Finest Underrated Classic Rock Musician

John Kongos is probably one of the most underseen legends of classic rock. His mix of psycadelic rock with london pop, John has made some great hits. "He's Gonna Step On You Again," is one his best while, "Tokoloshe Man," is another great hit. Although you most likely will not hear John on any classic rock radio stations, he is one of the best musicians out there. Check out both his albums as soon as you can! He's great.

Elton John fans know about this one

I'd have to dig through hundreds of LPs in my basement to find it, but I do recall that Elton John had a hand in the production of this Kongos release. As a result, you'll find great contributions on this album from some of Elton's earliest (and best) session musicians; namely, the great Caleb Quaye (guitar) and equally great Roger Pope (drums). Recommended top selections: Lift Me from the Ground, Try to Touch Just One, and I Would Have Had a Good Time. Kongos seemed to drop out of sight after the release of this album...what a shame, he had plenty of potential as an artist.


He's Gonna Step on You Again is one of the Cooooolest Songs of the Rock Era!

In 1966, Kongos and a number of his associates relocated to London and cut a 1967 single as Floribunda Rose for Piccadilly. Floribunda Rose eventually morphed into Scrugg, a psychedelic pop band that released a trio...
