"Exotica, novelty rock 'n' roll, R&B, doo wop, rockabilly, calypso and jive from the fifties and early sixties. Rare cuts that all have one thing in common: apes in the jungle! Artists like crazy Nervous Norvus (whose 1956 novelty hit 'Transfusion' was followed up by 'Ape Call'), Cleveland soul sisters the Ebonettes and their 'Wild Man Walk', Bert Convey (of one-hit wonders The Cheers, and later a well-known gameshow host) and his 'The Gorilla', and everyone's favorite Italian American gigolo, the King of Swing, Louis Prima with his 'Civilization (Bongo Bongo Bongo)'. Prima would go on to become the well-known voice of the orangutan 'King Louie' in Disney's The Jungle Book."
