A Tribute to Bob James’ Nautilus: Compiled by Paul De Loecker

WhoSampled.com Blog

2014 marks the 40th Anniversary of Bob James‘ seminal CTI debut LP ‘One’. Little did James know at the time of release, that the album’s final track, a midtempo instrumental titled ‘Nautilus‘ would go on to become an unlikely hip hop classic and one of the most sampled records of all time. When friend of the site Paul De Loecker approached us with his tribute to this classic cut, a playlist of 15 of his favourite tracks to have sampled Nautilus accompanied by interview snippets from the sampling artists and James himself, we were happy to share this entertaining audio journey with you.
