De La Soul - Jenifer Taught Me / Maggie Thrett - Soupy

Written by  | 08 September 2015

The next forthcoming release on the Originals label takes us back to the late eighties with this aptly daisy aged ispired release featuring a tune from De La Soul's classic debut album. Jenifer Taught Me has never been released as a 45 so I'm sure it will be a welcome addition to any serious collectors arsenal. It's an odd choice of tune from the first album, and is sounding a little dated but I'm happy that the label didn't go for one of the usual tried and tested picks off Three Feet High And Rising.

Keeping in line with the previous releases in the Originals series, the flip side showcases the original sample source from Maggie Threft. I think this tune might have a bit more traction with the deejays as it holds up quite well. It's fun and bouncy - and whilst it has already seen two releases on 45 (The most recent also being a De Le Soul inpired bootleg) both are pretty hard to come by, so this should make collectors happy. This rap 45 will be released late September through all the usual record outlets.
