180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso With Kevin Gray at RTI/AcousTech From Original Epic Records Tapes! First Time On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl!
School Days was a game changer for the legendary Stanley Clarke in many ways.
Not only did it forever etch the title superstar musician to his name all over
the world, it also crossed his incredible music over to a whole new level of
listeners, which to this day continue to flock to this album for the solid funk,
rock, jazz and fusion release that only this master jam could achieve.
After a very successful run with Chick Corea’s Return To Forever, world class
bassist and multi-instrumentalist Stanley Clarke branched out on his own and
made some very credible solo albums. When School Days hit in late 1976, it was
not uncommon to hear tracks like Hot Fun and School Days being played on all
formats of radio. Whether it be urban, rock, or jazz, the School Days album was
the go to album of choice for many radio stations, as its rhythms and cosmic
funk / rock / jazz energy would truly enhance the listening experience to a
whole new realm.
Friday Music is so very honored to offer for the first time on 180 Gram
Audiophile Vinyl the legendary Stanley Clarke School Days album. Mastered
impeccably from the original Epic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at
RTI/AcousTech, this stunning album is a fusion masterpiece just perfect for the
audiophile vinyl domain.
For this star-studded affair, Stanley Clarke reached out to some of the greatest
musicians of all time like John McLauglin, George Duke, Billy Cobham, Chick
Corea, Steve Gadd, Icarus Johnson, and many others.
Not only do you get the wonderful songs previously mentioned, but there are even
more classics like Quiet Afternoon with some very solid drumming by Steve Gadd,
Desert Song featuring a stunning duet with John McLauglin on guitar, as well as
the apocalyptic album closer Life Is Just A Game, which features some very
powerful bass and drum fireworks between Stanley Clarke and Billy Cobham, with
George Duke’s amazing keyboard expertise.
To celebrate this special limited edition release, Friday Music have also
included a very rare gatefold cover, which features all of the original artwork
