Not rock music but River of Bass by Underworld does the job :
That is some awesome low end. And I wonder if any one on here, anyone, could tell me where it was recorded. Not Abbey Road/EMI, correct?
And the winner is.............not a rock but a reggae record :
Transformer: I have the original US Orange label, Flexi-disc. I would say this album is one of the most visceral I own. I mean it's like Lou Reed is standing in the room with you. I have an early CD of this and it comes no where close to the LP. Would highly recommend an early US or UK copy for anyone that wants to hear some magic.
There is some seriously low bass synthesizer on Boz Scagg's album "Dig" from around 2001 (mastered by Bob Ludwig).
I recall at the Stereophile show in San Francisco a couple of years later that Peter McGrath of Wilson Audio used that CD to show off the Wilsons. This is not the familiar, nice, fat meaty bass guitar note (around 40Hz) we all know and love, but extremely low bass about an octave lower. You may not be able to hear it on your system.
I almost blew a woofer on that track.
Shawn Colvin's A Few Small Repairs possesses a surprising amount of low-end authority.
Bass on the Grand Funk "Red" album is especially awesome.
The opening bass note almost blew out my ears the first time I heard Morph on headphones.
Catch a Fire by The Wailers is enough of a rock record to count. Even on the crappiest, sharpest sounding speakers it manages to rock a low end.
1. The song “Senses” on New Order’s first album Movement (Is it a synth or bass guitar? Either way it’s magnificent)
2. “Question” on the Moody Blues’ Question Of Balance (specifically in the slow middle part of the song)
both original US LPs.
The deep bass (I think there are two of them in this recording) on Donald Fagen’s ‘Snowbound’ is always resonating very nicely on my car stereo....
Oh yes indeed, nearly blew my mum's boyfriend's speakers one fine high night when we'd cranked up Seconds Out to eleven...
Chemical Brothers - Under The Influence
From the 'Surrender' record - is the one that springs immediately to mind.
Gangsters by The Special AKA. Especially on the 45.
On CD, the Japanese Pastmasters series reveal this the most.
Jesus. You're not wrong! Nothing else on here has come close to this on my DT250's.
Came for the bass, stayed for the lyrics.
Shook/shakes mine too, glad I kept my vinyl. Later releases removed this track due to not Byrne/Eno not wanting to cause upset as some people are offended by setting prayer to music apparently..
The synth in Aerosmith's Spaced always sounded awesome....
The bass on Bowie's "Blackstar" album are LOOOOW!!!
Drums that close out Let’s Go Crazy off Purple Rain...sounds great on the Cornwalls.
Enya’s title track Watermark has a few astonishing low bass notes.
Genesis’ Fly On A Windshield is a real waker upper! Love the quiet build up then boom!
"Flight of the Cosmic Hippo" - Bela Fleck
"Chameleon" - Herbie Hancock
Pretty much anything on Floyd's The Wall or Pepper's Blood Sugar.
Andy McCulloch's double bass drums sure get the floorboards rattling in the opening track on the self titled album by FIELDS.
