Miami Bass' Ten Best Producers and Musicians
2. Clay D
"He ended up going with Steve Alaimo and Ron and Howard Albert over at Audio Vision. But first, he was with me and Amos in the studio. He used to say, "Imma put my nine up your ass," and he was talking about his shoe, his size-nine shoe. It was a simpler, more peaceful time when bass ruled, and not fuckin' bullets. He produced a bunch of stuff, but I don't know how much credit he got. I liked him and his energy a lot."
1. Amos Larkins
"Amos was a young bass player and a producer that was involved with and started hanging around Henry Stone's TK Records studios right toward the end of that era. And he was there right when Henry started up F.H.L. Productions in the same warehouse right there in Hialeah at 495 SE 10th Court.
"He was a co-writer on Connie's 'Funky Little Beat.' He did some stuff with Luke that we were involved with. Luke used to bring guys to the studio to record, and we manufactured some records for him. But one time, Amos left Luke's name off a record, and I don't know how he got the number to the house phone, but he called and I picked up and he started saying, 'You motherfuckers, left off my motherfuckin'....' and I said 'Go fuck yourself!' and I hung up.
"He called right back all pissed off and I said, 'Don't call here talkin' shit to me. If you've got a problem, let's work it out and we ended up talkin' like gentlemen and I said that if the record sells well and we go to repress it I would make sure personally that it had his name on it. And I made sure his name got on there.
"So that was Amos Larkins."
