In 1972, Michael Viner was an executive at MGM Records. Asked to put together some music for the soundtrack of an upcoming B-movie horror film, The Thing with Two Heads, he called on songwriter Perry Botkin, J. and the two of them whipped up a pair of songs called "Bongo Rock" and "Bongolia. By the middle of 1973, the songs, attributed to the Incredible Bongo Band, began to take off, both in Canada and on the . R&B and pop charts, so Viner and Botkin took the concept to the next obvious level and cut an album, also titled Bongo Rock.

The Incredible Bongo Band, also known as Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band, was a project started in 1972 by Michael Viner, a record artist manager and executive at MGM Records. Viner was called on to supplement the soundtrack to the B-film The Thing With Two Heads. The band's output consisted of upbeat, funky, instrumental music. Many tracks were covers of popular songs of the day characterized by the prominence of bongo drums, conga drums, rock drums and brass.

Complete your Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band collection. 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 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.

John Lennon and Ringo Starr from The Beatles have been rumoured to have been involved in some capacity on this album. If so, it just adds to the awesomeness of an already super dope record!
