Mizell recorded “Jungle Rock” in 1958 for Eko Records; the song did not chart,was reissued again by King Records in 1959, but again failed to find success.

Charley Records then re-released “Jungle Rock” in March 1976, and it duly made Number 3 in the UK singles chart.

    I never heard “Jungle Rock” before but that kind of beat will never get old.

    I love the shots of the audience. 1971 had spectacular hair and fashions.

    I wonder how tired Hank Mizell got of wearing his little safari outfit?

    I always love mylar backdrop, especially when they don’t cover the entire stage and the performer needs to confine themselves to a very small space, caged just like a jungle animal at a zoo.

    The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!
