Played Like A Piano
So thinking of posse cuts, I was having a debate with myself as to whether "Piano" by Grandmaster Melle Mel and The Furious Five counted. I know- that IS a posse, but really, they are a rap group, right? So maybe it doesn't count. Still, this is rarely heard, and hard to find on vinyl. I only heard it on the radio once; Cold Crushin' Charlie Chase played it on WBLS in '91. I forget when his show was exactly, but I think it was briefly happening on Friday afternoons. There are some great punchlines dropped here (when I hear this song, I immediately turn 17 years younger and start acting out the parts) and Kid Capri provides the cuts lovely.
And while we are on the subject of getting played like a piano, let's not overlook King T's "Played Like A Piano" featuring Ice Cube and LA Breeze, over the Grover Washington, Jr. sample, one of the first records I ever got for free in the mail. You do NOT get records like this via UPS anymore, do you? Shit, I don't even answer the door when they ring.
