The Who, powered by the thunderous bass of John Entwistle is on full display with this 1971 release. The song "My Generation" (which was originally released in 1965), features the first-ever recorded electric bass solo in rock music. The Who have many great albums, but "Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy" is a good compilation overview, especially of the first decade of their career.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers and bassist Flea pour out the funk on Blood Sugar Sex Magic. Produced by the masterful Rick Rubin and released in 1991.
Originally released in 1974 on Epic Records, Stanley's self-titled CD is a true masterpiece. His double/electric bass playing and compositions serve as a powerful combination into the mind of a genius. This is a must have!
