Madlib Samples #21: Doris – Did You Give the World Some Love Today Baby (1970, EMI)

Doris Svennson is a Swedish singer known for her lone solo album Did You Give the World Some Love Today Baby, an eclectic pop, rock and funk album released in 1970. It is considered as a rarity among record collectors and connoisseurs. Most of the material recorded on this album was written and arranged by TV producer, jazz-pianist, composer, Berndt Egerbladh who with Doris created some exciting and exceptionally produced music. Examples of this include the self-titled track, a sweet track including rock-inspired grooves as well as Doris’ powerful vocal performance that steals the show.

Madlib was the one to discover and sample another track, however. With its incredibly groovy bassline that gives out a bit of a spooky vibe, “You Never Come Closer” is the highlight of the whole record for me. With stunning guitar leads and a fierce energy to it, this highlight was perfect for Madlib to sample of his Quasimoto track “Closer” featuring Madvillain (MF DOOM). It’s of Quasimoto’s 2005 album The Further Adventures of Lord Quas, released on Stones Throw Records, and it gives out a dark, eerie tone, sampling those deep basslines and Doris’ off-kilter vocals. The fuzzy guitars are sampled and amplified on “Closer,” and Lord Quas and MF DOOM’s flows are villainous to say the least. It is an exceptionally produced track that highlights Madlib’s true talent of sampling.
