sample from 'for a few dollars more'

Post by andyd » Fri Sep 02, 2011 5:16 pm

I'm in a rock band and we have used the pocket watch sample on the beginning of a track which we intend to release on an album.
The sample from the 'for a few dollars more' is used to set the tone of the song using maybe 15 secs before the original music kicks in. The sample is again used at the fade out of the tune.
So, do i need to get clearance and if so what's the best way to do it?
If we go ahead, what is the worst case scenario..
We could release the track without it but it sets the song up really well but is not a feature
please help
