    Anyone know who plays bass on "You're the one that I want" - the hit single by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John?

    I am rehearsing this tune for a production of Grease and it has taken me hours and hours to get anywhere near close to the great grooving country swing feel tha the bassist has on the record.

    Whoever it is - what a player!

    I want to say that it's Chuck Rainey but I'm pretty sure that's wrong. How's that for an inconclusive answer? :D
