Diggin’ In The Crates pt.13 – Beastie Boys Special


For the 13th installment of diggin’ in the crates, I have decided to select tracks that have been sampled by the Beastie Boys over the years. I’ll stick up a bit of info about the track and artist, and then you can work out which Beasties track sampled it!

The Blues Project – Flute Thing   ysi    zshare
The Blues Project formed in the mid 60’s in New York. Their sound was a mix of psych rock, blues, jazz and folk-rock. This track is taken from their 1966 album, “Projections From The Past”.

Bromberg started as a session musician in the mid 60s, playing alongside artists such as Bob Dylan and Jerry Jeff Walker. In the early 70’s he went on to front his own band, he went on to release albums through the 70’s and into the early 80’s. This track is taken from his 1972 album, “Demon in Disguise” .

The Eagles – Those Shoes    ysi    zshare
We all know about the Eagles, so no real need to go on about them. This track is taken from the follow up album to their massively successful “Hotel California” album, the 1979 album “The Long Run” .

Nugent started his career as part of the 60s rock band The Amboy Dukes, but by the early 70s he had left to go solo. This track is taken from his most successful solo album, the 1977 “Cat Scratch Fever” .
