Bob James On Biz Markie & “Take Me To The Mardi Gras”

August 2, 2010

A quick warning: Don’t even bother going further unless you have a serious chunk of time to dedicate to viewing. This is going to take a while.

Bob James explains how his thoughts about sampling have changed over the years while offering insight into the making of “Take Me To The Mardi Gras” and refuting Biz Markie’s famous claim of owning a copy of the song that does not contain bells. James also discusses defective master tapes, transferring the original master recordings, and it’s impossible that Biz Markie could have a copy of the original master recordings.

On “Take Me To The Mardi Gras” without bells:

There was no reason in the world that we would have ever made a version of that song without the cowbell in it. We just wouldn’t have done that.

To Biz Markie:

Telling people that you got a hold of my multi-tracks. I don’t think so. Wanna meet face to face and really check it out?

[Thanks Hankyu!]

More after the break!
