Description

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic self-titled 1972 album by John Kongos. South African born Kongos had some success in his native country in the early 1960s before moving to Britain to further his career. He recorded his first album for Pye Records newly formed progressive label Dawn in 1970 before signing to Fly / Cube Records with whom he enjoyed two successful and highly creative hit singles Hes Gonna Step on You Again and Tokoloshe Man. The album Kongos was released in 1972 and was a UK chart hit. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, Kongos featured a diversity of styles and experimentation and saw contributions from musicians such as Ray Cooper and Caleb Quaye. Hes Gonna Step On You Again was recorded by the Happy Mondays in 1990 as Step, (a hit single), which brought Kongos music to a new generation of followers.
