Yo! Thanks for the votes and big ups to everyone who took part!
Not going to bother with a special rule this week, just going to keep it simple. However if you have access to a sampler, try to make as much use of it as possible. Vocals also encouraged.
1. Use at least one of the provided samples.
2. Outside everything is allowed.
3. Time limit: 2:00. (no disqualification if it exceeds this, but try to keep them fairly short so it doesn't take people ages to listen to all of the entries)
Samples are here: http://www27.zippysh...67703/file.html
All samples are ripped off records (except the last 2 breaks) so apologies if quality is bad, some are very old. Not necessarily a bad thing if you like it gritty though.
1. Randy Crawford - Windsong
2. Quincy Jones - Mellow Madness
3. Van Morrison - Rave on John Donne
4. Tom Waits - Somewhere
5. Rachaminov's Prelude no. 2 Op. 3
6. Joe Jackson - We The Cats (Shall Hep Ya)
7. Jefferson Starship - Sweeter Than Honey
8. Joe Jackson - How Long Must I Wait for You
9. "Unknown - Drum Skit 3" (off a compilation, would be cool if someone could ID this)
10. Jack Arel - Psychedelic Portrait
