This week’s sample is Telegram from Eleanore Mills’ super rare 1974 album, “This is Eleanore Mills”. I believe it may have been her one and only record release, which is a surprise – she’s an amazing artist and its a solid album with dope string arrangements and amazing background vocals. And great song concepts e.g. New boyfriend breaks up with her via telegram right when she was falling for him (“Just when we got started, we parted / just when love mattered, love shattered”). Although obscure, she was Norman Conner’s protege and even appeared on his Romantic Journey LP. Eleanore Mills is the epitome of indie soul during the 1970s. A great find if you stumble upon this gem.

As we close this year, we just want to give another shout out to all the participants (new and old) and the listeners who tune in each week. Also, big ups to Sideways who hasn’t taken a week off this year. He’s participated in every beat session.

Next week, we plan to pay tribute to the late 70s/80s songstress, Teena Marie. She died yesterday of natural causes. Its only fitting that we pay tribute as we did with Isaac Hayes when he died last year. Lady T, RIP.

peace, illa

    Happy Holidays!

    Big thanks to everybody who appreciated the work I put in here in WBS. I’m new to the sampling production game (ask Chrizo; he taught me), so I really am thankful for the learning experience you all guys have given me through WBS. I consider each and every one of you as my mentors. Each beat session is truly exciting for me. Let’s all keep the dopeness up all the way to a million hits (and more)!

    And here’s to a happy new year for us all and our families! Peace!
