Who sampled blues
Posted on: Sunday, Dec 6, 2009
I just discovered an excellent site that allows users to upload details of songs that have been samples by other artists. Clearly all my faves are there – check out any by Isaac Hayes for example.
As well as a lot of well known ones there are 100s of new ones to me. Being a lover of blues, jazz, funk and soul along with more dance oriented modern genres and hip hop it was pretty obvious that I was going so search out some of the blues legends that have been sampled by other artists. Here are a few that I found..
Here’s Robert Johnson sampled – http://bit.ly/6U1hol
BB King – http://bit.ly/6oWDwJ
and here’s some great use of Albert King – http://bit.ly/4UOY1a
I was amazed to see that a Fatboy Slim classic used one of my personal fave breaks from Jack McDuff – http://bit.ly/8G60U1
and another big beat classic from Chemical Brothers using another Hammond guy Jimmy McGriff – http://bit.ly/7UwZFi
