Carmichael into jazz/funk/psych mini-epics and became a favorite sample source for hip-hop producers in the 1990s and 2000s, from Large Professor to Will.i.am.
