Diggin In The Shoebox
After all these years, I have finally been able to burn some of the old tapes sitting in shoeboxes in my basement. It’s a slow process (for me) but I have a ton of good stuff for all of you and I’ll try to post a little each week. For today, I’m posting up some old Tribe Called Quest from their Low End Theory sessions. The quality of these tapes is not good after 15+ years so don’t complain about the sound.
Here’s the version of Scenario that I had from ‘91:
Also, you can get yet another version of Scenario @ Unkut with details of what was going on during these recording sessions:
And last but not least here’s the Georgie Porgie song featuring Brand Nubian that was rejected by their label, Jive. So they kept the same beat and re-recorded it as Show Business. In Check The Technique, I think Q-Tip explained that Grand Puba didn’t want to come back and re-record the song with a different topic.
