 History Of The Electric Bass
Carol was a “pick player” and had a unique approach to using the pick; the sounds she coaxed out of her bass were different than the sound many of her peers were getting, who were playing either with their thumb (in the style of  Monk Montgomery) or finger-style.
These musicians were hired in part because of their improvisational ability, and in part because they knew how to make “that sound that was selling all the records.” In time, all musicians that would last in the LA studio scene would have to acquire good sight reading abilities.
Carol Kaye was one of many unsung heroes of the recording industry of the 1960's.

Carol Kaye also picked various '60s rosewood-neck P-Basses on Beach Boys sessions (starting with a '63); too busy to change strings, she would simply trade in for a new P-Bass every two years.
Kaye kept her Fender medium flatwounds fairly high off the fingerboard, and she also placed a piece of felt under the bridge pickup cover, right where the strings left the saddles, to help mute the strings while picking.
Other key basses in Beach Boys lore are Kaye's Danelectro-which Glen Campbell borrowed for his solo on his hit song "Wichita Lineman," because of its hot pickup-and Lyle Ritz's acoustic bass with a low C extension.

First up is a lone track that was supposed to be part of Carol Kaye post but frankly, I'm still looking for a few better tracks to go with it but it's been months now and I wanted to finally get "Soul Reggae" out there before more time went by.
As for "2001," this oft-covered movie theme appears on a strange pop instrumental album by the Wonderland Space Shuttle, part of a larger trend of '60s and '70s albums that were all covers of TV and movie themes.
I'm not really a huge fan of the 2001 theme (though Deodato's is pretty essential) but this one holds up fairly well, especially in the beginning with those Afro-influenced drums and the keys.
