Hank Shocklee was the man. No doubt.

*IS* the man - check out the movie "American Gangster", if you haven't. He did a lot of the soundtrack. Also, The RZA as an undercover cop posing as the junkie "Boogaloo" is a sight for sore eyes! :lol:

The link you provided lists four of his songs on the soundtrack. Five if you count Can't Truss It:

8 Public Enemy Can't Truss It
9 Hank Shocklee Checkin' Up On My Baby
10 Hank Shocklee Club Jam
11 Hank Shocklee Railroad
12 Hank Shocklee Nicky Barnes

More than one third of the soundtrack is in the neighborhood of "a lot".

Fair enough.

I watched a video of Shocklee at the Red Bull thing ages ago. Not sure if it's the same thing as the podcast you mentioned. Pretty entertaining.

When I've seen/heard him speak, he's managed a pretty good balance of self-confidence bordering on arrogance (justified, of course) with a desire to hype others into feeling that way about themselves and their own creations.

The Art Of Noise were brilliant and I don't care what anyone says. Horn was a pioneer of sampling and digital recording, even on mainstream projects such as Yes and ABC's Lexicon Of Love, he got into The Fairlight and PPG Wave computer very early. The early Sony UMATIC tape digital recordings of Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Propaganda, etc.

Another brilliant synth/sampling group from that time was Yello, Swiss visionaries and not just for 'Oh Yeah!' and 'The Race'.

Lee Perry was the first person to put out sample-based music.

In order for it to be the best album ever, it would first have to be the best PE album ever, which it is not even close to being.

Negativland - Escape from Noise.

even though they killed a perfectly good Punk rock record label by getting sued by U2 over illegal sample useage (not over this album in particular, but this one was their best imo)
