MF DOOM - Operation: Doomsday [The Samples]



Good luck finding this album in its original pressing! 'Operation: Doomsday' became a favorite of mine some time around 2003 when I discovered DOOM's music. This album has some classics like 'Doomsday', 'Red & Gold' and the infamous 'Hey!' (remember when Talib Kweli said "I got chills when I heard how Doom flipped the Scooby Doo"... it was a reference to 'Hey!'). And really, who else but DOOM could put out an album that went from sampling Yusef Lateef, to Scooby-Doo and then Eric B. & Rakim: back-to-back-to-back! This sample set was really fun to complete, and I have to say it's perhaps the most enjoyable sample playlist of tracks I've ever compiled into a full-length. I know you'll dig this one... Enjoy:

  7. I am dying to know what song Doom sampled for "I Hear Voices" with the inst. version "Agrimony". I have a 50 second snippet of it and it sounds very much like Phillip Bailey from EArth, Wind & Fire. Someone please help in identifying this track!
