Again I sing the praises of 70’s funk. This one is the perfection of Sly’s Family Affair style. Family Affair was the bigger hit but what do they know? Among its many virtues, this is the baddest baseline in history. I open the floor to other contenders.

Almost. Right everything but song, Gene. Everyday People. One note. first slap bass and early fuzz. But one fucking note through the whole song. Ridiculous. Larry Graham rules!

Both contender for sure – James Jamerson with Stevie?
Higher & Higher by Jackie Wilson has one bass riff over all the chord changes that is killer.
IWMTLH is Jamerson and Stevie. Jamerson also plays bass on Higher and Higher
