Incredible Bongo Band 7-Inch Box Set

Mr. Bongo

Available in store, April 16th 2016 for Record Store Day.  Extra copies will be available online April 17th.

5 x 7" singles in Incredible Bongo Band branded sleeves, in a unique, beautiful mirrored box with an exclusive 8-page insert featuring photographs and the history of the band.

Formed by MGM A&R man Michael Viner in 1972 to supplement the soundtrack to the virtually anonymous B-Movie film The Thing With Two Heads, "The IBB" went from a loose studio collective to an instrumental pop covers consortium, interpreting classics of the day in their own inimitable percussive fashion. B-Movie soundtracks, The Beatles, drummers gone bad, Frank Zappa, Kool Herc... These albums have a remarkable story behind them which is detailed in the exclusive insert included in the boxset, written by Angus Batey.
Apache has been sampled by Missy Elliot, Coldcut, Will Smith, Goldie, Jurassic 5, Moby, Run DMC, Sugarhill Gang, Beastie Boys and Massive Attack among many others.
