In Mozipedia (regarding "He Knows I’d Love To See Him"):
"Mary Margaret O'Hara added backing vocals while double bass was provided by revered session player Danny Thompson, formerly of Pentangle, though never credited on the accompanying single sleeve or any subsequent compilations."
This was subsequently corrected:
"Chris Laurence played string bass on Morrissey's track "He Knows I'd Love To See Him."
British bass player, born 4 Apr 1939 in Teignmouth, Devon, England. Don't confuse with his son Danny Thompson (3), a former drummer of Hawkwind nor Danny Ray Thompson, the saxophone and flute player, nor Danny Thompson (4), the drummer for Face To Face.
Daniel Henry Edward Thompson (born 4 April 1939) is an English multi-instrumentalist best known as a double bassist.
