Tips for a record collection, with a spotlight on Kate Bush's auspicious 1978 debut LP The Kick Inside.
Zoe Ball explores the craft of music sampling, in which hip-hop, pop and rock acts create new tracks using bits and pieces of existing recordings. Practitioners have included Norman Cook, Moby, Eminem and Beyonce, while James Brown, Chic, the Turtles and Dido figure among the sampled acts. The programme deconstructs several big-hit examples of the genre, including the Verve's Bitter Sweet Symphony (from a version of the Rolling Stones' The Last Time), the Sugababes' Freak Like Me (Gary Numan's Are "Friends" Electric?) and Robbie Williams's Millennium (John Barry 's You Only Live Twice). With input from Moby, Gary Numan, Lulu, Guy Chambers, Tom Robinson , Basement Jaxx, Anne Dudley, Andrew Loog Oldham and drummer Clyde Stubblefield.
You may not know the name Clyde Stubblefield but you'll certainly have heard his work, for he's the most sampled drummer in the world after years of recording with James Brown. Yet Clyde has never received a credit or a penny in royalties from this new use of his beats. In this engrossing and smartly edited documentary, Zoe Ball (above) asks if sampling (in which artists lift snatches of music or voice through to entire songs and mesh them into a new track) is creative borrowing or blatant theft. Moby believes music belongs to the people hence it's all up for grabs by anyone. Gary Numan says having your music sampled is complimentary but artists deserve to be paid. Music journalist Danny Ecclestone makes the best point of all though: rock 'n' roll stole everything from the blues and country and never paid a penny. Do rich white pop acts really have any right to complain if a hip-hop artist borrows a riff or two? (Jane Anderson, radio editor)
