Listening to some Invictus label songs. I have to learn Band of Gold and some Chairman of the Board Backing vocals. Elmore James, Everything is Tuesday. Give me just a little more time. While Listening My Dad and me were very impressed by the Band Particularly The Bass playing on Elmore James. Holland Dozzier Holland I think were in Dispute With Motown we read at this time. Anyone know what musicians They used and who the bass Player was Was Looking to see if it Was Bob Babbit The only name could see on this article relating to a bass was bassist Tony Newton Were not sure if hes our hero:)

Come on Mr unique your normaly the chap who knows :)

well it's hard as usual to make sense of the question :rotfl: but...

bob babbitt was a member of the funk brothers, motowns house band on stuff like papa was a rolling stone, mercy mercy me, signed sealed delivered, my guy, i heard it thru the grapevine etc

tony newton played on abc, don't leave me this way, baby love, stop in the name of love, where did our love go, and toured with the jackson 5, stevie wonder, diana ross, marvin gaye, the temptations, etc, etc, etc

so take your pick, or idolise both of them

don't forget larry graham from sly and the family stone and graham central station, who is probably the number 1 funk bassist, who invented the slap funk bass style. even bootsy collins states him as number 1 bassist, whom many would say themselves was top bassist (ie. flea etc). you can't go wrong with all the sly stone albums, or parliament/funkadelic albums (the proper 70s ones anyways), you'll get a real adventure in bass from those, differnt style completely to the earlier motown stuff tho

btw ray parker jr played guitar on band of gold. thats the dude from ghostbusters. he also played with herbie hancock, so all is forgiven

Sorry i am hard to understand .. :)

James Jameson did my guy i thought on a Stand up double bass as well as jimmy mack by Martha and the vandellas. Then we read he dubbed the Fender precision bass over the top. It was said he was so note perfect you could not even hear the overdub.

quite interesting to http://www.bassland.net/jamersonhits.htm especially The article about Bob Babbitt

[Quote I talked with Bob Babbitt and he is the bassist on "I've Got To Use My Imagination" and "Midnight Train to Georgia" by Gladys Knight & The Pips

I also was in touch with Harry Weinger at Motown and Wilton Felder is Bassist on I Want You Back along with with Joe Sample and Don Peake (keys and guitar) ]

pictures of Felder and Peake doing the jackson five sessions

This article features the bit about his up right bass http://www.philbrodieband.com/muso_james_jamerson.htm

I think the Bass playing on the love you save Jackson five is amazing .

Been through the Tabs to http://www.mobass.fsbusiness.co.uk/tab.htm

Quite enjoyed them.. I am a Firstly a guitar player not a bass player But still this quite interesting to me.


But still leaves me without knowing Who The Bass person was with Invictus studio. Can only assume from exhaustive reading That's its the guy in the original Thread. Superb anyway.

Couple of more Interesting things if you like me like the nuts and bolts side of Music. folks were playing some 70's stuff One was Al Downing keep Holding on long version. First time i ever heard a Banjo being used on a dance record with superb effect. + Something by Act one, Called Tom the peeper, what an infectious guitar riff so easy to play on one string that gets you up out your seat dancing. This music was so much more interesting than the music my generation is listening to. Well i think so anyway. Inspires me to keep striving with my guitar and my Vocals.
