Description

The song most associated with Mung Jerry is the global hit 'In The Summertime', it sold over six million copies worldwide in the first six months of release and that total is now estimated to be over a staggering thirty million units now, and it is officially recognised as the most played summer song of all time. Winning for itself and its writer Ray Dorset, prestigious Sony / ATV and Ivor Novello awards.

In describing the music of MUNGO JERRY as pure pop would be an insult to the varying styles of rock, blues, boogie and skiffle that has graced the stages of concerts and festivals which have seen MUNGO JERRY sharing and indeed at times topping the bill with the likes of JIMI HENDRIX, ELTON JOHN, ROD STEWART & THE FACES, GENESIS, STATUS QUO, CANNED HEAT, FREE.

The long awaited follow-up to 'In the SUMMERTIME' was 'BABY JUMP', which also made No 1, it was a hard rocking Ray Dorset composition much influenced by his Rock a Billy connections, then another of his compositions, Lady Rose, became the third Mungo Jerry maxi single and made No 3 in the charts.

1973 saw one of MUNGO JERRY's biggest hits, 'ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT' race up the charts to No.3 with the follow-up WILD LOVE charting and LONG LEGGED WOMAN DRESSED IN BLACK' continuing the hit making sequence along with songs like 'HELLO NADINE' , 'IT'S A SECRET'. FORGOTTEN LAND and LET'S GET STARTED etc.
1980 saw RAY DORSET back at No.1, when Scottish singer KELLY MARIE hit the top spot with his composition Feels Like I'm In Love.

No history of MUNGO JERRY would be complete without mention of the project in which, Ray invited rock legends, PETER GREEN, formerly of FLEETWOOD MAC and VINCENT CRANE of ATOMICROOSTER, to a jam at his home studio which resulted in the KATMANDU album, 'A CASE FOR THE BLUES'.

Instead of simply resting on his laurels and living off the success of the worlds biggest selling summer song "In the Summertime". Ray Dorset aka Mungo Jerry has in this new millennium maintained his reputation as the King of the Groove by releasing some of his best and strongest work and Mungo Jerry's live stage performance has been much acclaimed at Blues, Jazz and Rock Festivals throughout the world.

2016 the new release 'REWIND' - a double CD which reflects an overview of Mungo Jerry's total work on the first CD and a complete new view on the second CD.

The first compilation CD would not be complete without hits like 'IN THE SUMMERTIME', 'LADY ROSE' or 'HELLO NADINE' but it also contains some tracks which will be a surprise for many people - a rocky, bluesy Mungo Jerry with 'SNAKEBITE' or 'MOTOR BIKIN' - tracks that are hard to get.

The second CD of REWIND reflects the Varity of Mungo Jerry's music, a complete new CD.

Opening with a lazy rock tune 'IT DON'T MATTER', continuing with a classic blues track 'ONE MORE NIGHT WITHOUT YOU' and finishing with a waltz-like song 'THE OLD APPLE TREE' - all combined in the second disk of REWIND.

REWIND is a timeless album that shows Mungo Jerry as a songwriter, blueslover and also reflects a music and lifestyle that is and was important for more than just one generation of musiclovers - the 70's Hippie Culture.
