James Jamerson’s Isolated Bass on “Ain’t That Peculiar” (with Drums)

Editor’s note: This week is Isolated Bass Week III. Follow along and be sure to check out all of the Isolated Bass Week archives too.

We’re closing out Isolated Bass Week III with the master, James Jamerson.

This is the audio track for Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar”, with the bass and drums isolated from the original Motown master tape. (And some other instruments leaking through).

I believe Uriel Jones is the drummer on the track.

But this is mostly about the bass.
