The Original Sample:
It’s been a while. It’s been an even longer while since we’ve done a write-up for WBS. But it’s long overdue and this week’s session deserves a write-up. I won’t say that the hiatus is because my new day job has me traveling 80% of the week. Nor will l say it’s because I broke my fibula — I can still click a mouse, right? And no, we’re not changing the site’s name to the Biweekly or Monthly Sessions. That’s just crazy talk. But really there’s no excuse. But I do miss digging through samples each week and hearing all the submissions from all the WBS participants all over the world. And from the concerned texts, emails, and messages I’ve received, I know that you guys miss it too. So let’s get back into it.
This week’s sample comes from The Grodeck Whipperjenny which was released in 1970. It’s an amazing LP which originated from a challenge by none other than James Brown. He told his arranger, David Matthews (Not Dave) to capitalize on the hippy psychedelic movement. So David went on to produce this amazing 8-track offering.
Also, after the jump, be sure to check out the new music from WBS Fam, The Beetz and PMBeatz.
