“In The Summertime – Mungo Jerry (with lyrics)” on YouTube

“In The Summertime – Mungo Jerry (with lyrics)” on YouTube

The song most associated with MUNGO JERRY is the global hit IN THE SUMMERTIME, it sold over six million copies worldwide in the first six months of release and that total is now estimated to be over a staggering thirty million units, and it is now officially recognised as the most played summer song of all time. Winning for itself and its writer RAY DORSET, prestigious Sony / ATV and Ivor Novello awards.

In describing the music of MUNGO JERRY as pure pop would be an insult to the varying styles of rock, blues, boogie and skiffle that has graced the stages of concerts and festivals which have seen MUNGO JERRY sharing and indeed at times topping the bill with the likes of JIMI HENDRIX, ELTON JOHN, ROD STEWART & THE FACES, GENESIS, STATUS QUO, CANNED HEAT, FREE.

Just after the single’s release, the band turned in a breathtaking performance at the Hollywood Music Festival, near Newcastle Under-Lyme with acts including BLACK SABBATH, TRAFFIC, JOSE FELICIANO and making their first UK appearance, GRATEFUL DEAD…..

    Depends on where you fall on the generational divide. My Dad would dismiss these guys as hippies and freaks. Me, I would hang with them exactly because they were hippies and phreaks.

    I hope they still have it happening, because that was some time ago. I am looking at the 1970s long hair & bell bottoms. .. wow!
