OK, so someone posted this fabulous YouTube clip recently of every sample used in Paul’s Boutique (though I think a few are missing), and I of course just had to track down each and every sample, 99 in all. I already had about 60 of the tracks, but the hunt for the remainder has been fun, nevertheless. And you, my dear listener, are the one’s to benefit from this scavenger hunt. This is why you tune in, right? Right.
Anyway, I start the second hour with eight tracks used to sample “Egg Man” and then follow it up with said Beastie Boys track. I’ll be doing this for each of the tracks on this classic LP in the weeks to come. Tune in and enjoy.
I also took this holiday show to share some longer and stranger tracks as you can see from the playlist below. I picked up a couple of James Brown/JBs LPs this past week, as well as some 80s and 90s punk 7″s . I also close out the show with a few live cuts that I think are worthy for your ears. If you’re playing the LDB game (and why would you?) then you better stop following the Abbey Lincoln track. Then again, the Lou Rawls version is my favorite LDB produced.
Happy holidaze and Treason’s Greetings to you all.
