John Kongos: Kongos

Album Review

Expanded breakthrough album by the 1970s songsmith.

South Africa-born John Kongos landed in London just in time to ride the rising tide of hairy, rootsy, post-Beatles singer-songwriters. First released in 1972, his second solo album features a host of guests, including percussionist Ray Cooper, producer Gus Dudgeon and engineer Roy Thomas Baker: all key players in the early careers of Elton John, Bowie, Queen and others.
