Tommy McClure bass info needed !!
I have just relistened to "Don't play that song" by Aretha and thought WOW - who was that bassist?? I searched a lot and found out it was a guy named Tommy McClure. He played in the Muscle Shoals session band "The Dixie Flyers" and they backed Aretha on that track when she recorded it there.
McClure is totally underated - he deserves recognition for "Don't play that song" alone!! A fantastic walking bass line if ever there was one. Plus, I presume he's a white boy as a lot of the session players down there were actually white, believe it or not...
Does anyone have any further info on him - is he still on this planet??
What other funky traxx can I listen to with him on it???
Any info would be really appreciated
