ORCH5 sample The orchestra hit has been identified as a "hip hop cliché". In 1990, Musician magazine stated that Fairlight's ORCH5 sample was "the orchestral hit that was heard on every rap and techno-pop record of the early 1980s" . The voice was given the name ORCH5, and was possibly the first famous orchestra hit sample. The sound was a low-resolution, eight-bit digital sample from a recording of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite – specifically, the chord that opens the "Infernal.
There was a unique and broad appeal to Bobby Jones and he was a man with great personal style. Alistair Cooke said On both sides of the Atlantic, he was idolized and by people who knew no golf, for his God-given combination of flashing good looks, wry humor and unflagging modesty. He became, and remained till the day of his death, the First Gentleman of golf. According to Herbert Warren Wind, There was something about him – how he looked and spoke and acted – that communicated itself to non-golfers as well as to golfers, and also to people in all walks of life
His first chart success came in 1957 with the R&B chart no. 1 hit "Farther Up the Road", which also reached n. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and followed it up with a series of hits on the R&B chart including "Little Boy Blue" (1958). Bland's craft was most clearly heard on a series of early 1960's releases including "Cry Cry Cry", "I Pity The Fool" - an R&B chart n. in 1961 - and "Turn On Your Love Light", which became a much covered standard.
And his first for ABC-Dunhill in 1973 after more than two decades with Duke (Robey's still represented, though, under his songwriting alias of Deadric Malone on four cuts, including the album's biggest hit, "This Time I'm Gone for Good"). Producer Steve Barri contemporized Bland by having him cover Leon Russell's "Help Me Make It Through the Day," Luther Ingram's "(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to Be Right," and Gladys Knight & the Pips' "I've Got to Use My Imagination.
