Whilst we're on the subject of Beatles sampling, Conn6or mentioned the EBW logo coming from George Harrison's Electronic Sound album in this thread. But did anyone mention that the Chems sampled music from that album as well? As per WhoSampled:

The noise at 5.44 on It Doesn't Matter


Is at 19.57 on No Time Or Space:


And it seems Tom Rowlands actually wrote a Forward/essay in the CD booklet when the album was re-released in 2014, as per this article

Or


Oh, by the way, perhaps it's common knowledge already but isn't that sound at 7:53 used in Dig Your Own Hole (title track) at 2:44?

I'm kind of confused, is this thread about samples used by The Chemical Brothers or samples in general?

If it's the second one, I found this while digging around:


The part that begins at 0:30 sounds a lot like Dig Your Own Hole.

Seems the chems sampled more of "Weekend" for the live version! (even went as far to vocode the vocal!)

And I'm not the one I was back then, no, no, no, no!!
One thing I can't take is to sit home all alone!!
Do what you like, my dear, but I'm not staying home!!

Csar's Sympathy For The Devil spotting in Chemical Spotting reminded me that if this here thing is true/definitive proof about Norwegian Wood...

Here you go :)

...then the Reel live gives you The Beatles and The Stones. Are The Chems having a bit of a laugh?

I'm kind of confused, is this thread about samples used by The Chemical Brothers or samples in general?
I started it as a samples-in-general thing but it has kinda morphed into a Chemical samples thing. Natural bias perhaps. Someone feel free to drag it away from the Chems again.

anyone ever noticed that the cymbol crash at the end of leave home (sans birds chirping) is in a majority of songs pre-push the button.

I think we need to identify the type of bird first. Maybe that’ll help locate the source. (2023 after bugging a bird watching forum for months, we’ll find out it’s a common bird in Argentina, then realize it’s from an Argentinian psychedelic band.)

Has anyone located the vocal samples used for EOD live?

You mean the "I can't take the heartbreak of you leaving me again" bits?
Same source as the "find a friend to spend the weekend" sample on the record.

Jump to 0.22



Incidentally the "tonight it's party time" bit is probably the best known sample on this record, even though the Chems haven't used it. The track has been sampled a LOT in the past, especially the early to mid 90's.

I also wonder if the "well well well" at the begininng may have been inspiration for Armand van Helden's "My My My".

^Scrap that. My My My directly samples a guy called Gary Wright.
The vocals are male (and pitched up)! This has nothing to do with the Chems now. I'm just rambling...
