    Yo, all you R&B/Funk/Soul/Motown players, yall need to hear this cd! There is some excellent bass playing to be heard! The first cd is just as good but damn, this cd is a clinic on R&B/Soul bass playing! Guess who's playing? Nathan East AND Abe Laborial, Sr.! 'Nuff said!! Nathan East is all over the first one as well!

    I couldn't agree more but I tell ya what, you should've heard/seen Mike doing a couple of tunes off the 1st cd when he came here to the Tampabay area when he had Tom Barney on bass ! and Steve Ferrone on the "kit".Man this was vintage stuff".

    No disrespect intended.
    I'm a huge Motown fan, especially Marvin Gaye & Stevie Wonder. Michael McDonald is a fine singer and the tunes I've heard are well done, but for me, 'Ain't nothin' like the real thing, baby.'

    That's fine guys but I was referring to the musicianship and bass playing on the record. I dig the originals too but I also enjoy newer renditions as well if done tastefully which MM does on this record.
