Favorite Bass Album?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by ourworldisgrey, May 9, 2010.


  1. We've all had the "favorite bass player" talk, but where would suggest someone getting into them start?

    Mine is Brian Cook on Easter by These arms Are Snakes.

    Victor Bailey - Low Blow comes to mind. Tribute he did to Jaco was excellent.

    Zeppelin II sold me on being a bass player.
     
  6. When I first started playing bass I didn't like Zeppelin at all. I was 14 and that's what my dad liked... No way was I going to like the same thing! :spit:

    Now 20 years later I agree with this. LZII is the perfect bass album.

    Yeah, I have to agree with Led Zeppelin II. Ramble On is heavenly. I'm a fan of Physical Graffiti too.

    Personally, I love the bass sound on Tool's Lateralus album. The melodic thing works for me.
     
  8. School Days - Stanley Clarke

    "Abbey Road" made me listen to and want to play the bass. "Fragile," "Moving Pictures" and Maiden's "Peace of Mind" sealed the deal.
     
  10. Me'shell Ndegeocello - Peace Beyond Passion. In fact, I might listen to it right now.

    Man there are just way too many to pick one. Beatles, Yes, Zeppelin, Primus ( I could go on forever).


    A very under rated bass album however is Jethro Tull "Thick as a Brick".

    How's that?:bassist:
     
  15. Rush - Permanent Waves
    Queensryche - Operation:Mindcrime

    For me it was seeing the 2005 Cream reunion CD. Jack Bruce and his early Gibson bass sounded wonderful and seeing the guys have fun playing together again after all that they've been through was moving, to say the least. :bassist:
    I had tried playing the bass back in the early 80's when I had an ibanez flying V but I sold it and my Peavey rig for $250 to help pay for college :bawl:

  19. Iron Maiden-Powerslave, Steve Harris is overall my favorite bass player. He is so melodic in a metal setting and he really pulls it off.

    Rush-A Farewell to Kings, Moving Pictures, Geddy is....well geddy:bassist::bassist:
     
  20. I would have to say Billy Idol - Rebel Yell
    Something about that bass mix and tone that STILL drives me
