    The Exciting Daly-Wilson Big Band LP (1972)

    Festival Records ‎

Probably the most well known Australian record by beat-diggers abroad. The Daly Wilson Big Band gained notoriety quickly due to the fact that Mobb Deep sampled drums off this record for the hip-hop anthem "Shook Ones pt. 2". The funky smashing drum break is to be found on the song "Dirty Feet". The track "In Necessity" was included on volume 8 of the "Dusty Fingers" series. Essential to every Aussie beat diggers collection. This was Daly Wilsons' only work to be released in the USA, with a slightly different cover, on Elephant Records.
