Jungle Brothers "J Beez Comin' Through (remix)" (1991)

I missed this twelve when it was originally released, and heard stories about how one of the beats on this record was insane. When Doug E. Fresh released his "Where's Da Party At?" single in '95, featuring a "jackin' for beats"-style cut, it had this 8-bar loop that was bananas. My friend that had heard the fabled JB's record confirmed that this was in fact ripped from the JB's record. That only intensified my hunt for the original. It took the re-releases of early Jungle Brothers records the last few years to finally track it down:

The "J Beez Comin' Through" remix is dope (despite the fact that the intro sounds kind of faded), adding a nice sax and extended intrumental segments. The gem on this for me will always be the bonus beat, however...the loop they use in conjunction with the classic break define "hype shit" to me. The original piano loop used in "J Beez Comin' Through" gets sprinkled in halfway through the bonus beats as well. It's short, and isn't a proper instrumental (for the original or the remix), but a classic moment for many. Includes the "J Beez Comin' Through" remix and Bonus Beats.

i was pissed as hell when i found out dje got this record before me - i just remember how this joint - remix bonus beats - blew up not a few chicago parties in the early-mid nineties - people would know it as soon as the loop dropped - the whole place would explode - classic, classic material -

Thanks for posting this - I remember hearing this remix on Wild Man Steve's WBAU show on Long Island when I was growing up, and was always bummed the album didn't include it.

FYI there are record skips around 1:41 and 3:55 of the remix.
