What this import collection does, quite simply, is package Stanley Clarke's arguably best-known and best-selling studio records for Epic/Columbia, beginning with his debut for the label in 1974. The other records here -- all of which have very solid tracks on them but also have some real filler -- are Journey to Love (1975), School Days (1976), Modern Man (1978) and the first Clarke/Duke Project album with George Duke (1981).
