    and does anyone have THIS one????

    yep, its the one with "get thy bearings", green cover with some flower on it. only good donovan record imo...there are some cool coverversions of "hurdy gurdy" floating around though

    to clarify: when Biz said Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man he meant the song and not get thy bearings. Supposedly there is a version of the title track with drums on the intro and not the obvious dollar-bin common album everyone should already have.

    whatever rookie... phone call or not... im still saddened by your lack of big dog skills during those years... its just not the same feeling i once had for you...

    i guess i only have jeff to look up to now...

    This foll had an og Manzel Midnight theme 45 GLUED on top of a random 12" record so he could cut with it!

    hmm, i got a copy that was glued to a 12". I say "was" because the artist/song info was blacked out and I ripped it off the 12 before listening Still worth the 50 cents

    aight, already thought that would be too obvious. didnt know there was a version with extra drums. however, over here in europe, even the album is not seen often. thanx for droppin knowledge on a lil dude!!!

    barring any petulence from the start-ups, I thought so too

    to everyone who knows our newly annointed soulstrut hero... how'd you meet the biz?

  • I could just imagine a crowd chasing a young unknown biz down the street.

    And now guess what they caught...

    That totally reminded me of the part of the vapors video where he's tring to be down and get's dismissed with the food stamp on his hat. I should make BIZ hats with a food stamp on the visor.

    One time when Biz and Kane were in town way back in the late 80's, I went up to the hotel to meet with them and I don't know what the situation was but when I rolled up Cool V was getting his ass kicked by a few of our local BGD members. Then out of no where comes Biz with a 2x4 and in one solid fluid motion whops the three guys in the head and layed them out! Then he told me a story about some guys in VA cahsing him after a gig and shooting at him and he ended up getting away. Then he said the next day he was going through the crate he had next to him in the car and there was a bullet that traveled half way through the records and then stopped! He said his records saved his life.

    Chan, that sounds just like a CLASSIC Biz boast! That's exactly the kind of stuff he says, just ridiculous stuff that you know damn well ain't true. What's ill is when some of that stuff actually DOES turn out to be true! You just never know with this guy.

    This thread is too damn dope. I've got to get it going again!

    So one day Biz and I are talkin on the phone and I tell him I really like the Grand Daddy I.U. LP "Smooth Assassin." Biz starts telling me all kinds of stories about making the album. My favorite was when he said "You know Mary J. Blige was singin' on sugar free right?" "I used to go pick her up in the projects in New Jersey, I'm the one that got her the deal with MCA."

    Hillarious. Dude needs to write an autobiography.

  • Check out some of Biz's legal papers I dug up from the "alone again" era. My man stays in financial flux.

    love him like a mentally challenged brother.

    Yeah, I mean, what the fuck?

    Those mp3s are good and all that, but the one I really want to hear is the one Paul Nice did using "Falling In Love" by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, which I remember reading Paul himself describe as being like "Just A Friend Pt.2" in an interview. I always had a soft spot for that tune, and you could probably make a great beat with it. There was a "Weekend Warriors Unreleased" EP doing the rounds a while ago that had one or two of those tracks on it, but no sign of that Paul Nice joint.
