The Incredible Bongo Band - Apache (1973)

"Incredible Bongo Band's 'Apache' is hip hop's national anthem" - Hip Hop Connection

"A must in every record collection. I was just 7 years old, but I fell in love with the song immediately. Its one of those records that never leaves your brain. If you dont know Apache,you dont know hip-hop" - Pete Rock

Just the two songs here, if any of you want either album just leave a comment. Enjoy!

WICKED! Didn't know they did version of Iron Butterfly's Ina-gadda... until I heard it on the radio today. Is it on the album? Would love the album if you could upload it? No probs if not though.

Nice one, did anyone else sample this, I'm sure there was a version on Tommy Boy but I can't find it, any ideas?
