"I'll never play in a band with Paul McCartney again" is what he said in the mid-70s

I've always liked Lady Madonna, Hey Bulldog and Rain.
I also like the Bass work on Beautiful Night and Too Much Rain, I know those are solo but they are Great nonetheless.

I would have to go for "Hey Bulldog" too, but the mono version. :salute

these are the bass lines that stick out in my head the most:

Lovely Rita - (just blows my mind)
Come Together
Dear Prudence
I Am The Walrus
I Saw Her Standing There
Hey Bulldog
Drive My Car
Tomorrow, when we both abandon sorrow.
Oh, baby, don't you let me down tomorrow,
Thro' the week we beg and steal and borrow.
Oh, for a chance to get away tomorrow.

Oh Yeah !

Paul´s best basslines during the Betales Period, off the top of my head now:
Come Together, Old Brown Shoe, Something, Paperback Writer,
Don´t Let Me Down, I´ve Got a Feeling.
The Love You Take is Equal to the Love You Make

I never realised this...I've just belted out the mono mix of this one and the bass is incredible. Boy these guys were multi instrumentalists!! :salute
