    The original Incredible Bongo Band's Bongo Rock is firmly cemented into musical history having provided the often sampled (and completely irresistible) “Apache” drum break for a million and one producers to cut up. Also known as Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band, the project was born in 1972.

    Over 3 decades after its inception, UK producer and avid record collector, Shawn Lee was marveling at the fact that there had never been an Indian style, sitar and tabla-heavy, version of the Incredible Bongo Band masterpiece, "Apache". Lee decided he’d take on the entire Bongo Band debut album; and also two of his favorite tracks from their second album for good measure. “Why cover a song when you can cover a whole album? This is the road to madness my friend, and it is my preferred route!”

    This LP is pressed on translucent vinyl and limited to 500 hand-numbered copies. Buy it here! http://bit.ly/xFZVFX
