Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt explains how he lusted for a Fender Jazz bass guitar that David Gilmour owned, and on his wedding day (to Richard Wright’s daughter, by the way), Gilmour gave it to him. He then plays some of his favorite disco bass lines.

On this day in music history: March 1, 1980 - “And The Beat Goes On” by The Whispers hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 5 weeks, topping the Club Play chart for 2 weeks on February 23, 1980, and also peaking at #19 on the Hot 100 on April 12, 1980. Written by Leon Sylvers III, Stephen Shockley, and William Shelby, it is the first R&B chart topper for the Los Angeles, CA vocal quintet fronted by twin brothers Walter and Wallace “Scotty” Scott. After recording three albums for Dick Griffey’s Solar Records (formerly Soul Train Records before 1978), The Whispers will be paired with songwriter, producer and musician Leon Sylvers III, having recently left his own family group The Sylvers. Recorded at Sound Masters in Los Angeles in the late Summer of 1979, “And The Beat Goes On” will be the first single released from the group’s self-titled ninth studio album in December of 1979. An instant smash on R&B radio and a club classic, it will give the group their long awaited breakthrough after recording and performing together since 1964 with only modest chart success and sales. The huge success of “And The Beat” will drive sales of their self-titled ninth album to Platinum status in the US. “And The Beat Goes On” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
