It's A New Day/ I Turn My Back On Love
7" Vinyl Single Record
The Skull Snaps evolved from an earlier R&B outfit known as The Diplomats, taking their name from a comment by Lloyd Price to the effect of "your music is so powerful it just cracks people's skull, man," a statement that was true in '73 and remains truth to this day. Just as the group started to get spins and attention on the "It's A New Day" single, the GSF imprint closed their doors and the Skull Snaps went on to languish in obscurity. Or, they would have if not for the beat laid down by drummer George Bragg that turned "It's A New Day" into one of the most sampled cuts in history having been used by Eric B & Rakim, ODB, Digable Planets on through to DJ Shadow and The Prodigy. Here, "It's A New Day" is backed with the less sampled (but perhaps you've heard it on Main Source's "Just Hangin' Out) "I Turn My Back On Love" presented for the first time ever on lavender 7" vinyl.
