Amen archaeology

Robin the Fog of Ghosts of Bush / Torridon Gate renown did a recent Radio 4 report on the Amen Break and the fundraising campaign for ex-Winstons

In Robin's blogpost , he notes that

"Online sampling database ‘Who Sampled‘ lists over 1,500 individual tracks that have “officially” used ‘Amen Brother’ in whole or part, but as someone with a personal collection of amen-sampling tracks in the hundreds (at least), I would wager that’s a conservative estimate – it could be two or even three times that figure. And the original band never saw a bean. A worthy cause indeed."

 Robin also includes a "slightly truncated" transcript of his interview with Nate Harrison, who made a documentary about the Amen Break
