(John) Kongos - Kongos LP - 1972




I haven't been buying many records lately. Money & time have been tight. I've seen this record around a bunch over the years and never bought it, so when i came upon it recently and seeing as things have been dry, and like a junkie needing a fix, i bought it. its not a bad time period piece from 1972. Some hippy God loving soft psych with a few guitar moves and even fewer fuzzy moments. Not bad. Kinda of reminds me of some of the stuff my Uncle Dan would play while he would baby sit me & my sister right around 1972 and have his funny smelling cigarette parties....

Interesting tidbit about this record is that "He's Gonna Step On You Again" is cited in the Guinness Book of Records as being the first song to ever use a sample.... Hmmmmmm i did not know that....

I've had this for years, I always liked "Tokoloshe Man" and "He's Gonna Step On You Again". Good Gus Dungeon production.

Whenever you go and where ever you go. Be it the spa, a hotel or any-where else, its not the surrounding that gets inside you, it`s the inspirational music that plays with your mind and the environment around you..

That song was later covered by Happy Mondays as 'Step On'.

Thanks for this. I had to go about four or five Google search pages deep to find it, but I'm glad i did.
