The Stark Reality: Shooting Stars

written by Hoagy Carmichael and Aileen Fisher

from Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop

recorded spring 1970 at Natural Sound Studio, Maynard, Massachusetts

available on CD; also check out for more goodies

When stars get loosened in their sockets,
They shoot off at night like rockets;
Though I stay and watch their trip
And search where they have seemed to slip,
I never ever find a chip to carry in my pockets.

Wow, what a compliment! Thanks, man. I've been digging your site as well, although apparently I need a different browser or something b/c the screen always goes all loopy on me. Getting into Roy Wood lately. Thx for putting that on the radar screen...
