      Kalifornia by Above the Law? I thought that was a straight sample of Morris Day's "Gigolos Get Lonely Too" Did I miss something?

      I'm glad you're doin this man. My little cousin, who like all little dudes nowadays, wants to be a rapper/producer. I keep tellin him to dig back to where it all started. He's always shocked to that certain songs were sampled. You even showed me a few(I woulda got to'em eventually, lol). Keep doin your thing man. The Kids need it. We as a people are to seperated from the funk of instruments.

      P.S. I was startin to think that I was the only audiophile left in the world. It's nice to know you exist.

      Peace man

      Funktual, loving the lessons bruv. Some eye openers for me and I'm a soul/funk/break fan all the way from Nottingham, England. But hey you forgot Spoonie Gee - 'You ain't just a fool' as a sample for the Honey Drippers - 'Impeach The President'. Peace
