During this formative period of the late 1960's & early 1970's, the greatest exponents of these themes included Herman 'Bongo Herman' Davis, Lester 'Bongo Les' Young, & Eric 'Bingy Bunny' Lamont . Edwards went on to use that rhythm track to create an entire LP worth of versions that would historically become the first 'riddim album'.
