This review is from: Presents the Breaks (Audio CD)
Being a HUGE Eric B and Rakim fan, I went on a search for the samples they used in classics like Paid in Full, Let the Rythm Hit 'Em, etc., and I came across this cd...UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I always liked Eric B's music because it was so tight and 'funky'...I was a little surprised (and sad) to hear that he had simply lifted beats off old records and threw in a few sounds to make things more interesting; this cd has the beat from Paid in Full (Ashley's Roachclip by The Soul Searchers), Lyrics of Fury (Funky Drummer by James Brown), Musical Massacre (It's Just Begun by Jimmy Castor Bunch), plus others...these tunes were all done in the 60's-70's and offer a fresh (!) look on funk, especially for the youngsters who think that the Chili Peppers are funky.
Well worth the purchase for an historical listen into funky music and old breaks.
