  1. @Cat Burrito you mentioned The Cure. I wore out my VHS of The Cure In Orange.
  2. “I, have been in you, and you, have been in me....”
  3. @MB1 ah yes. The CD version of course! Baby Snakes (live), Zappa in New York, Does Humor Belong in Music...? Arf!
  4. Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - Roxy & Elsewhere Jimi Hendrix Experience - Live at Winterland AC/DC - If You Want Blood...
  5. Billy Joel’s guitarist’s from the 2007 tour, and Billy’s set list. And a glow in the dark whistle thingy from one of the original members of P-Funk (about 1991).
  6. And don’t forget that once you’ve got the strap on there’s nothing left to do but plug it in.
  7. Randy Crawford - You Might Need Somebody. Absolutely wonderful
  8. The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
  9. Guys I can’t thank you enough for the responses. Quality stuff. I think my Jazz bass is beyond another fret dress, perhaps I should’ve said this earlier, so I think I’m gonna go for the refret. And whilst I may have one eye on its value I don’t think I’ll ever sell it. I appreciate the comments regarding these two points. I just wish I’d never had the Floyd Rose trem fitted..., I’m joking, I’m joking 😁
  10. Great responses. Thank you bassbiscuits I’m in Cheshire. Thinking of taking it to Jon Shuker
  11. I have a 1974 Fender Jazz bass. I’ve had it since 1993 and in that time I’ve gigged and recorded with it and noodled and rehearsed and practiced with it; it is my mainstay, my beloved..., and I think it needs a refret. And that thought, that of such a change, gives me the fear. So, good people of Basschat, am I just being daft? Have you done the same? Should I or shouldn’t I?
  12. Diehard Prince fan here. I agree. The run from 1980, the album “Prince” to 1988 with “Lovesexy” is golden to me however I clearly recall my disappointment with the 1989 Batman soundtrack and the start of said patchiness. Thereafter only “Come” from 1994 and “The Rainbow Children” from 2002 did it for me, with maybe “Exodus” from 1995 at a push. Lots of stuff from the 90s by Prince which I find unlistenable. That said, Prince & the Revolution era, mid 80s, to my ears anyway, were just the best.
  13. The track Purple Rain was recorded live by Prince & the Revolution with Brownmark on bass. Fender Jazz bass through an SVT. Check out more of Brownmark's playing on 17 Days or on America on the Around the World in a Day album. The track often referenced as a good example of Prince's bass playing is Let's Work off the Controversy album. Here's a few more of my favourites - Partyup - Dirty Mind She's Always in My Hair - The Hits/The B-Sides The Ballad of Dorothy Parker - Sign O' The Times The Sensual Everafter - The Rainbow Children 777-9311 - What Time Is It? Finally, because I've just been listening to it (!), check out what he's playing on on Alphabet St.
  14. Couldn’t agree more. Couldn’t agree less. 😁
