    That's a great idea.

    Come to think of it, we should have a forum where people can discuss the recorded output of musicians and such.

    Wait a minute, we have a forum called "Recordings"!

    Hm, might work.

    Buh bye.

    In my own humble opinion it would be absolutely impossible to single out just one album as "The Best" example of bass playing. Each style of music has its own examples. I don't have any one favorite album for bass or even a top ten.

    Others here may in fact have just one and I hope they will tell us what it is.

    I got a 5-disc changer on my cheapie stereo.
    Slots 1 & 2 are changed on a regular basis.
    Slots 3,4, and 5 have Jaco, Michael Manring,
    and Charles Mingus in `em - always :).

    I think it all depends on the type of music you're listening to. Lately I have really been enjoying Selling England by the Pound By Genesis. Mike Rutherford has some really great stuff on that album. Or the Live Blues Brothers Album, Donald "Duck" Dunn is laying down some killer grooves.
