Number 782 - Mungo Jerry



Number 782

Mungo Jerry

"In The Summertime"

(1970)
.
Genre:Blues
Mungo Jerry is one of rock's great one-hit successes. Outside of England, they're known for exactly one song, but that song, "In the Summertime," is a seasonal anthem known by listeners who weren't even born when it was released. Mungo Jerry was a solid blues outfit as well -- in fact, one suspects they were the kind of blues band that purists Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies would have loved, had they ever intersected -- and knew how to get the most out of their jug band sound, which has helped them survive for three decades.
Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs ranked this song at Number (Er....no) and the Album ranked at Number (Can we get back to you?)
This song has a crowbarred rating of 64.8 out of 108
