10 Essential Bass Albums
Thought this was a nice mix and a good representation. Probably not the same 10 most of us would pick but still a bunch of good selections.
One of them would be Standing in the Shadows of Motown - Deluxe edition. Jamerson.
That certainly would not be my list but to each their own.....
I also peeked at Will Lee's & Wooten's Top-10 Essential Bass Albums-
Both had The Trio by Oscar Peterson (Ray Brown).
Lee & Wooten cite Larry Graham (Graham Central Station/Sly & The Family Stone).
Lee & Wooten both list albums with Wooten on bass (yeah, Vistor named one of his own). :)
Beller, Lee, & Wooten all cite a Jaco album.
Wooten & Beller list Steely Dan.
Lee lists Meaty, Big & Bouncy by The Who. I just picked that up yesterday...for nostalgia.
I own 9/10 from Beller's list
I own 8/10 from Lee & Wooten's Lists.
some alternate LPs:
any of the MCA / Chess 'box sets' particularly, the Chuck box, the Wolf box, the Muddy box and the Willie box. All represent the best of blues bass and the very beginnings of rock and roll bass by some of the best players of the day
Otis live at Monterey - Duck doin what Duck does
Abbey Road - Paul's work on Something in just remarkable
whatever the current version of the last Hendrix album is titled. Used to be "cry of love" now its something like "first rays of the new rising sun" billy cox at his best, and somewhat more controlled than the Band of Gypsies jams
the first pretenders record; one of the best all around first albums by any band; and the bass playing rocks
'we have come for your children' - the 2nd dead boys record: highlights are Son of Sam, aint it Fun and Big City
Will lee and V.Wooten picked too.
One of the albums picked by Victor Wooten is his own first solo album...sure doesn't seem to lack self-esteem.
The only record i've ever owned in this is Blood Sugar Sex Magik because as a 13 years old i was misguided and for some reason bought it... (i can honestly say i hate RHCP, though Flea has very little to do with it, in fact i would say Anthony Kiedis has most to do with it)
These records probably have good basslines (i wouldn't know for most of them honestly) but unfortunately they are played within the context of music i don't care for.
