Jungle Drums & Wild Fantasies

Wild Fantasy's 1978 Jungle Drums LP

I recently came across Wild Fantasy’s 1978 disco classic Jungle Drums, and I have to admit I haven’t been able to put the record down since. This classic album was produced by Tony Hiller of Brotherhood Of Man fame. The record contains amazing dancefloor friendly cuts including “Gypsy Lady”, “Africa”, “Get It On”, and “Africa”. I first found out about the group when I found a twelve-inch version of “Africa” for about two dollars and thought it was worth giving it a listen. When it comes to disco, any song or artist with the word “fantasy” and “Africa” included, I find, generally means it’s going to be good. This is definitely one of those times that the previous statement is absolutely true, with Wild Fantasy releasing a disco masterpiece in Jungle Drums.

i had this lp as a teenager. i was snapping up all sorts of concept disco albums, by producers like costandinos and moroder, as part of my anti rock rebellious phase.

i confess tho, i was more drawn to this album by the naughty cover than the music. but the music was a happy surprise.
