I think his work with the central station is the best.
I agree..... GCS was a lot more bass-oriented anyways, even if most of their songs weren't as good as Sly's.
I'll go with GCS. actually.
deffently GCS, does nybody know the tab or music to Pow?? please message me if u do.
I used to play along with Sly and the Family Stone's "Anthology" and the Graham Central Station compilation. I will lean towards GCS, however, I can't ignore "Thank You" or the fuzz bass on "Dance to the Music."
All of the above!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"GCS the baddest group from east to west!"
I think he was at his peak during the GCS years.
I'm with you there......
maybe because his playing matured, or he felt free-er
is that a word? it is now LOL
I feel that the full implications of style are much more evident with GCS than Sly. I'm getting the Larry Graham boxed set this Friday!!!
Hair is easily my favorite GCS tune - I've been trying to get that intro for years....., but The Jam is MY JAM.... Everytime I hear that one, I magine being in a group and I'm the one that goes around and plays all the instrument solo's on each instrument..... including the one by the female in the group that played on the FK1 Windvox or something like that and her solo had that machine gun sound in the middle..... I gotta go find my fro wig for that one!!!
I also likee the way that Larry sung bass. Hap E 2 C U A Gain, baw baw baw.... Hap E Cuz U R My Friend , baw baw baw.... Haven't seen you in a long long time (Schoo Bee Doo) Hap E that U'r Doin' Fine!! I LOVE that little Ditty!
It Ain't Nuttin' But A Warner Brother's PARTY!!!
Everything Larry Graham has done has been great, but there was something special about GCS. One of my top 10 favorite bands of all time .......
I like Hair the best, too. Incredible bass. Also, The Jam is phenominal playing, too.
If Hendrix were a bass player, I'd think he'd sound like Larry Graham.....listen to The Jam and you'll see what I'm talking about.
I agree with you ALMOST.... he could have left "One In A Million" ALONE!!!
Oh, yeah, I should add Feel The Need----awesome tune!
that fuzz tone in Dance to the Music comes from the old Acoustic 360, right?
Mario, don't dog Graham for "One in a Million." A man has got to pay the mortgage and eat. It's good to be loved by bassists, but a couple of hit records have put some money in Larry Graham's pockets hopefully.
Yeah, you're right... my mother-in-law LOVES that song, and I got a good bit of play back in the day doing a Larry G. imitation.... (I sang bass in HS & College Choruses) But the cover of the album.... the whole swooning tune.... I think to myself.... "That man can litearally make cabinets walk across a stage.... why is he doing this to me!!!???"
Cai't blame a Brotha for needing to get paid... we all gots to eat sum how!!
I went with GCS. But the chrorus bassline in "Can You Handle It?" is one of my favorites too. I used to freak out the soundmen at venues by playing the intro of "The Jam" all fuzzed out like that.
what kind of music did GCS play?, was it funk like sly and the family stone? ,i've never heard them but i wonna check them out
if you want me to stay is an awsome bass line from larry in sly and the family stone
