By this I mean the groups of musicians who were the session musicians on the recordings like the Funk Brothers, Booker T and the MGs, Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. Any others that should be recognized?

Bookert T. and The MGs is the one that comes to mind for me first off the bat. What about all the studio guys who played on the earlier country music recordings? I know a lot of those guys only played in the studio.

A large portion of Toto members played on Thriller, the best selling album of all time.

Hugh McCracken & Dave Spinozza.

I don't know if these guys were part of a studio band, but they did play together on Paul McCartney's "Ram" album, and probably some others.

And speaking of McCartney, the later-era Beatles was distinctly a studio band

If I'm not mistaken, one of those two (can't recall right now, but I think it might be Dave) played on solo albums by all four Beatles...one of three people who have.

The other two: Ringo Starr & Eric Clapton

Actually, Steely Dan was still a touring band then. Steely Dan didn't actually become a studio band until the Katy Lied album. By then Fagan-Becker had decided not to tour, and not to have a band, instead reliying on a diverse group of session musicians.

I think Charlie Daniels and Pete Drake played with these guys too on Bob Dylan's NASHVILLE SKYLINE and Ringo Starr's BEAUCOUPS OF BLUES.

These guys don't strictly meet the criteria for the thread- but, - a great bunch of studio musicians who just play in the NYC area - Great Caesar's Ghost - I'm listening to a smoking Mountain Jam from their One More Ride cd right now! - These guys can REALLY REALLLY play!!!!! Nobody covers the Brothers & The Grateful Dead better than GCG!!!!!!!

Dave Spinozza played on Paul's RAM, John's MIND GAMES, George's SOMEWHERE IN ENGLAND & Ringo's RINGO THE 4TH albums. (at least, and I think, this is off the top of my head...)

Nicky Hopkins also played on solo album by all four Beatles, and like Clapton & Starr (but not Spinozza) he had also played on a Beatles recording.
