    No Youtube on tap, but check out Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk. Two stanky bassists ripping it up on most of their cuts.

    I'm not 100% sure, but several tunes by Memphis Black (60's soul band, also known as Memphis Soul Band) sound like there are two basses playing the bass line in unison. Might be a chorus, but I don't think so.

    1980? Were you kicking around then in the English punk/new wave scene, pretty cool.

    I'm sure you've all seen the ultimate all-star bass jam. Everyone seems to overplay but; of all people, Flea!
    Stanley Clarke, Armand Sabal-Lecco,
    Flea, Bunny Brunel, Alex Al, Billy Sheehan, Stewart Hamm, Jimmy Johnson, Wayman Tisdale, Brian Bromberg, Marcus Miller

    Yes - I saw Delta 5 live in Brighton in the 1980s and they sounded great. The one with the fretless bass played low and bassy like Reggae dub, while the other bass player on a Fender, played higher up a bit like rhythm guitar. But it was interesting to see how 2 basses could work together in a band setting that wasn't about showing off at all. :)
