Is this bass in tune?

Hey guys I've been recording my friend playing his bass for a track. I recorded him maybe 2 weeks ago, but today he told me his bass has gone in for work because there is something wrong with the tuning heads on the E and A string - causing these strings to go out of tune very quickly. He told me to check the recording to see if it was in tune. But to be honest my ears aren't so good at that sort of thing - I am just the monkey that hits the record button.

Please could someone tell me whether this bass recording is in tune? It would help me so much. Here is the link: Bass recording



Thank you so much for your help in advance.

sounds alright to me, but it's sort of hard to tell without other melodic instruments under/over it. But yeah, sounds good.

Thanks so much for listening. I put the electric guitar back into the recording so you could tell more easily if the bass is in or out of tune. If you have time, please take a listen to this version, and tell me if you are the sure the bass is in tune or not:

Here it is: Bass with electric guitar
