Steve's post mentioning Hal Blaine reminded me of those great session players of the 1960's, Carol Kaye in particular. As a DJ I spun a lot of great Motown wax with those absolutely KILLER bass lines. Every time I heard "Bernadette" I pictured a huge black man on bass with a 'fro 3 feet wide and hands that could palm a bowling ball. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was a skinny white lady... LOVE YA, CAROL!!
