Product Description

Product Description

Stanley Clarke is an American jazz musician and composer known for his innovative and influential work on double bass and electric bass as well as for his numerous film and television scores First time ever to be released in Expanded CD format includes 5 bonus tracks Digitally Remastered from the master tapes by Sean Brennan at Battery Studios Extensive Liner notes from Alex Henderson (Billboard, L.A. Weekly, All Music Guide) While still deeply into the R&B/funk thing, Clarke's Time Exposure is a cut or two above its immediate neighbors in quality, thanks mostly to some superior tunesmithing on Clarke's part. The title track is the prize of the set and one of the best funk numbers of Clarke's career, an ingratiating fusion of a riff and a tune that won't quit the memory, set to a vigorous groove and hammered out by rock guitarist Jeff Beck. Even the obviously radio-minded ballad "Heaven Sent You" (a number 21 R&B hit) is a better-than-average bit of R&B writing -- and here and elsewhere, Clarke wisely leaves the lead vocals mostly to others. The sheer speed and power of Clarke's electric and piccolo bass work is astonishing throughout the album, and the album as a whole has a techno sound and edge reflecting a period of time just before analog synthesizers were swept away by digital instruments. Ernie Watts and perennial co-conspirator George Duke make cameo appearances on one track apiece

HASH(0x9d5faef4) out of 5 stars Yes I'm Ready For The Future! 15 July 2003
By Andre' S Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sorry but after many years of musical inconsistantsy,
1984's "Time Exposure" stands out.It is without question Clarke's
best album of the 1980's (mabye ever)and it's loose concept about
the musicians musical future shines best on the sizzling,dancable
electro-funk numbers "Are You Ready (For The Future)",the tital
song,"Future" and the lovely Howard Hewitt pop vocal number
"Heaven Sent You" and it's Hewitt-less companion "Future Shock"
(not the Curtis Mayfield song) but these five songs make up the
core of this wonderful collection.On the faced-paced "Speedball"
and the frenetic "Spacerunner",Stanley Clarke's famous electric
bass thumping battles beat-heavy drum machines and swirling synths-adding a slightly more improvised tone to the proceedings.
The album's closest thing to a weak moment is it's closing
number "I Know Just How You Feel",a wonderful piece of hard-edged
new-wave funk nearly ruined by Clarke's poor excuse for singing,
a common failing of some of his earlier albums.But this minor
complaint is not enough to destroy the integrity,excellent
compositions and fine musicianship that characterizes this entire

HASH(0x9d5faf48) out of 5 stars Stanley Was Onto Something 3 Mar. 2011
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
During the early/mid 80's all too many musicians from Stanley Clarkes era found themselves complaing and worrying rather endlessly about the assault on their personal musical values in a new decade that seemed obssessed with electronic/computer/video game culture and surface level values of fasion. To an extent that was true but I think what some people remember about the 80's is the interesting reactions to that. It happened in all levels of pop culture:in music,literature and all matter of visual media. Perhaps it was the rebirth of "old fasioned" values in Regan era America that baught back a modern version of the retro 50's pseudo futurism but no matter what all this began to find it's way deeply into the jazz-funk scene during this time and artists such as Herbie Hancock with his similarly themed Future Shock album addressed this quite well and here so would Clarke.

There is an important difference in approch though. Whereas Herbie looked to further the electronic sound of his music via a DJ/hip-hop orietned sound Stanley Clarke decided to tackle the new wave side of funk on a bit further. For an album based in such a seemingly regid electronic dance ethic the nature of the music is rhythmically and musically rather diverse in nature. Some of the music is fact very well done but somewhat more stereotypical mid 80's electro such as "Are You Ready For The Future" and "Future" but Clarke also makes room for some more hardcore 80's funk here as well with pieces like "Speedball",the speedy title song and the hyperkinetic "Spacerunner" not only feature strong contributions from old Clarke musical collaborators Jeff Beck and George Duke but also the presense of P-Funk's "horny horns" as well,not only instilling the music with a strong sense of tradition but features some very inspired bass soloing from Clarke,both in a strumming and slapping style-often all at the same time.There's also time for the smooth R&B duet with Howard Hewett on "Heaven Sent You",something of a hit from this album and a modern day new wavish version of RTF's rocking,guitar oriented fusion sound on "I Know Just How You Feel"

The lyrical themes on the songs that do feature vocals (and there actually only a few of them) make it abundantly clear that Clarke and company are as concerned as many were about the artificial culture they saw as infiltrating music from all spectrums at the time. But all the same if the music is any indication they decided to take an approch to the situation to fight fire and marshmellows:by embracing elements of the new video-game/electro musical sound in order to enhance their sound rather than involuntarily sumbit to it without question. Now these heavy synthesizer/electronic elements were not quite through for Stanley Clarke after this album but because of the fact this album chose to address this head on, both musically and thematically I would personally recommend this as his strongest album of his more "electro" period not only because of this but based on the strengh,energy and high level of musicianship of the music here. Slap it on and just enjoy!

HASH(0xa143039c) out of 5 stars A more commercial outing for Stanley Clarke 9 May 2013
By Charles E. Rey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD when I first bought it back in the 1980's was really hip to have back then. Now some tracks sound a little dated, some still sound pretty cool. The drum machine really sounds dated now, however then it was cool. I am rating this CD on the fact that when it was released music was of course a little different. Now don't get me wrong, it does have a very high level of musicianship that only a musician like Stanley Clarke can have. I really like the sax solo that Ernie Watts takes on one of the tracks, and the bass duet he does with Louis Johnson is great. Howard Hewett does a nice vocal performance. If you buy this CD it is not "School Days" however it is a decent CD release. When I first bought it I would have rated it 4 stars.

HASH(0xa1430384) out of 5 stars Future Shock 19 Feb. 2002
By H. Wolfe III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm disappointed in the reviews of this CD. I personally love it! When you hear it, you have to keep in context the time it was made, 1984.George Orwells Future Shock had come to be. "Blinded Me with Science" was a hit record, you get the picture. Stanley was echoing the time period and with fantastic results. His playing was awesome and despite the tunes being relatively simple by Stanley Clarke standards, I defy anyone to show me another bass player who does what he has done on this CD before or since. Rock on Stanley! and the critics can get a grip!

HASH(0xa143084c) out of 5 stars This CD has become a part of my personality !!!! 9 Oct. 2007
By M. Balazki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had been playing bass guitar only for a few years when this CD ( cassette at the time ) came out. I loved it right from the start. As soon as the music started, I was blown away by the slap bass. The first song alone, has influenced my style and outlook as a bass player. Stanley plays his bass solos very melodically. His duet with Jeff Beck on Time Exposure is very catchy.
