This is one of the best and most sought after psychedelic gems ever recorded, with amazing and fluid heavy fuzz guitars, superb organ, drums and fantastic songwriting. Recorded in New York in 1969 while the band was living in a farm in Vermont. 

The original was pressed in a run of 50 demo copy/s only! No names or hints are given on the original LP but after over a decade of excrutiating search, Miguel Rodriguez, the man behind finding DARIUS, GARRETT LUND, STONEWALL and many more, finally found the band members! 

So here is your chance to listen to one of the great mystical Albums of the Psychedelic Private Press Collectors realm at the fraction of the cost of the original, in AMAZING sound. This gem comes in a gatefold cover with unseen pictures and full band history, released in full colaboration with the surviving Band members…


Jungle “Jungle” Recorded in New York in 1969 no label Demo Album Issued in Pain Black Sleeve original previously only issued as a 50 copies. Reissued intially in a blue velveteen cover with all artwork & text embossed in silver foil (Little Indians 1997) Limited repressing 450 copies sold out quickly & the record was re-released in a smaller edition 250 copies on multi-coloured vinyl.Also produced from Little Indians a CD Edition on 1999. 
Only known one original copy exist in a private collection


From Los Angeles/California, this group made a pretty good laid back Rock record at the end of the decade that was re-issued in the ‘90s. 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.(Westergaard, AMG).


Turns out that JUNGLE where old Faves of us: Three Members of legendary California GARAGE PUNKERS the KNIGHT RIDERS (of “I” Fame) went on to play in Jungle. If you know the music of Jungle and ever wondered why the Album has powerful, emotional soulful vocals which may only can be compared to LOVE in moments ..here is why: The Knight Riders where one of the few racially integrated Garage bands and singer Butch went on to be one of the two lead singers in Jungle. The album is with the exception of 2 songs rather dark, which can be traced back some of the personal autobiographical hardships endured by the members. And if it was forshadowing the way the Jungle album was made, almost got a majorlabel deal and yet didn’t is a story that could fill books, yet so sad some of it is to tough to print to this day.

RED LOUNGE RECORDS 091.. 

From Los Angeles/California, this group made a pretty good laid back Rock record at the end of the decade that was re-issued in the '90s (Eight Little Indians CD 3027 / 1998). The critics are divided in their opinion about the privately pressed album. They differ from “Lost gem” to “mostly loungy (in the wrong sense) psychrock/AOR with offkey vocals and unimpressive songwriting” to “A strange one that’s gotten more attention than it deserves, but if you don’t get your hopes up too high you might enjoy it”. I like it and I think it’s pretty adventurous although they lose the direction sometimes. You better make up your own mind

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..... by Sean Westergaard......


Originally recorded in November of 1969 and previously only issued as a 50 copy run demo. This edition issued in 2011. Comes in a gatefold cover with unseen pictures and full band history, released in full collaboration with the surviving band members. MEMBERS: Virgil “Butch” Daniels, Jay Mierly, John Dawson, James Ryan Clark, and Delbert G. Lang. TRACKS: House Of Rooms, Somewhere Sweet Memories, Gray Picnic, Changes I’m Going Through, Early Morning Rising, and Slave Ship. DESCRIPTION: Here´s a real surprise, the first legitimate re-issue of this mega rare Californian psychedelic monster. 3 Members of legendary California garage punkers the Knight Riders (of "I" Fame) went on to play in Jungle. If you’re lucky enough to know the music of Jungle and ever wondered why the album has such powerful, emotional, soulful vocals, which can be compared to Love at moments…here is why: The Knight Riders were one of the few racially integrated garage bands and singer Butch went on to be one of the two lead singers in Jungle. The album is, with the exception of 2 songs, rather dark, which can be traced back to some of the personal, autobiographical hardships endured by the members, almost snagging a major label deal for the band, yet didn’t. It is a story that could fill books. Included with the insert booklet are some photos and a little background information, but most important finally some faces to this, until now, unsolved riddle of American private press psychedelic records!!! This is one of the best and most sought after psychedelic gems ever recorded, with amazing and fluid heavy fuzz guitars, superb organ, drums, and fantastic songwriting. Recorded in New York City in 1969 while the band was living on a farm in Vermont. The original was pressed in a run of 50 demo copies only! No names or hints were given on the original LP, but after over a decade of excrutiating search, Miguel Rodriguez, the man behind finding Darius, Garrett Lund, Stonewall, and many more, finally found the band members! So here is your chance to listen to one of the great mystical albums of the psychedelic private press collectors’ realm at a fraction of the cost of the original, in amazing sound. Released with full cooperation of the surviving band members. The previous is a compilation of information circulating on the Web. Patrick Lundborg gives it a lukewarm reception in the pages of The Acid Archives though offers that other listeners have been quite enthusiastic over the music. In either case it is still worth checking out for anyone into obscure private pressings of the era. Originals have changed hands for upwards of $3000, your cost here is substantially less.
