There's a fun story behind this album, retold in detail in the liner notes. Asked to put together some music for the soundtrack of an upcoming B-movie horror film, The Thing with Two Heads, he called on songwriter Perry Botkin, Jr. Successful enough to scrape into the bottom of the Billboard album chart, the pair put together The Return of the Incredible Bongo Band in before fizzling out. What started as a tossed-off filler session for a crummy flick took on a life of its own.

Bongos aren't the Alfonso Santisteban Alfonso Santisteban sound heard, naturally, and fans of both lounge-rock and that crisp, reverby guitar sound prominent in old spy movies and Ventures records will DSR Miami what the IBB were all about. Their version of "Apache," the classic '60s instrumental made famous by the Shadowsis the equal of any other, and while that can't be said of their takes on "Satisfaction," "Raunchy," "Wipeout" or even "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," these studio musicians -- most of whom the creators of the IBB don't recall but which may or may not have included some heavyweights -- sure had a good time stepping out on their nights off.

Please try Its A Beautiful Day Its A Beautiful Day later. I bought Bongo Rock with the expectation of hearing an instrumental album, instead of listening to an hour of breakbeats.

That said, there's a reason many seek the latter, and it's mostly due to the percussive chemistry shared between Jim Gordon and King Errisson, driving everything else, like a 70's funky showdown version of Rich vs.

The grooves they create more or less settle The Zombies Shes Not There in as to what to expect for the duration of the disc, with less variation but also less repetition than you might expect.

I would fit it in listening sessions as a starter to Michael Viners Incredible Bongo Band Bongo Rock The Story Of The Incredible Bongo Band funk instrumentals, such as "Absolutely The Best Of Dennis Coffey", or alternatively with other great cover bands like The Ventures. Highlights for me were actually towards the end of the disc: "Okey Dokey" reminds me a bit of Goblin's "Snip Snap" until the orchestra cues launch it into ultra exploitation soundtrack land, and it then settles back into deep percussion.

The two remixes are ok, but are not much of a dj or remixer showcase. Sound quality of the CD is mediocre, like a decent mp3. Not really good for a high end system. Can't help thinking the now very expensive original LP probably blows it away in terms of clarity and character. Love it!!! The Holy Graill of Hip Hop and action tv background sounds. Everyone has heard pieces of this music before if they own a tv or watch movies.

The hand percussion on this is phenomenal. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love.
