Why does bass sound so killer on recordings from the 70's? The tone is so fat and warm. I listen to a lot of different music, but the 70's bass sounds just reach out and grab you. Three examples that come to mind.... "Feeling Stronger Everyday" /Chicago /Bass: Peter Cetera "Your Smiling Face" /James Taylor /Bass:Lee Sklar "Whenever I Call You Friend" /Kenny Loggins/Stevie Nicks /Bass: George Hawkins Granted, those are 3 very killer bassist, but what made those bass parts stand out? Is it how they were recorded, how the album was mixed, etc. I just don't hear bass lines these days that are so pronounced. Maybe they're just further in front in the mix? Why don't people lay down bass tracks like that anymore? Any suggestions for recreating 70's bass tones. (I should probably search...or does that have it's own forum?) Thanks.
