Carol Kaye, one of the most-recorded bassists in history, recently shared her top 10 greatest recordings all time (no easy feat, considering she’s got over 10,000 sessions under her belt) with MusicRadar.com.
“This is a terrific batch of songs, but I might have a whole different list next week,” she told MusicRadar.com. “You know how it is: You turn on the radio and you hear something and you go, ‘Oh yeah! I played on that. That’s a good tune.’”
Among her selections is hit sensation “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” a track she recorded with Nancy Sinatra in 1968.
“Nancy liked two basses on her songs,” she told MusicRadar.com “That might’ve come from Billy Strange, who did the arrangement. But it worked. You needed a strong bottom end on a song like this. Boy, what a hit, huh? You couldn’t turn on the radio at one point without hearing ‘Boots.’”
