When it comes to the Bass guitar, the first name that comes to mind for most people is the Legend that is Stanley Clarke, so we here at Robinsongs are immensely proud to be issuing the Definitive Collection of Stanley’s amazing career.

A Double CD of Stanley Clarke’s work from 1975 through to 1990, which also covers the Clarke / Duke project, Fuse One and the Stanley Clarke Band eras.

This superb package features sleeve notes by Charles Waring, who interviewed Stanley specifically for this release, and you get a true insight into how some of the tracks were recorded and Stanley’s thoughts about certain tracks and the friends that played with him.

This “Definitive Collection” features all the album versions, so you can enjoy the classics such as ‘School Days’, ‘We Supply’ (which was co-written with Louis Johnson) and ‘Heaven Sent You’ (featuring Shalamar’s Howard Hewett on vocals) along with the jazzier side to Stanley’s work like the amazing ‘Concerto For Jazz’ parts 1 & 2.

Stanley Clarke had a very successful period recording with his friend George Duke as the Clarke/Duke Project and this package features five tracks from those albums including the brilliant version of Parliament’s ‘Mothership Connection’ and the smash ‘Sweet Baby’, a track that Stanley recalls was a real pivotal moment in their careers, as they had a Top 10 hit with it and toured for over five years on the back of it.

The Stanley Clarke Definitive Collection – Enjoy…
