EQ instruments out of music

I understand that Kanye EQ'd the Rick James & James Brown samples to extract the vocal from the music on "Runaway" and on "Watch the Throne". I wanted to ask if Mike Dean or Anthony Dawson or anybody can help point me with this. I have this vocal I want to sample but it has music and every time I try to EQ the vocal it sounds like its underwater or the instruments sound really bright. What can I do? Any help would be great. Thanks

You can't completely isolate or "extract" a vocal by EQ'ing. The only way to get a truly isolated vocal from another recording is to have access to the original multi-track or A Cappella.

I just imagined all the multi-tracks from 50's and 60's music! Oh man that would be so awesome..

you may have better luck trying some M/S processing. i do tons of sampling and m/s techniques have become indispensable for me.
