Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (180 gram deluxe 40th anniversary edition) ... LP
Pride/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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!) LP, Vinyl record album
(Super-heavy 40th anniversary reissue – on the same mirror-style cover as the original, with heavy tip-on cover!)

✨✧ Shawn Lee's Incredible Tabla BandApache/Bongo Rock ... 7-inch
Ubiquity, 2012/2020. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's the Incredible Tabla Band, not the Incredible Bongo Band – a very cool project by Shawn Lee that takes off on the famous bongo-led funk act of the 70s! Both cuts here are remakes of famous funk tunes by the IBB – and sound almost exactly like the originals right down at the core, from the horns, to the drums, to the cool organ swirls – save for the fact that instead of bongos, you'll hear tablas – and maybe a bit of sitar on the side, to further the Indian-styled groove of the music! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Akira IshikawaBack To Rhythm ... CD
Sony/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Heavy funk from a hip Japanese combo – one that features lots of drums and percussion from leader Akira Ishikawa, plus plenty of guitar, keyboards, and hard-riffing horns! Akira's taking most of his cues here from American funk of the early 70s – work by Incredible Bongo Band, BT Express, and others – but he often serves up the music with a fair bit of conga work at the front of the arrangements, in a way that takes familiar tunes and gives them a much rootsier, earthier kind of groove! The approach is unique, but totally great – and the album's a funk album unlike anything else we can think of – quite unusual even for the experimental Japanese scene of the time. Titles include "Bongo Rock", "Pick Up The Pieces", "Do It Til You're Satisfied", "I've Got To Use My Imagination", "Let's Start", "Love Is The Answer", and "Boogie On Reggae Woman". CD
