The Incredible Bongo Band – “Apache” (1973)

August 29, 2008 at 3:09 pm (Funk)

This version of this song (originally done by The Shadows in the early 60s and covered by just about everyone) has been sampled for years by just about every rapper you can name – it is simply one of the most sampled songs in history.
This revolving-door band of musicians was led by bongo player Michael Viner (hence the name of the group) and made 3 albums in the early 70s before disappearing.
