Featuring percussion-heavy versions of 'Let's Start', 'Bongo Rock' and 'Pick Up The Pieces'. 'Back To Rhythm' was the final recording in Ishikawa's African-influenced period. He cut this record with his band 'Count Buffalos', featuring Kiyoshi Sugimoto, Takeru Muraoka, Larry Sunaga and arranger Hiromasa Suzuki. Includes excellent cover versions of The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, BT Express, Stevie Wonder, Average White Band, Incredible Bongo Band and Fela Kuti. Originally released in Japan in 1975 by Columbia, this is now extremely difficult to find in it's original format, and very pricey indeed! Official Mr Bongo reissue.
