Ode to the Amen Break

On the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour this week, we have a set of songs that I have hand-picked from my heaviest rotations in the past year, followed by
the fascinating tale of The Most Sampled Loop in Music History by Great Big Story. After that, we hear another set of songs that each sound pretty different, but are all examples of what can come of the “most sampled loop in music history”, the Amen Break.
