    The first 6 seconds of drums. On nearly every Hip-Hop album ever.

    Marlena Shaw – Woman of The Ghetto (Live) as sampled on Blueboy’s “Remember Me”

    Corking example. The original is a 10-minute epic describing a mother’s descent into poverty and prostitution, the Blueboy tune is background music for a wine bar.

    The Winstons – Amen Brother

    Perhaps the most influential sample ever and i reckon most people who have heard it wont know where it came from.

    Start! is a different bassline from Taxman. There’s a extra note at the end of the riff 😉

    Special mention must go to “When the levee breaks” by zep. That drum pattern is everywhere.
    edit. Beaten to it.

    I like “Amen Brother” but there’s not much to the tune apart from the monster drums!

    Bit like this oddity. I wonder how many people listened to the original compared to De La Soul, Ultramagnetic, etc:

    I can’t really get into Nas, even though this album has great production it’s got the bleakest lyrics ever:

    Corking example. The original is a 10-minute epic describing a mother’s descent into poverty and prostitution, the Blueboy tune is background music for a wine bar.

    Being an anorak about it, it (the original) is about the plight and history of black mothers in America in general – hence “I am THE woman of the ghetto” and all that stuff about slave ships, lack of access to education as well as the drugs and prostitution bit. I agree that once you’ve heard that, the Blueboy thing is almost offensive in its chirpy popness.

    Paul’s Boutique must be the most diverse collection of sampling. Took me years to recognise Time by the Floyd in barrel of a gun.

    Many many many tunes owe themselves to that bit of drumming..

    I really like the Terry Callier sample in this

    Nowt wrong with being an anorak about it. I saw Marlena Shaw playing live the other year, she was ace and looked like she was really enjoying herself.

    Another example of a great tune where the sampling song (Moby) stripped out all the power of the original:

    Following from some comments in the James Gang thread, what are the best songs / pieces of music you know that are possibly as well / better known as a sample in someone else’s record?

    Starter for ten: Marlena Shaw – Woman of The Ghetto (Live) as sampled on Blueboy’s “Remember Me”

    Ini’s not opposed to a bit of borrowing himself though. 😉

    Cymande are fantastic. I was really surprised to find out they were British (well, their LP was, I think the members of the group came from all over). They were put together by the same bloke who discovered Status Quo.

    I’m not sure they’re better known on account of being sampled, although a few famous groups have used them.

    organic355: Very interesting. I had no idea it all came from that one “Amen break”….

    Premier Icon mboy
    Subscriber

    The Amen break is one of, if not the most used sample in history, it pretty much helped spawn the whole D&B/Jungle movement back in the early 90’s.

    Anyway… Here’s some more VERY sampled classics… Points win prizes people, so see if you can guess where else they’ve been sampled! No points if you have to google it or look on whosampled.com… 😉

    Much more interesting when the style of music is changed from the original.
