    .....a prime example of the KISS method of playing: Keep it simple, stupid!!!!!!!!

    ...straight four-on-the floor grooving!

    I know a lot of people are tired of stepper's songs (especially Chicago-heads), but:

    Kelly and Lyle has found an ol' school formula and it has worked! That's what it's all about.

    That's why the entire Happy People album (CD 1, at least) is being played in the clubs.

    I've got to listen to that song next time I hear it on the radio. There is nothing better than a 'just right" bassline; not too much, not too little. :hyper: :bassist:

    Right, Cheese. But get the album. It's nothing but 'just right' basslines and tracks to get people dancin'!.
