CUT CHEMIST VS. CUT CHEMIST: WHICH FLIP IS BETTER?

Pleasure Web: Music Man Pts. 1 and 2
From 7″ (Eastbound, 1973). Also on Super Breaks 3

Jurassic 5: Jayou
From Jurassic 5 EP (Interscope, 1997)

Jurassic 5: Concrete and Clay
From Quality Control (Interscope, 2000)

Similar to the last “Which flip is better?” post, this one features a single producer who has used the same sample source twice for two different songs.

The source here is one of the more obscure 45s on Eastbound: “Music Man Pt. 1 and 2” by Pleasure Web. Personally, I couldn’t find much on the artist at all; if anyone knows some details, illuminate the rest of us.

Cut first used “Part 2” of the song for “Jayou,” arguably the most distinctive cut off the first Jurassic 5 EP from ’97. Then, he revisited the same 7″ and flipped “Part 1” for “Concrete and Clay” which first appeared on the “Improvise” EP of 1999 (and was later released on the full-length Quality Control album). Personally, I was always more partial to “Concrete and Clay” myself though “Jayou” had more buzz going. It’s hard to choose b/t the different parts of “Music Man” though given that they’re practically two different songs. My inclination is to go with Part 1 simply b/c I like it with lyrics better but it’s hard to front on the flute flavor of its sibling.
