I am looking for recomendations on rock and pop/rock albums that have a good supporting bass player where the playing is on the simple side of the street instead of the complex side of the street. Albums like: Whats Going On/Marvin Gaye/Bob Babbit So/Peter Gabriel/Tony Levin Best of Vol 1/EWF/Verdine White The Joshua Tree/U2/Adam Clayton I am not looking for a Jaco or Marcus Miller type solo album project. I am not looking for something with a supporting bass player like Les Claypool, Cliff Burton, Flea, Geddy Lee, or Justin Chancellor. Nor Jamerson. Nor Rocco. I am not looking for some under-rated obscure player only you know about. I am not looking for an M-16 on fully automatic. I am looking for semi-automatic or three-round burst. I know that Bob Babbit, Tony Levin and Verdine White are top top top rated bass players, but their playing is tastefully "less" instead of overthetop "more". And I am looking for fairly popular albums, not obscure ones. I have been listening to "What's Going On" and "So" tonight and was wondering if there are albums out there, maybe only a handful, that would have similar bass playing. Albums that I do not know about. I have been searching here and I can not tell the catagory that a bass player fits into. I do not know if Colin Moulding of XTC is on the Stu Hamn side or the Adam Clayton side. I have Cliff Em All, and Marcus, and Jaco DVDs, but that is more like looking at a sports car that I can not own. Out of reach. I am looking for something I can drive home. Something that I can use to work on my feeling and my support role. Thanks, Tim99.
