Bongohead,  Northampton, MA. Yo, they don’t call me Bongohead for nuthin’! What’s funny about this particular recording is that was re-issued about five or six times, each time with a different cover, depending on the era it was re-released in. All I can say is there must have been something special about Mongo’s recording for it to be reissued so many times! Of all the cover art, I like the rare first version, the 10” called Chango, and the Drums and Chants collage cover done by Charlie Rosario in the ‘70s. This is an in-between one probably cashing in on the early 60s popularity of Olatunji and the Afro-centrism promoted by jazz artists. Some day I will have ALL the versions in my sweaty little hands.
