`Bongo Rock' or 'The Story Of The Incredible Bongo Band' features the two original Bongo Band albums in their entirety (`Bongo Rock` and `The Return of the Incredible Bongo Band`) "The Incredible Bongo Band`s cover of track `Apache` originally made famous by The Shadows, is simply legendary in the world of dance music. Not only arguably one of the most sampled tracks of all time and a staple for Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash as they invented the art of DJing at the Bronx block parties of the `70s, it has become an all-time hip hop and breakers anthem and is revered as the original break of all original breaks with the rhythms of this LP coining the term Breakbeat.rnrnFormed by MGM A&R Michael Viner in 1972 to supplement the soundtrack to the virtually anonymous B film 'The Thing With Two Heads'. The IBB went from loose studio collective to an instrumental pop covers consortium, interpreting classics of the day in their own inimitable percussive fashion.rnrnB-Movie soundtracks, The Beatles, drummers gone bad, Frank Zappa, Kool Herc... The album has a remarkable story behind it, detailed in Angus Batey's extensive sleeve notes.rnrnApache has been sampled by: Missy Elliot, Coldcut, Will Smith, Goldie, Jurassic 5, Moby, Run DMC, Sugarhill Gang, Beastie Boys and Massive Attack and many many more. A must in every record collection.rnrnrn1. Apachern2. Let There Be Drumsrn3. Bongoliarn4. Last Bongo in Belgiumrn5. Dueling Bongosrn6. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vidarn7. Raunchyrn8. Bongo Rockrn9.
