“Immigrant Song”: John Paul Jones’ Isolated Bass (and Drums)

Editor’s note: We’re kicking off a brand new isolated bass week today – our third. This is going to be fun. Be sure to check out the Isolated Bass Week archives too.

Here’s a great isolated bass track to kick off our third Isolated Bass Week, featuring the combo of John Paul Jones on his Fender Precision bass and John Bonham on drums. The tune is Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song”, from Led Zeppelin III.

There’s a little guitar in the mix, but that didn’t bother us. Much.

What a duo!
