    another great Bass line

    Glide by Pleasure (totally underrated Funk/Jazz artist)
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    One of my favorites is Jon Camp's bass in the last couple minutes of Song For All Seasons. Here's a live version that's not as good as the studio but interestingly, it comes right after he plays a 12 string acoustic part...

    Martin Turner Wishbone Ash , outro to Sometime World.


    John Wetton Larks Tongues pt 2, that ‘solo’ riff after the guitar build up.

    Yes I really grew into this album, (with the exception of 'Sandra's a Phonie' and 'None of Your Business'), especially those 3 Peter Veitch tunes, 'Singapore', 'Farewell My Lovely' that you mentioned, and 'Eberehtel'.

    Thela Hun Ginjeet - Tony Levin
    Journeyman - John Glascock
    Ashes are Burning - any of the live versions I've heard by Jon Camp - he did some fabulous stuff with it
    Walk on the Wild Side - Herbie Flowers
    Hyperactive - Thomas Dolby (or Matthew Seligman?)
    Breathing - incredible bass playing by John Giblin

    Give me 5 minutes and I'll have 6 different ones

    I was seriously considering including a track from this album, either this one or Batteries Not Included. Pegg is just insane on this album, a veritable bass clinic. Don't love all the compositions, but nothing but admiration for those bass tracks!
