Definitely.


Also, all of Glenn Cornick's basslines from the first three Jethro Tull albums kick ass.

 

 

Yes, sir, most definately.

 

Cornick (and Casady) turned me on to bass in the first place.

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place (The Animals) is a very good suggestion, too, as are the Spencer Davis Group suggestions for sheer driving force. The House At Pooneil Corners (Jefferson Airplane).

Also Eric Burdon and the Animals. "We Gotta Get Outta This Place" is a good one.

 

 

Brings back memories of many years ago my band was rehearsing that song over & over in my basement.

At about midnight my neighbour phoned and said "OK enough already, when will your band get out of your place!"

All good and your post reminded me of another one; I'm Just a Singer in a Rock'n Roll Band by the Moody Blues. KILLER bass line!! It's a TRAVESTY that they aren't in the Rock'n Roll Hall of Fame!!

I love the OX too but most of his best stuff (like The Real Me) came in the early 70's. I think from 1971 to 1974 was when bass players really thrived as main members of the "Supergroups". IMO it was the peak years when creativity, musical abilty and technology all came together. No boundries.

RESPECT- Both the Aretha version and the lesser known Otis Redding version.

 

+1

 

The Aretha/Muscle Shoals stuff with Tommy Cogbill on bass (mostly). :thu:

 

It's just my personal preference, but I could spend a lifetime listening to and playing along with Jamerson, Dunn, Cogbill, and McCartney.
