Kicking Jewelz Monday.

Here is the entire breakdown on the worlds most used drum break. It is called the Amen Break. The break dates back to over 40 years. The break is in a small piece of a song named Amen Brother and dates to 1969. It was dropped by a funk and soul band called "The Winston's". The Amen Brother song came on the B-side a song called "Color Him Father". Color Him Father went on to win a Grammy Award and blew up the band as the track was one of the best 100 tracks of 1969. Although this was the track that popularized the band, it is the B-side that we are still talking about. Check this entire footage. It's been viewed over 1 million times for good reason. Enjoy!
