Bongo Rock" is a rock and roll instrumental written and recorded by Preston Epps. Released as a single in 1959, it charted Pop in the United States. In 1973 the Incredible Bongo Band recorded a cover version of "Bongo Rock" under the title "Bongo Rock '73" which became a minor hit. The Incredible Bongo Band version of the tune gained significant popularity in early hip hop circles as a breakbeat. Pioneering DJ Kool Herc used it frequently in his sets
Bongo Bongo Bongo successfully gets Preston Epps' hit single "Bongo Rock" into LP format. All tunes are about equally that good, provided you like bongos (which every teenager did in 1960, if you believe Les Baxter). Side two's "Call of the Jungle" is fascinating and somewhat Afro-Cuban, calling to mind Perez Prado's three long percussion suites: Voodoo Suite, Exotic Suite of the Americas, and Concierto Para Bongo.
