Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (Japanese version) ... CD
EMI (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
A landmark album that is perhaps the single most influential beat source in hip hop! The record was the brainchild of bongo player Michael Viner – who also happened to be running the Pride subsidiary of MGM at the time. Viner's got a meeeeeean touch on the bongo, hitting it hard and funky like the best 70s conga players – and his approach to the instrument is kind of like a funky update of popular instrumental styles laid down on guitar by The Ventures or on moog by Hot Butter. This album features the classics "Apache" and "Bongo Rock" – both with monster funky breakdowns that showed up on a heck of a lot of hip hop records over the years – plus loads of other goodies like "Last Bongo In Belgium" and "Bongolia". Excellent stuff – and darn hard to find! (We can still remember how stunned we were when we found our first copy in a Canadian record store back in 1987 – and even then we had to pay plenty!) Japanese reissue version includes 4 bonus tracks – "Sing Sing Sing", "Kiburi (part 1)", "Satisfaction", and "Last Bongo In Belgium (breakers mix)". CD

✨✧ Tom JonesSomethin Bout You Baby I Like/Memories Don't Leave Like People Do ... CD
Decca/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two mid 70s albums from Tom Jones – back to back on a single CD! Somethin Bout You Baby is a set that has Jones changing things up from previous albums – moving a bit back towards some of the country-inspired pop he was singing in the late 60s – with a bit more emphasis on ballads and laidback tracks, usually done with an undercurrent of sadness. Johnnie Spence is still on deck to arrange – and titles include "Rainin In My Heart", "You Make Me Smile", "Which Way Home", "Sing For The Good Times", and a sweet funky take on "Right Place Wrong Time", with some great keyboards in the mix! Memories Don't Leave is a great American date from Jones – one recorded after his move to the US in the mid 70s, with very hip backings arranged by HB Barnum and Wade Marcus! There's a subtle, soulful groove on many cuts – which is no surprise, given that Johnny Bristol penned about half the cuts on the record, usually with that same mix of funk and strings that he was using on his own great MGM albums of the time. In fact, the record almost feels like a Bristol date, but with Jones' vocals instead – and titles include the killer funk cut "Lusty Lady", plus "Us", "Son Of A Fisherman", "We Got Love", "The Pain Of Love", "I Got Your Number", and "City Life".
