    What are your favourite tracks where the bass player used an Ampeg B15 or 18?

    hollywood, baby......
    someday I will find 4 or 5 other guys who want to play the blues the way it was played before it became all about guitar heroics
    can't guarantee each individual track, but didn't Staxx track most basslines through B15? That's several hundred of the best blues/soul/R&B/rock songs ever recorded. let's choose "dock of the bay" as a starting point

    Most Stax stuff is great. Jamerson cut a lot of his tracks done in LA with a B-15. Paper Tiger by Beck's a good one. Ted Nugent's early stuff was done on a B-18. The Stones cut a lot of stuff with a B-15. Peter Cetera used one with Chicago. Most tracks Klaus Voorman cut used one (Lennon's solo stuff, Carly Simon's "You're So Vain"). Ronnie Lane used one with Rod Stewart and the Faces. I could think of more once I wake up.
