Stranded in the Jungle by The Cadets.
The video goes well with the tune.

The first time I heard this song was the cover by The New York Dolls. An excellent version.

I've searched for Frank's version, but came up empty.
Where, oh where could it be?

Philly '76 is the first official release, and only played on tour in 1976.

However, he did quote it with every 'Great Googly Moogly' he ever uttered...

This looks like a great show with special guest Flo & Eddie. Smile
It's a shame that it's unavailable right now (Bad Source). Sad

Funny, the Jayhawks originated it the same year the Cadets covered it! hmm

Standard practice in those days. In fact, I think there were three versions in the charts at the same time.

From <http://www.rockabilly.nl/references/messages/jayhawks_vibrations.htm>:
Quote:
In spite of the record's low fidelity and the Jayhawks' shaky harmony, "Stranded in the Jungle" became an instant hit. Modern Records, recognizing the song's potential, recorded a more polished, more powerful and better recorded version with the Cadets. In fact, most people think that the Cadets' version is the original. Their version peaked at # 15 in Billboard's pop charts, bypassing the Jayhawks' version (# 18) and another cover by the Gadabouts on Mercury (# 39).

That's a chart topping "hat-trick" for the 'Jungle'!
Nice back-up info, DrDork.

Still, it must have been a mind-fuck for the Jayhawks to watch the Cadets top them on the charts with their OWN song.

It reminds me of Otis Redding on the Redding/Hendrix Monterey Pop '67 album, bitchin' about Aretha Franklin stealing his song 'Respect' (which she took to #1) right before he performs it.
I'm guessing the record companies (back then) did what they wanted. Twisted Evil

In fairness to The Cadets, they may have mangled some of the lyrics, but theirs was the only 1956 version containing the line "Great googa mooga!"

As far as I know, this was the first "great goog... moo..." on record.

1. The Cadets, Stranded In The Jungle (released June 1956): Great googa mooga! Lemme outta here! (spoken by Prentice Moreland)

2. Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Person To Person (released 1957): Bring your big, fine, foxy, great-googa-mooga-lord-look-at-that! self on home

3. The Spaniels, Great Googley Moo (first version recorded November 1957, released decades later; second version recorded and released March 1958):
1957 version, I think: I've got a gal so fine/She's 'bout to drive me out of my mind… Great googley moo/When she holds me tight/Great googley moo/She rock & roll all night
1958 version, I think: I've got a gal so sweet/She knocks me right off my feet… Great googley moo/When she rock & roll/Great googley moo/She satisfies my soul

4. The Cadillacs, Great Googly Moo (recorded 1958, released 1983): Great googly moo/I got eyes for you/Great googly moo/I hope you feel the same way too (musically similar to the Spaniels song, but with completely different lyrics, aside from the title phrase)

5. Howlin' Wolf, Going Down Slow (recorded and released 1961): And women? Great googly moogly! (spoken by Willie Dixon)

On KMET-FM Los Angeles, FZ said,
Quote:
“Going Down Slow” contains the original version of “great googly moogly”. The first time I ever heard “great googly moogly” any place is in the middle of this song. And he does a really good rendition of it.

He also mentioned Screamin' Jay (without naming the specific song). But he was confused about whose version of Stranded In The Jungle contained “great googa mooga”.

I was watching the Dead Poets Society again the other night and noticed Stranded in the Jungle was played in a party scene.

The Cadets' version, according to the IMDb.
