  3. *sigh* my last comment was deleted. Just wanted to pop in and say that this is pretty much all taken from the list we’ve been making over at the-breaks and If you’re going to just post other peoples’ lists, you may as well get them right:

    Track 1
    7:25 – Human Egg – Love Like This (Human Egg)

    Track 3
    0:00 – Inspector Clouseau – L’Automne from Teenage Troupeau Bleu
    3:00 – William Shatner – Lux æterna from Lux æterna

  4. A song is missing from Track 1.

    5:23-5:33 – Calvin Keys “Shawn-Neeq” from Shawn-Neeq (Black Jazz Records, 1971)

    It’s played very briefly, but it’s a terrific, mellow track that’s well worth including in the tracklist.

  7. @Mr. Attention YO! Thanks for that one! Been chasing that little gem for quite some time now! Finally got it! One down and a bunch more to go. An other reason Madlib is one of the greatest. He def played a big part in my delving into the abyss of music. Like a brick tied to my feet.

  8. Wow, Madlib is a genius! I wish i could personally thank him for this collection of GEMS. This album has inspired me to search deeper into the realm of jazz/funk/soul.

  9. [...] that calming/relaxing listening experience. I hadn’t heard of this group before listening to Madlib’s Mind Fusion Volume 2 which I’d highly recommend finding if you can. I know by now it sounds like I get way too [...]
