Jah Wobble’s top 10 favourite bass lines : number 4 : ANTHONY JACKSON on The O’Jays’ ‘For The Love Of Money’
(For number 5 in Jah Wobble’s top 10 favourite albums please go here)
This intro of this B-Line still sends shivers down my back. It has such a vibe. The sound of Philly was a massive inspiration to me. This track is probably about my favourite track from the Philly stable. It’s quite fitting that Anthony Jackson cited the legendary James Jameson as a big influence on him. When ‘…Money’ was being mixed, legendary producer/writer Kenny Gamble is said to have impulsively reached over and added echo to Jackson’s opening riff.
