"Consider the Source", "Who You Been Giving It Up To", and "This Feeling's Rated Extra".
With the awesome "I Want a Do Something Freaky to You" as famously used by Dr. Dre on "The Chronic". Great song!
! Their "Nuthin' But A G Thang" off the Chronic album marked the beginning of an era in hiphop and for the following years Dr. Dre reigned as the beatproducer supreme!
But don't put this album off as being just a world famous sample I just love the many aspects of this wonderful album...and I was happy to discover that the always critical AMG actually loves it too:
Released in 1975,
." A teen-age hip-hopper of 1993 might not have known the name Leon Haywood who is someone the hip-hopper's Baby Boomer parents were more likely to be familiar with but he/she no doubt knew Haywood's unforgettable melody from the Dre/Snoop single. Back in 1975, "Freaky" made Come and Get Yourself Some one of Haywood's best selling albums. "Freaky" and the title track were the album's biggest hits, although the rest of the material is also well worth hearing. Smooth, laid-back northern soul items like "Consider the Source" and "This Feeling's Rated Extra" appealed to Haywood's diehard fans, many of whom he had won over with his 1967 hit "It's Got to Be Mellow." But a tougher, less sleek approach prevails on "Who You Been Giving It up To," which recalls the Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing." Come and Get Yourself Some has been out of print since the '80s.
