    Sorry, Good Times was the first to come to mind, and I was trying to not overthink it. Then after I hit the post button, I realized I still left out Bootsy and Larry Graham. And I didn't even post any synth bass things.

    My favorite composition from Moroccan Roll. I heard them play this in a little club two years ago. Looking forward to the DVD.

    I was going to mention this one also. Mind you the studio version is pretty mindblowing, too!

    Pink Floyd - Hey You - the fretless part played by David Gilmour

    Dave (in MA) points out that 'we' are choosing specific rather than random "bass parts I love"

    I am giving what I feel are 'random' pieces of basswork found within a song - some piece that jumps out; the rest of the song may have 'expected' basswork

    Then when one has to mention Pino Palladino's fretless bass work on Murder, on Gilmour's solo album About Face.

    And then there's Tony Levin's fretless bass on On The Turning Away (at least, I assume it's Tony, his name appears in the credits, and it certainly sounds like something he'd play).

    And that reminds me of the bass solo that Guy Pratt plays on the Delicate Sound Of Thunder version of One Slip (on the album it sounds like a Stick, again leading me to believe it was Levin again, and he really just repeats one riff several times, but when they played it live, Guy would sort of go bonkers on it)

    And to bring this full circle, there's a bass line that David Gilmour played that I think was awesome, and that's One Of These Days (actually, the first section is Gilmour and Waters, in stereo, I forget who's on the left and who's on the right, but one of them starts on one side, then the other comes in on the other a couple bars later...I forget who is playing bass on the rest of the track).

    Some of his best playing ever, imo. Stunning part! I have a lot of respect for Pino, but often I think he gets a bit lost in the mix. Not on Murder, though!

    Haha, hate to spoil the fun, but that was Maria Moran, using my bass and amp, and closely coached by me as she hadn't played bass before we recruited her for TP. If I recall, the only places I played bass on that album are The Fountain, Organism, and the choruses of The Guardian. I just wanted to be the drummer!

    As for the original topic, holy smokes I wouldn't know where to begin, there are so many brilliant bass parts over the decades.

    Well there are so many, especially among fusion artists. But these right off the top of my head:

    Gentle Giant - Playing The Game (Ray Shulman)
    Flower Kings - Rumble Fish Twist (Jonas Reingold)
    Genesis - Los Endos (Mike Rutherford)
    Café Jacques - Sands of Singapore (John G. Perry)

    'Good Times' was one of the first that came to my mind. James Jamerson's work on The Four Tops' 'Bernadette' is another.

    'Long Distance Runaround' is perhaps my favourite by Squire. Terrific interplay with Bruford.

    I love McCartney's work on the Sgt Pepper album but in particular 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds'.

    I really like the bass lines on some of those old Gerry and the Pacemakers hits- 'How Do You Do It' and 'I'm The One' particularly! Les Chadwick was the player.

    Yesterday I heard De Dijk - Nergens goed voor and I liked the bass-part. Not complicated, but I liked it:



    Another bass-part I really love is Fischer Z - The worker, I also love the keyboard-sound on that album. Wonder what instrument they used.
