About Jungle Boogie

"Jungle Boogie" is a funk song recorded by Kool & the Gang for their 1973 album Wild and Peaceful. It reached number four as a single and became very popular in nightclubs. Billboard ranked it as the number 12 song for 1974, despite there being as many as 36 #1 singles that year. The song's spoken main vocal was performed by the band's roadie Don Boyce. An instrumental version of the tune with an overdubbed flute part and additional percussion instruments titled "Jungle Jazz" appeared on the album Spirit of the Boogie. The song is noted for the Tarzan yell heard at the song's end and the grunting, panting and scatting heard throughout.
