The album was entirely produced by J Dilla, who uses very few samples throughout the album, instead choosing to concoct synth-driven beats for the MCs to rhyme over. It is believed that the original version of 48 Hours was more sample based, and that this may have been a factor in it being rejected by MCA, due to sample clearances.

The album version of this sounds phenomenal. I play regularly and cant believe how good and fresh it still sounds today. What happens when the drum machine is accompanied by world class musos (and a dog).

Despite the thrill of owning a 12 or 7" pressing of this timeless composition, you can still rock a party with the album version (Costing between $1 and $5 in most American record shops). It's just that well-produced.

It may not sound like a normal Cat Stevens track, but Yusuf's experimentaion with Funky Electro is an absolute winner! Highly reccomended

Although this single did not come out until November 1977, the album which spawned this track (Izitso) was released April 1977 (some sources say May). Although 50% of the Proto-Electro of the 70's is an offshoot of Kraut-Rock turned Space-Disco, the other 50% is an offshoot of Funk-Jazz. Being Chick Corea (of Miles Davis's Bitches Brew album) is largely featured on this track, one can tie this to the Proto-Electro lineage that includes other Jazz luminaries as Herbie Hancock and Lionel Hampton, leading to Tyrone Brunson and Paul Hardcastle. In contrast to this track, the remainder of the album was backed by the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section.

As history goes, "Was Dog A Doughnut" is not recognized as one of the most important Electronic records ever made. People always give Kraftwerk's "Trans Europe Express" a name-check for that. But Cat Stevens did produce this track without hearing Kraftwerk. This could be the first Electronic record ever recorded and Cat Stevens was known as a Folk/Rock artist and not a forefather of Electronic Music. On this 1977 release we have the prototype electro track, one that pre-dates Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk and YMO. We have a timeless classic here, Moog eruptions and electronic drum programming which arrived 5 years prior to The Roland 808. We have the Dog Barks, which became the electro standard in 1982, we have Mantronix and Freddy Fresh, name-checking it, while Jellybean did his own cover version, yet people still do not know.....Get yourself the bonafied first electro track of all time. This is it.

Abandoned Electrical
Thanks for this part of History. I was searching it about this enigmatic track. It's "esoteric" from a folk/rock artist. I do understand a bit more now!

W.D.A Doughnut is absolutely a timeless classic. Frankies review is accurate, and he really should know the effect of that record on new york at that time... Regardless dear reader, DON'T do what i did and go and check out the Moroder one based on the comments above... I recognised 'son of my father' as a twee earworm... but who knows... maybe there's a diamond in the rough like this from Izitso. Sadly it is laughable glam rock tripe, as is the rest of the album.. Granted re kraftwerk and jj perrey, the rest are mainly classical artists trying to emulate oboes and clarinets. Wendy Carlos had some truly inspiring moments, but lots that weren't. bruce haack appears to have recorded all his stuff in a garden shed, so awful is the sound quality.

i beg to differ.kraftwerk are active since the beginning of the seventies, and the song "autobahn" is from 1974. and giorgio moroder's "son of my father" dates from 1972.electronic music in general existed long before this (and was also released on record).e.g.:wendy carlos - switched-on bach (1968)bruce haackraymond scottjean-jacques perreygershon kingsleydelia derbyshireoskar sala.....
