Who played the bass line on “Ain’t Understanding Mellow”? Can’t confirm but I would guess Ronnie Baker, the main bass player for Gamble & Huff’s house band, MFSB since Gamble & Huff co-wrote the song with Jerry Butler.

I’m at work so I can’t read right now. The jukebox is my soundtrack. From the first moment of the Jerry Butler set, I knew this was a classic sound. I didn’t know the songs, but I know the sound, I know the voice, I know the combination.

My favorite right now is “Something in the Way (She Moves).” The vocals, the lyrics, the music. It moves me, makes me smile, makes me think, and feel.

“I Don’t Want to Hear It Anymore” is another standout. His voice sounds deeper on this track. Love the images and the sound. Baba, thanks for sharing Mr. Butler with me. This is definitely a soundtrack of life song. I know about walls that are much too thin and the things you hear through them.
