Roger King Mozian - Spectacular Percussion


Here's another gem I rescued from the HPB bargain bin. Two things caught my eye - the cover, and the word "percussion". I love anything percussion! There are some really great songs on this album, and lots of percussion - trap drums, conga drums, bongoes, tympani, wood blocks, cow bells, and much more. This is definitely worth a listen! (I couldn't find a year on this album, so if anyone knows, please let me know!)

That's my uncle. I believe that it was released in 1956.
