    The whole Dusty In Memphis album is great! I've played Son of a Preacher Man on a lot of gigs over the years.

    this should be in recordings since its talking about a bassline, and not in bassists, where we'd put it if we were talking about the bass player him/herself

    That song is one of those songs where everything fits together miraculously well.
     
  7. the bassline is great. but, not as great as the horn parts.

    Used to cover that song.
    The line is a great groove. Smokey.
    Not hard, but it takes a lot of feel to pull it off.
    Really doesn't work out too well when the drummer starts to rush.
