Get it From the Bottom

Check this link out to a discography of records that Pittsburgher Bob Babbitt played bass on: You'll see all the hits he's well known for, like the Temp's "Ball of Confusion" and "Masterpiece," Marvin's "Inner City Blues," and the Spinners "Rubber Band Man."

But check out the '60s part of the list - before Babbitt was a Funk Brother, he was basically hard at work recording Soulcialism's Greatest Hits. Edwin Starr's "SOS" and "Agent 00 Soul," Little Carl Carlton's "Competition Ain't Nothin'", Platters' "With This Ring," Eddie Holland's "Leavin Here," Freda Payne's "Band of Gold," Chairmen's "Give Me Just a Little More Time,"all get regular spins when we break out the crowd-pleasers - he's even on the biggest Eagle hit of 'em all, Stevie Wonder's "We Can Work It Out."
