You know, as a musician, and especially a bass player at heart, I just constantly analyze all music that I hear. There are so many great bass tones out there that have been recorded, but it's funny that I was thinking about the Boston bass tone today when I heard them on the radio. The bass tone on those albums is just amazing in the mix. It is super punchy, has tons of bass without being over bearing, and just has such a nice compression to it. It just sits in the mix perfectly. It is without a doubt one of my favorite bass tones of all time. I have looked for some isolated bass tones from them before, but this is the first time I have ever found one, and it was by accident. Anyways, once again.....what a great freakin' bass tone, man. Oh yeah, and the playing? Fuhget about it!! Killer!!

You reckon' that Scholz just ran that bass direct and compressed it just perfectly? That's my guess.
