Jukebox Friday: Incredible Bongo Band - Last Bongo In Belgium

The Incredible Bongo Band are most known for their 1973 cover of "Apache", originally recorded by The Shadows in 1960. This cover version was sampled in, among others, The Sugarhill Gang's "Apache" and Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Jump On It". The former can be found below.

Despite having no apparent connection to the land of chocolate and fries, the Incredible Bongo Band released "Last Bongo In Belgium" in 1973 on Bongo Rock, and album which also featured the aforementioned "Apache" cover. The song has since been sampled in the Beastie Boys' "Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun" and Massive Attack's "Angel".
