How about the bass jam in the Communication Breakdown medley from LA '70?

Jonesy wasn't quite prepared for this platform... as much as I dig his bass work, this impromptu solo does not come off that well. Tempo is off and he fails to get into his signature groove; don't get me wrong the solo doesn't irritate me (the BB Hill Organ solo DOES!), but I'd rather recommend his amazing fretwork during Heartbreaker from Berkeley 14 sept.... the closest he got into the John Entwistle 'OX' territory.

TSRTS WLL during the freak out part (Theramin?) - he goes off. And it is CRIMINAL there are no shots of him during that particular freight train like bass run.

Live Bass--Usually I go to three songs; Sick Again, In My Time of Dying and TSRTS. The #1 spot may go to Sick Again from 3-5-75....

 

 

This was excellent! Thank you, Paul. :goodpost:

C'mon folks, is there really a "best bass solo" where John Paul Jones is concerned? The man plays something amazing and different every show. You can't name a show where he doesn't shine.

Not sure if we were supposed to stick to actual solos as such, but I'll a bit of a sleeper: "Whole Lotta Love" on 7/7/80 in Berlin.
