What an awesome band, he hasn't had a band this cool since he played with Boomer in 1994.

Yep, Simon Phillips on Drums.
This band lasted for a few short years, but put out some awesome music.
Not sure why the group disbanded, but it may have had something to do with Stanley trying to put out
"pop" records in 1982. Animal Logic was his last "pop" band with Stewart Copeland in 1989/1990.

Yes the recording Rock Pebbles and Sand
had the Great Engineer   (who worked on Billy Cobhams Magic '77)
Dennis Mackay
that  helped the drums get the best mic up etc.
Making the sound great.


Stanley was told to do a Rock recording in 1980
by Epic Boss.  He said  in a interview



Yes 82 and 84
12" single mixes
and Carlos on Guitar Solo.

the '84 Time Exposure is out on a New Expanded CD (FunkyTownGroove/Epic)
with 12" mixes  5 extra tracks.

Funny you mention "Magic", Colin.  Though I
view this project as among Billy's best, the
unfortunate aspect is the final mix down really
wasn't that good.  The record is thin and lacks
any sonic punch.  On some re-releases of the
album in recent CD form the mix was much better.

The lack of a rich, sonic, mix on the Magic project
was made up for on the album "Simplicity of expression
depth of thought", where the mix was totally killing!
It's kinda too bad about the mix on Magic because
the music is just slammin!

I remember Magic coming up in discussion a long time ago. At the time I didn't recall having that album but, in listening to it through here all kinds of memory bells went off and I definitely had this one. But in acquiring these in CD now Magic is one that seems pretty tough to get domestically.

That track from Simplicity of Expression rang some bells, too.

In listening to both I have to say Magic sounds pretty alive and well to me, comparatively speaking, if it's a rendition of the LP on youtube.

I agree with what you say about Magic, Asaph. I'm not sure
if this is a remastered version or not but it sure sounds like it
is.

I bought the CD some years ago which came with both of these
albums together.
