RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2014

REMASTERED & EXPANDED EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC 1972 ALBUM BY JOHN KONGOS
WITH NINE BONUS TRACKS
FEATURES HIT SINGLES ‘HE’S GONNA STEP ON YOU AGAIN’ & ‘TOKOLOSHE MAN’
WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NEW LINER NOTES

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 ‘He’s 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. ‘He’s Gonna Step On You Again’ was recorded by the HAPPY MONDAYS in 1990 as ‘Step On’, (a hit single), which brought Kongos’ music to a new generation of followers.

This Esoteric Recordings release has been re-mastered and features nine bonus tracks (taken from his singles released by Fly / Cube Records), a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.
