"Stanley Clarke and a "new" band attempt to create some kind
of funk/rock hybrid-that is one side funk,another of hard rock and overall "Rocks,Pebbles And Sand" doesn't make that much musical sense.The opener "Danger Street",a snarling,eccentrically
sung hard rocker and the thumping tital cut are very interesting
but only the George Duke collaberation of "We Supply",a masterful
Brothers Johnson-like slab of hard funk really makes a lasting
impression ammong this muck!One reviewer called this album no form and all content and that somes it up-bomastic arrangements and instrumentation making up for good compositional skills."
Stanley Is The Man--And This Album Proves It!

"Stanley Clarke is arguably the greatest bassist to ever walk the earth. Many people know him for 'School Days,' 'I Wanna Play For You,' and others. But this album, 'Rocks, Pebbles And Sand' is a lot better than what people give it credit for.
Yes, Stanley does sing on this record, but his voice isn't terrible. Among the highlights of the record are 'We Supply,' 'Underestimation,' 'Danger Street,' and the 11-minute epic 'The Story of a Man And A Woman.' The album also features the legendary drummer Simon Phillips on drums and percussion.
Yes, this album isn't Stanley's most popular by any means, but it's still very enjoyable. Give this record a chance, because if you give it a listen, chances are you'll like it.
A very nice effort by Stanley. ENJOY!!!"
