Does anybody know who played bass on PP&M's recording of "Leavin' On A Jet Plane"? I heard it today on the radio and this particular speaker really brought out the bass track like I've never heard it before. Please don't tell me it was Dick Kniss, because this has to be the worst bass track of all time, and I'd be surprised if it was Dick. It sounds like somebody who really doesn't understand the function of the instrument in an arrangement and I hope that after this track was recorded the player was immediately transferred to a desk job at Warner Brothers and never allowed to touch a bass again.
OK, Josh - this is your expertise. Name that bass "player".
