Could someone list the song snippets in this mix? There are few I recognize, but a good list would be perfect.

There's a lot on this, the 10:40-minute version -- it's a real tour de force I don't know a lot of them; here's the ones I pick up.

0:12 "Uh-oh the cuckoo clock kids, it's time to go" (Howdy Doody Show)

3:44 "Yes, yes, y'all" Beastie Boys

4:22 "You ruined my record man" "Earache My Eye" by Cheech and Chong

5:00 "Apache" by Sugar Hill Gang (congas, up to the "ho! ho!")

5:18 [guitar lick and organ] Crap. Don't know this one. Think it's Booker T and the MGs

5:48 "I got to be myself" Al Green?

6:36 [piano riff] from "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" by Isaac Hayes (piano riff, popularized by/sampled in "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos" by Public Enemy

Geez. I can see why this wasn't released due to copyright sample clearances.

Thanks Daniel.

Bit of a difference between 9 and 10 minutes (!)

The AOBTD B-Boy 'Dusted' version did appear on a Basic Beats sampler. I believe it was a promo, however, so maybe it was held back because of clearance issues.

The disco version is a pretty interesting artifact--seems to be a DJ-homemade version from around the time the record was made. It doesn't sound like it was made with a sampler, in other words--just two turntables and a microphone.

So here's what I picked up.

Mostly DJ-made sound effects, really in the first 1:30. It happens elsewhere.

2:00 The double-up beats around here are from "Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club

2:27 "You Haven't Done Nothin'" by Stevie Wonder

2:52 "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin

3:35 "One of These Nights" by the Eagles

4:11 something by the Doobie Brothers

4:28 don't know

4:58

5:13

5:22 "Breakfast in America" by Supertramp

5:31 "Play That Funky Music" by Wild Cherry

6:03 "Honky Tonk Woman" by the Rolling Stones

6:38 "Cocaine" by Eric Clapton

6:55 "Body Heat" by James Brown

7:12 "Pick up the Pieces" by the Average White Band

7:37

7:58 "Smoke on the Water" by Deep Purple

8:14 "Party Time" by the Fatback Band

8:20 Peter Gunn Theme

8:33 "Do Wah Diddy" by Manfred Mann Band [their version?]

Thank you Daniel -- seems my Best of the Doobies isn't on my iTunes. Was racking my brain...

Thanks for hipping me to the disco version, actually! I've been on that site before, but never downloaded that "disco" version -- thought it was just the Basic Beats thing I wrote about earlier in the thread.

B-Boy was released as a promo. B-side to WWRY by Rick Rubin on 12". One of the better mixes i think. Never heard the version this thread was oficially about. anyone can share or have link? would be apreciated. :)
