He has the "I've had extensive plastic surgery" look. Not MJ bad, but like Liz in the 90's bad.

This may be even whiter than the Thick as a Brick 8-bit post, but Jazz has benefited more from hip hop than anything else in the last 25 years.

A few have shown up on my pandora station, but google mostly brings me hip hop featuring jazz, or downtempo acid jazz trip hop ... stuff. All of which I like, but it's not what I'm talking about. The first time I heard about it was a group out of New Orleans that played Dixieland instruments but with big hip hop beats and bass lines.

Medeski Martin and Wood do some stuff that's kind of in that vein, but maybe is more expanding on the jazz that influenced hip hop rather than that influence running back the other way.

I only learned about that guy's 'rest of the story' when it floated around the internet in the run up to the Burns Vietnam documentary.

The Songfacts entry for that song is pretty amusing too.
I always thought the priest on the cover was chained by a demon for being a 'pedophile priest'. "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." -Matthew 18:6 (KJV)Joseph - Hawaii

Question: Around about 10 years ago I picked up a copy of the 'Wolverine Blues' album. In the years following it has enjoyed many a spin in my CD player as one of my favourite albums, however I was REALLY shocked to discover recently that MY version of the album with it's selection of movie samples is pretty rare due to your concern at a potential lawsuit coming out of Hollywood. Personally I can't imagine 'Rotten Soil' WITHOUT the the 'Flatliners' sample "Wake up you little shit, you got company!" at the beginning of each chorus.

Anyway, my question is just how many CDs were pressed WITH the vocal samples?

Answer: To answer your question, I think about 3000 CDs from memory came out like that, in the UK edition, and none came out in the USA Columbia/Earache edition.It was because the album was due for a major-label release that all samples had to be removed.Sony insisted on it, and myself and the band learned a valuable lesson in the copyrights of movie dialogue.
