Demon/Harmless's BACKBEATS series #007: GIMME A BREAK

"One break coming up..."
Volume 007 in the Backbeats series, Gimme A Break - 70s Breakbeats & Future Samples, contains 18 songs that were later sampled in other songs.  In some cases, MANY other songs.  HERC used the fine site Who Sampled to look up how many songs sampled each of the tracks on this disc:

93Schoolboy CrushAverage White Band
53I Can't StopJohn Davis & The Monster Orchestra
3Are You My Woman (Tell Me So)The Chi-Lites
7Wikka Wrap*The Evasions

2Devil With The BustSound Experience
71Theme From The PlanetsDexter Wansel
3At Peace With WomanThe Jones Girls
6Hurry Up This Way AgainThe Stylistics
* this song sampled 5 other songs

That Chi-Lites track is a favorite and it would be easy for HERC to hate on the samplers but the song below from 2003 is one of HERC's faves.  (Ask his kids, they'll tell you - "Dad played it to pieces.")  It remains the first (and last) Beyoncé CD he has purchased.  Rich Harrison gets the credit for building the song around the sample.
