Incredible Bongo Band - Bongo Rock (2006)

(Michael Viner's) Incredible Bongo Band was a bunch of studio musicians who got together in the early 70's to record two albums.
This is a compilation wich gathers almost all tracks of those two records, joined with some remixes by Grandmaster Flash and Breakers.
A great cover version of The Shadows' "Apache".

...some of the best stuff happened long after the demise of the IBB, when early hip-hop DJs such as Kool DJ Herc and Grandmaster Flash, and then the Sugarhill Gang, Massive Attack and others, discovered the Incredible Bongo Band's recordings and began using samples from them. (Taken from AMG)
