Has anyone read these books? I keep thinking of them as I'm digging to find where Madlib's samples come from. When I read them, I was turned unto some cool stuff. Madlib has me digging for Lord Buckley the same way RE/Search had me digging for Ken Nordine.


People don't want us to put "on blast" producers samples, but I'm hopefule there is still a ton out there to be discovered.

i have a VHS tape that's supposed to train people in dealing with teaching deaf people that i took from my last job...
and yeah, there's a shitload of usable stuff on it. even the cheesy stock music they use is cool and sample-able because it's got that nostalgic quality of elevator music from the '80s. so yeah, i always look for samples in everything.
