The Winstons - Amen Brother is the world's most sampled break

it's drumbreak was created by Gregory Coleman, who never received any royalties for the sampeling of his beats and died broke and homeless a few years ago...

Now there's a fundraiser for one of the surviving creators of this song, Richard L Spencer:

Amen Break is the world's most sampled 6 second drum loop. It was recorded in 1969 in Washington, D.C. by the funk and soul group The Winstons and started appearing in the hip hop scene 20 years later in the shape of a sample. Picked up once again by the club scene in the UK in the 1990's, the Amen Break drum loop laid a foundation to genres such as jungle, drum'n'bass and breakbeat.
