Thought I'd see if anyone was interested in this. I know there are loads of packages that have been doing the rounds for years already, but this one has some different stuff on it, and it is pretty well presented, too. As a fun aside, shall we see how many we can place?

I've added the tracks they became in square brackets:


01. Baraka - Sower Of Seeds [Midnight In A Perfect World]
02. Dennis Olivieri - I Cry In The Morning [Six Days]
03. (George Marsh - Interview On Percussion) [Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt]
04. Alan Hawkshaw - Countdown
05. Roy Wood - Get On Down Home
06. Ron Geesin - Slow Song
07. Sensations Fix - Strange About Your Hands [Mongrel... and ...Meets His Maker]
08. (Snippet From The Star Wars Holiday Special)
09. The Eclectic Mouse - Pre-Dawn Reprospective Chant
10. Chaffey College Jazz Ensemble - Imagination Flight [Changeling]
11. Stardrive - Stardrive
12. Flying Island - The Vision And The Voice [What Does Your Soul Look Like (Part 4)]
13. David T. Walker - Never Can Say Goodbye [Additionally Sampled for: Porn Theatre Ushers - Balloon Knots]
14. (Snippet From The Movie Prince Of Darkness) [** Transmission 1 and ** Transmission 2 and ** Transmission 3]
15. The Salvation Co - The Revival [Six Days]
16. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards - Drummer’s Salute [Six Days]
17. Leroy Vinnegar - Reservation [Reservation]
18. (Snippet From The Movie Jacobs Ladder) [Rabbit In Your Headlights [UNKLE]]
19. Marc Z - It's Easy [Blood On The Motorway]
20. Sensations Fix - She’s Gonna Grow On You [Walkie Talkie and She's Gonna Grow On You]
21. John Cage - In A landscape (For Harp)
22. Dexter Wansel - A Prophet Named KG [A Prophet Named KG]
23. AB Skhy - Trackin’ Shoes
24. Marcus - Million Grains Of Sand
25. The Stories - Brother Louie
26. The New Mastersounds - Drop It Down
27. The Daly Wilson Big Band - 2001: Space Odyssey [Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain]
28. BeBe K’Roche - Alone
29. Jo Ann Garrett - Walk On By [Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain] [Isaac Hayes Version Sampled for: Wu-Tang Clan - I Can't Go To Sleep and Notorious B.I.G. - Warning]
30. Ron Geesin - Concrete Line Up [Concrete Line Up]
31. Brother Jack McDuff - Jelly Jam
32. Los Incas - El Condor Pasa [You Can't Go Home Again*]
33. The Dave Pike Set - Ritmos Do Bahia
34. Tony Church & The Crusade - Love Trip
35. Giant Crab - The Answer Is No
36. Spindrift Libarate - With Cat like Tread


* Although I think that the Simon & Garfunkel version sounds like the more likely true source. Thoughts?


Much of this information is available on various Wikipedia pages, but NO CHEATING PLEASE. Use your own knowledge and music libraries to get these yourselves. Finally, feel free to place samples that have been used additionally by other artists. For example, at least one of these tracks has also been sampled by Boston hip-hop outfit Porn Theatre Ushers, and are therefore also mentioned in the above tracklist in brackets.

I once got very excited when covering a science class because they had a video to watch about respiration that was made in the 70s. The music in the background was I think that Imagination Flight track. Not one of the kids had even heard of DJ Shadow. I love it when you hear little snippets of stuff you know from hip-hop tracks. One of the best things about listening to Girl Talk I think :)

Sweet!
I found some collections of DJ Shadow "source material" on Soulseek a while back.

This looks like good collection

I've spent so many nights up 'til the early hours of the morning looking for Endtroducing samples on YouTube! Top stuff, chap!

Edit:

No Pekka Pohjola...? How're supposed to get the feel for Midnight In A Perfect World?

And I'm suprised this isn't on there.

Indeed. I remember watching Dead Calm years ago and getting excited at the 'come on now, the camera's rolling...' vocal sample used in a version of What Does Your Soul Look Like? No-one around me knew it or understood my little victory :)

I think the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards track is in Six Days, the secondary drums that come in later on were built from it as I recall.

16. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards - Drummer’s Salute (six days)
17. Leroy Vinnegar - Reservation (used in Unreal & be there)

Metallica "Orion" from Master of Puppets. The cello sound at the start of Orion is used at the start of The Numbers Song from Entroducing.

Aha! Royal Scots Dragoon is in Six Days, well spotted. I should have heard that myself, to be honest.

Excellent use of snares. I'll add all these to the opening post. Well done to you both.

Yeah, I think that's a pretty obvious one, though. Same as 'Love Suite' by Nirvana for 'Stem/Long Stem'.

Keep forgetting to grab this, downloading now....

I'm positive I once read an interview that names Los Incas El Condor Pasa as the version used on YCGHA, so I'm sure that's right enough. Also, The Giant Crab track near the end is from High Noon.

There are another two of these mixes as mentioned above, but I can only find a download link on Pearson Towers for the second and no tracklist at all. 2.5, which sounds like barrel scrapage, albeit interesting, is here.

I'd love to know if anyone anywhere ever found the huge break from the end of The Number Song. The first Shadow interview I ever saw he was talking about that particular sample and how he was sure it was on a record no-one else would ever find, which is a bold claim. Probably right though.

26. The New Mastersounds - Drop It Down

They're from leeds, and thoroughly modern, I presume this is something from his third album, which I don't have.

Interesting posts, guys.

Regarding samples no one else can find ... if ANYONE knows where the hell those really nice string sounds are from at the end of Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain, I would love to know. The ones which come in on about the six minute mark and continue playing right through until after all the drums have long faded out. On all the sample collections and lists I've ever found on Endtroducing, these are never mentioned, and they're probably my favourite sample on the album.

WHERE ARE THEY FROM?


EDIT: Also, given that on the site Jatt mentioned Part 1 only has up to about halfway through on the tracklist - and that I have seen this mix broken in two on other sites - I reckon the link in the first post and the tracklist I posted could be both one and two together. I think Part 2.5 would be the only one that isn't covered here.

Correct me if I am wrong, though.

i am sure you are right with the track listing from part 1, as the final track on there Spindrift Libarate i recognise.

oh and just listened to the (part 2.5) and damn short but i love this one, and those rare as fack drums used at the end of the number song are on there too damn nice.
the start is deffenetly thats original track used in Dark Days, i am sure there is a track listing for part 2 also on nachopancho

Those strings are very similar to some on the 'Heat' soundtrack, though I don't think it's actually taken from there. It's the first track ('Heat'), performed by the Kronos Quartet.

In fact, the drums in that segment of Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain remind me of the intro of the second track on the same album: - 'Always Forever Now' by U2/Brian Eno.

I love those two tracks - such an atmospheric start to a great soundtrack.

I get the feeling that you are right on both counts.

I imagine that the film Heat actually played quite a significant role in inspiring Shadow. It was released a year earlier than Endtroducing, and this is on the second disc of the Deluxe Edition version of the album. I think that with some EQ adjustments, pitch-shifting and some other minor processing, it would be very possible to get those string sounds from the first example you posted by the Kronos Quartet there.

Eep, I think you are right you know. Sorry folks, should've checked first.

2.5 is well worth the download - the aforementioned Number Song break tune is superb, as is This Time I'm Gonna Do It My Way. And the whole Jeremy Storch section.

Good stuff. :)

It's great what he's done with it.
