Is anyone else here familiar with the band Quiet Sun?
Early 70's English prog group, Phil Manzanera was the guitarist an Eno helps out a little...
ANYWAY the last track 'Rongwrong' contains possibly the most beautiful bass solo I've ever heard. Just an old P-bass over Organ and piano can create the most inspiring thing in the world.
No lightning fast chops, just a meditation on a theme that develops and swells everywhere but where you'd expect.
I don't know anyone else who even know who this band are so show yourselves!
(incidentally the bassist was Bill MacCormick)

I felt I had to revive this ancient thread to put my 2 cents in. For those of you who like distinctive bass lines that can carry a tune to the next level, Bill MacCormick is a must listen. "Listen Now". Check out the bass for, "Law and Order" by Phil Manzanera / 801 and hear for yourself.
It is better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.
