If you want to talk great bass players the name Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna) has to me mentioned at some point. There are many great examples of his playing (especially on live recordings where he makes up for other JA members deficiencies) but this is a personal favourite. Very melodic with a lovely fat sound that perfectly compliments the mostly acoustic accompaniment.
Hot Tuna - Watch The North Wind Rise (1976)
And for anyone interested I’ve often claimed this as my favourite song of all time. It’s definitely in the top 5.
