The Brothers Johnson: Strawberry Letter 23 (Isolated Bass)

Here’s one great and funky bass line, isolated for your listening pleasure.

The tune is “Strawberry Letter 23” by The Brothers Johnson. The bassist of course is the legendary Louis Johnson.

Rick Suchow, who shared the isolated track, shares some info on this one:

“Hear the actual bass track from the Brothers Johnson tune ‘Strawberry Letter 23’, from the original master tape. At 4:20 of this video, the entire song replays with full band & vocals but NO DRUMS, so you can clearly hear the bass in context. (There is an electronic hi-hat in this mix).”
