Back in the late 1990’s Blue Note Records reconized it’s influence on hip hop and responded by creating the Rare Groove Series of cd releases. They’re all funky organ-driven albums from the late 1960’s, containing the classic breakbeats used as samples by A Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, Black Moon, Main Source, Pete Rock, Brand Nubian, J. Dilla, etc. When you hear producers talk about ‘crate digging,’ these are some of the records they were looking for.
