First Drum Loop in the book "The Art of Digital Music"

Bernhard's big book informs:-

>Galuten. The Bee Gees' song "Stayin' Alive" used a loop of drums extracted
>from their song "Night Fever". It refers to an article in "Mix" of October

>Woman" and Barbra Sreisand's "I'm a Woman in Love"

I think Zappa used tape loops for the drums on "Ruben and the Jets".
That would be 1968,
difficult to confirm since the original drumming was replaced for the
cd issue.
