Dig That Bass

Library music (aka production or stock music) is music recorded in a multitude of contexts and styles by work-for-hire musicians, owned by music-library labels, and lent out to commercial enterprises in TV, radio, and film. So there’s a good chance you’ve heard this somewhere. Thought I’d give credit to the guys responsible…guitar – Colin Pincott. bass – Don Gillies. drums – Peter Trout. organ / composer – Mike Lease. Library music is fascinating because if there’s such a thing as ephemeral music this is it—recordings that were meant for a certain moment then filed away when that moment has passed, with the general public unable to purchase it at the time. They give us a picture of the way day-to-day music sounded decades ago, outside either the bounds of pop-chart aspirations or the critically-acclaimed underground. This particular piece screams “use me in the most sleazy way!”

  1. I love it! This song is the epitome of the word ‘groovy’. Thanks for sharing, I might be cheeky enough to use it in a future YouTube video as end credits music!

  2. This type of group was overworked and rushed for time, and they had to come up with new songs on train journeys between recording sessions, so they did pretty good. 🙂
