Info about vocal sampled on Omen

Post by Numanoid »

The prominent vocal sample used on Omen (I've seen the future, I can't afford it...) is lifted from ABC's 1984 "How to be a millionaire" single (http://www.discogs.com/release/94985). The chanting of "dollars, pounds" heard elsewhere in the Omen mixes is also culled from that ABC release. Maybe it would be an idea to include this information in the discography section on this site, as you already have listed info about the other samples used on that release?:

"Omen - Also hit the top 40...but only just. The flip side has starts with the sample "Take a Deep Breath...". This was sampled from their mothers relaxation tape...the tape that was to help their mother from smoking. Phil sneaked into her room and took the tape to sample."

Nothing about samples not credited will either be confirmed or denied by the moderators on this site...

Fair enough, I thought about it after seeing your posts and I guess it wouldn't be so smart to feature this kind of information on an offical website...
