    Anybody hip to him?
    I had to learn an older Ann Peebles song for my
    R&B band- I probably heard his work without knowing it- He & his brothers were the HI Records
    rhythm section-
    Beautiful! This is the way to play the bass- nothing but the right notes.
    When you can play as solidly as this, you are there!
    Do yourself a favor & check him out-
    Right ON, Leroy!:cool:

    Yeah, the HI records catalog is up there with all the great soul labels of the time for some essential bass listening.
