Mungo Jerry - 1976 - Impala Saga

Mungo Jerry is an English rock group whose greatest success was in the early 1970s, though they have continued throughout the years with an ever-changing line-up, always fronted by Ray Dorset. They are remembered above all for their hit "In the Summertime". It remains their most successful and most instantly recognisable song. Their name was inspired by the poem Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer, from T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. According to Joseph Murrell's The Book of Golden Discs (1978), 'Mungomania' was possibly the most startling and unpredicted pop phenomenon to hit Britain since The Beatles. Impala Saga was Mungo Jerry's first LP for Polydor, released in early 1976. The title track was a screaming, high-energy roots rock song, with a loud lead guitar, growling vocals, and full-on drumming in the best metal/arena rock manner. It showed off a hard rock side to this band that wasn't necessarily its best, although that song certainly shook up fans who associated the group exclusively with good-time music. Elsewhere, however, Impala Saga was a direct carryover from the group's Pye Records years, opening with the delightful acoustic rocker "Hello Nadine," which they'd first recorded (but never released) for their earlier label. The record never sold in large numbers and is considered a rarity in England. (Wiki-AMG)
