Bongo Band

NYT revisits "the National Anthem of Hip-Hop," Incredible Bongo Band's Bongo Rock which is being reissued next month. Michaelangelo gets props for first calling attention to it at the EMP Pop Conference in Seattle (which, by the way, has opened the paper call for '07). Oliver Wang has MP3s of just some of the tracks that sample "Apache" (Sugar Hill Gang, Moby, Nas, The Roots, etc.).

If there were a National Anthem of Hip-Hop, I think it'd be "Funky Drummer" by James Brown. It's been sampled a lot more often. Bboys love the break in The Sugar Hill Gang's version of "Apache," though.
