Also, I would like to know who is on bass on the album for Edwin & Blinky.

Medusa,that's a synth bass on that record.I think Steve Porcaro did the part.
|By Uptight (184.108.40.206) on Monday, July 07, 2003 - 10:42 pm:|
The credits in the special edition "Thriller" CD say Louis Johnson is on electric bass on "PYT," Greg Phillingaines on keyboards, James Ingram on Portasound keyboard. There are other musicians including Janet & LaToya on bkg vocals.
It sounds like it's mostly Phillingaines' performance on keyboard bass with Johnson's electric bass filling in during the ad lib segment of the record ("Na, na, na...").

Uptight,that's correct.Phillingaines is doing that synth part.I know Steve Porcaro did some work on that album too.

I'd heard it was one from the Duo of Brothers' Johnson...is this the same one? He did a great job...Thanx Uptight!

Louis Johnson is the bassist from the Brothers Johnson. He & brother George (guitars) played on many sessions Quincy Jones produced from the mid 1970s to the early 1980s.

they also recorded for the uk Action Label.
I have a track by them but cant remember what at present recordedaround 1968.
A good friend gave me it at an all-nighter a few years ago for sorting him out regards some record info.

Thanx a lot Kev, what's been going on with U?

Mr. Wendall, all I can say is U Go (Boy) With Your bad self...
|By SisDetroit (220.127.116.11) on Thursday, July 10, 2003 - 09:35 pm:|
On the original cuts, it was not Mr. Wendal. He has only been with them about 12 years. He is on the 70's soul jam cd, and dvd. He is on the new live cd. I have a video of them (with Mr. Wendal) on the Magic Johnson show, and a couple more vidoes at various places.
|By SisDetroit (18.104.22.168) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 04:01 pm:|
I would like for you to hear Mr. Wendal on bass. Listen to sound clip #10 "Shake It Well." I believe you can hear a great bass line there.
Also, if you've never heard Winzell Kelly, who replaced Squirrel, take a listen to #12. "Thank You For Your Love." (Previously led by Wee Gee)

Being a Dramatics' fan from way back I have to order that CD. One question Sis, if you already have it can you give some of the times of the songs? Are any real short? I suspect some are just little teasers as was the case with a live album by the Manhattans a short while back.
|By KevGo (126.96.36.199) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 04:24 pm:|
Not much going on...Just getting things ready for my next trip to Detroit (which will be within the next few days!).

This is cool -- but then, I already knew Wendal could play bass, from when he was with ...what was Pat's band called anyway Wendal? (laugh)
|By SisDetroit (184.108.40.206) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 04:40 pm:|
RD - They are all full songs except for the Medley at #11. This was a live concert, some of which were overdubbed in the studio.
Sue - I'll find out the name of that band. :o)
KevGo - If you are here on Aug 2nd, there will be a free concert at Hart Plaze downtown(Woodward & Jefferson) featuring the Dramatics and others.
|By Sue (220.127.116.11) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 04:44 pm:|
Thanks Sis. Since it was Pat's group I really should remember that ...
What's the occasion for the free show?
|By SisDetroit (18.104.22.168) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 04:48 pm:|
Sue - I'll find out and let you know. You know I only know some of some things and none of most things. (LOL)
|By SisDetroit (22.214.171.124) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 05:06 pm:|
I know Comeria Park is having the Detroit Music Festival on Aug 1 & 2. "The Detroit Music Festival featuring R. Kelly, Nelly, The Gap Band, The Isley Brothers with Ronald Isley, Nas, Jaguar Wright The O'Jays, The Four Tops, The Whispers, The Temptations, Maze and India Arie."
GC Cameron and the Temptations will perform on Aug 2nd. So, hopefully, the Dramatics will finish in time for us to check out GC Cameron at Comerica Park.
|By SisDetroit (126.96.36.199) on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 - 05:08 pm:|
Sue - I know you are going to see GC Cameron. If you can, would you find out what time they are going on stage.

Bernard Reed was the bassist on most of Jackie Wilson's Chicago recordings "Higher And Higher" and "Whispers"
Though he's probably better known as the trombonist for Earth, Wind & Fire, Louis Satterfield played bass on a lot of Chicago soul & blues hits from the sixties. Among them are "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass, "Selfish One" by Jackie Ross and Billy Stewart's "Summertime", "I Do Love You" and "Sitting In The Park"
|By 1Wicked (126.96.36.199) on Friday, July 18, 2003 - 04:20 pm:|
dvdmike...I was JUST reading that Satterfield taught Verdine how to play bass and taught Maurice how to play Kalimba. The Pharoahs/Phoenix Horns are/were some talented guys !
