FRANK ROTHE, Jungle Rock, 1976Posted: June 6, 2008
“Jungle Rock” is another classic Rockabilly song recorded by Hank Mizell in 1958. It didn`t hit the charts in the 50s but Charly records re-released it in 1976 and it became a hit in England and a Teddy Boy anthem.
Everything good about the original is missing in Frank Rothe`s cover version. Being a Pop-singer he just had to fail at this raw Rockabilly song. The German lyrics make it still kind of fun to listen to.
