    I found that Strange Things is on iTunes now. Doug Wimbish is everywhere on this album, from playing guitar style solos to pretty much conducting a master class on playing below low E.

    Wimbish has been a favorite of mine since "Stain" by Living Colour. After hearing that album I actively sought out as much as I could with him on it. Another overlooked gem is Herb Alperts "Colors" album with Wimbish and Will Calhoun as Rhythm Section. I used to work out every day to "Trippy Notes for Bass".

    I first became aware of Wimbish in the 80’s through this work with Adrian Sherwood and the On-U-Sound on projects out of the U.K. always cool stuff.

    The first time I heard of him was on 'I Need Money Bad' by John Whitehed (1988). Very stylish playing with a great sound. Sadly I haven't heard him playing at that level on any other recordings. There must be some.



    It is also sad that on that record the production team was tight on money and didn't have afford to a flesh'n'blood drummer or decent horns.

    I found a copy of Tackhead Tape Time in like 1990 in a used bin, and it's always been one of my favourites.

    Later that year, I found "Friendly as Hand Grenade." I still don't think I've listened to it all the way through.

    To each their own.

    Still all of the old Sugar Hill stuff is great too. Pre Tackhead Tackhead.
