John Paul Jones: “What Is And What Should Never Be” Isolated Bass Track

Zach McFatridge shared this clip of John Paul Jones’s isolated bass from the Led Zeppelin classic “What Is And What Should Never Be” from their second album.

With some bleed from the drums, it’s easy to hear Jones and drummer John Bonham locked in tight.
