This is one of those superobscure collector-type albums, probably better known for having only one existing copy than for the music contained. Nothing is known about the band Jungle except that they recorded this album in 1969. It's definitely an accomplished studio effort, with excellent recording and production. There are lots of really great swirling acid organ, good strong singing (sometimes harmonized), and some truly great isolated fuzz guitar breaks with some of the other guitar work approaching a jazzy flavor. The tunes are all originals, and while the lyrics have dated, the band still sounds great. Not only was this originally an extremely rare artifact originally, but both the CD and LP reissues were limited to 500 as well. If you're one of those psych-obscurity freaks, this is worth picking up if you see it at a reasonable price. Otherwise, it's probably best left to the real freaks.
