Mine has the correct spelling of OHKEY DOKEY and the record labels are white and a different font is used for the titles.

Mr. Bong (with all due respect) is not telling us again if this was "cut" (not sourced) from the original master tapes ... cause if not, it is absolutly impossible, that the sound could get any better than the original, even if you press each track on a extra vinyl, it´s not getting better than the source used ... but well, even if master tapes have been available...it seems that record master tapes, are the only thing in the world which get better over the years. Well maybe selling is the main issue as usual and then the "magic" kicks in and music "lovers" get deaf or something.

I've got a line on a NM French copy (OG press) for a great price. Anyone know anything about it? Is the quality the same as US? PLEASE HELP! Offer will be gone tomorrow!

Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band – Bongo Rock (1973)

• The Incredible Bongo Band was formed to make a single track for the soundtrack to an early 70’s horror film. When that track went to #1 in Canada, the label (undoubtedly smelling money) asked for a full-length follow up. From there it should have been a short hop to obscurity, but a funny thing happened on the way to the dustbin; a house party DJ in the South Bronx named Kool Herc used 2 copies of the record as a way to keep his crowds moving – making it the first breakbeat album ever. The music from those parties is now considered to be the cornerstone of the hip-hop culture and sample-based music. Mojo calls it – no joke – “possibly the most influential album in the history of post-60’s popular music.”

Apache is that one song that you couldn't possibly get tired of hearing. It's the one song that no matter where it plays, be it a supermarket, cafeteria line, yoga class, math test, or wherever, that will even lift the flattest of feet. I hope I never hear this at a urinal or I'll accidentally piss on my shoes while uncontrollably busting some uprock.

Other than being the b-boy national (now international) anthem, it's just a damn fine song, and one that is all too often overlooked whenever your favorite message board has a poll for the top 100 albums or songs of all time.

This record features "the national anthem of hip hop" (Popmaster Fabel, Rock Steady Crew), 'Apache'. Along with Babe Ruth's 'The Mexican' and James Brown's 'Give it up, Turn it loose', the track is one of the most revered of the pre-rap hip hop era, when DJs such as Bambaataa, Kool DJ Herc and Flash were kings and the b-boys their loyal subjects.<br>Don't make the mistake of neglecting the rest of the album, though. The LP is quite literally riddled with breaks of all tempos, driven by super-tight bongos. Originals change hands for ludicrous sums - if you're looking to cut up double copies of Apache I'd recommend the Alpha/Omega bootleg represses, they're clear and loud, and if you ruin them it won't cost you £80+ each to replace them!
