I guess I have a remastered version then because its audible to me, but I was thinking more about Traced In Air anyway.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

I believe Drama is an excellent album, but for some reason I can't remember any melodies from it, any bass/guitar/keys lines from it, etc. Dunno why is that. So I can't remember how the bass playing is on it. But anything Chris Squire did with Yes in that decade is fantastic.

Magma, of course; all their bass players were great and did a lot for the sound. Here an example with Jannick Top on bass:


Kraan too, of course. Helmut Hattler is a bass player with an unmistakable style. Here an example:


Guru Guru also always had prominent bass, sometimes played by Helmut Hatttler. Since Hattler really deserves more attention, here a Guru Guru example with him on bass.

Good stuff. Actually the first time I've heard that track. Could never bring myself to buy it but perhaps I will now.
