Mine’s on the 45…

Magic Moutain

So I take this medicine that kills my immune system, so I’m supposed to stay away from people who are sick, according to the doctor.  She says this knowing full well that I work at the same hospital as her, with the public. I’m just supposed to be the boy in the bubble and sequester myself. What about at home? So that’s supposed to be done at home too, but you don’t count on taking a cough full in the face by someone with “allergies” at 2:30 in the morning. Four days later, I get a super-cold x 10 with continual congestion and sleepiness. But once again, you get to profit from my maladies.

I retired to the music room, and took time to go through some of the 45s I have. Every time I go through them, im always surprised by a song that I had been looking for and didn’t know that I had, and just stuff that I had never heard before that was my type of sound. I found more than a few to last for a few post, so I’m just going to trickle them out.

The main song today, Magic Mountain by War, I had heard on Pandora and was instantly recognized as the sample used by De La Soul for Potholes in My Lawn. The song itself is nice, not just the sampled part. Of coursed I couldn’t find the album it’s on. Found every other War album for a dollar but not the one with it on there. Of course it wasn’t on an album, but it was the B side to Spill That Wine. Which was impossible to find as well. Until I got sick. So the lesson here is take Imuran to help you find that record you’re looking for.

lf lt’s Not De La Slow, Then lt’s Not WMRS (Sample Sunday)

Free Samples

I’m all sampled up, ready to kick a little knowledge to you. All of these samples are ones that I found that I have by accident. Just while listening to the album, I just heard something familiar, and it only took a minute of research to find out why. I’m starting things with a man whose very name is what were here to talk about.

A while back, my aunt gave me her record collection, and sometimes I go through it looking for people I know very little to nothing about. I ran up on Joe Sample. Ok, founder of the Jazz Crusaders, hard-bop pianist…I got nothing after that. Especially of his solo work. With 3 albums to pick from, I grabbed Rainbow Seeker first. The title cut was first, a funky fusion cut. Then up next was In All My Wildest Dreams, and I immediately know it was bit by De La Soul for De La Soul is Dead.  This is that “De La slow” cut that the WRMS DJ dedicates a song to the Bitties. It’s a nice, smoked out cut, made for the heads out there.

Butkus was Rocky’s bulldog. Personally, I’m with Eddie Murphy on Rocky. He still lost the fight, there are no moral victories in boxing. But that soundtrack? Bill Conti is the shit! This album has at least 57 samples to its credit, with the best being the reunited Black Star for Talib Kweli‘s Supreme SupremeThe sample is barely chopped, that’s how nice it is.

Grant Green is another king of samples, so the surprise wasn’t that I found one on The Final Comedown (which is a soundtrack, by the way), but that it was for Black Ego off of Digable Planets‘ severely underrated Blowout Comb.

And if you can find The Rubaiyat of Dorothy, snatch that up. Anywhere you drop the needle you have sample. Dorothy Ashby.s music is always so…lush is the word.Lush without having that smooth jazz kind of feeling to it. lt’s just music to dig to. That’s what l imagine Flying Lotus doing while listening to For Some We Loved.

Amplified Samples, Will Trample…


Cleared Samples

Sample Sunday, back in full effect! Sure, I’ve laid out plenty of sampled song since the last Sample Sunday, but this time, its by design.

I’m keeping this simple, selecting some pretty recognizable samples this time. There’s some Daft Punk, a couple for the Beastie Boys, Black SheepBlackStreet and a king of samples that’s been cut and chopped up over 120 times. If I can get my shit together, I’ll make another post of less recognizable samples next.
