DJ Shadow is in Milwaukee this Friday night, and all this week on the Seven O'Clock Sample we are exploring the records that Shadow has sampled. In 2002, Shadow released the album THE PRIVATE PRESS. This record featured the single "Six Days". The song's music video was directed by Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai. It features actor Chang Chen of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame.
The main vocals of the song are sampled from the 1971 song "Six Day War" by British band Colonel Bagshot, with some riffs taken from the 1970 song "I Cry in the Morning" by American singer Dennis Olivieri. Brian Farrell of Colonel Bagshot and Olivieri are both given songwriting credits on the track.
Here is Oliveri's track "I Cry In The Morning"
