What's On Your Desktop - Samuel Weinstein Part Deux

David Axelrod - Songs of Experience

Another edition of what's on my desktop. This dandy of a record came out in 1969. David Axelrod was a record producer for Capitol Records who produced people like Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls. Yes, THE Lou Rawls. Axelrod's music is kinda loungy but his music contains orchestrations with fatback drums. Pretty much a trademark of Mr. Axelrod. A lot of his music was based on his use of Cocaine, but it is brooding thinking man's music. This particular album has the sample Ultramagnetic used for their 1996 song, Industry is Wack. If you are interested check out the song Divine Image for some monster drums with a sinister sounding theme.

Here is a website devoted to Mr. Axelrod. If you hear the sound samples that the site has, you may hear a few familiar tunes.

Awwwwwww Shucky Ducky...
