    'Twas probably Carol Kaye (She'll have it written down somewhere) :D :D
     
  3. According to Standing in the Shadows of Motown it was Jamerson that did that track.

    A good rule of thumb, is that if it was an amazing bass line, Jamerson did it.

    If it was a subpar, I've-just-converted-from-guitar bass line, it was Kaye.

    :D :D :D

    Kidding.
