Have You Heard About this New Thing Called Sampling? (1988)

Its interesting to see artists air their opinions on what was then an art/style that was gaining momentum. I wonder how many of these artists opinions have changed on the subject?

  1. If you’re interested in this at all, check out the great PBS documentary “Copyright Criminals.” Not only does it cover both sides of the sampling debate, but there’s a great sub-story of Clyde Stubblefield. Clyde was James Brown’s drummer on several songs (including “Funky Drummer”). The film shows that “Funky Drummer” is one of the most sampled drum tracks of all time and yet the original performer (Stubblefield) cannot afford health insurance. Available on DVD and via Netflix.
