Was 5 years when heard it first time, said to my mother "what's these horns?" :-) since my dear mother is gone but I keep the original vinyl ... soon here a good crunchy rip of all tracks... regards


Now I know where Henry Mancini got the idea for his jazz score in "Hatari" in 1962.

... who got it from writer Galt MacDermot, who qualified at the South African College of Music in Cape Town, South Africa :)


And Cannonball Adderly got this from John Dankworth!!

I've been looking for this for years. I thought it was called "walk in the African jungle". I loved it as a child and it doesn't disappoint now!

I had this on a 45 rpm single with "Afro Blue" on the flip side. LOVE this!!

Justin Crowe

love this ! i remember this being on Columbia records green label!


I would have been 11 or 12 when this came out; I always liked it. At the time I never imagined I would end up living most of my life on the African continent and being so blessed as to experience a few of her countries and beauties.

Gwen Lorenz

Ohhh, I'm jealous!! I would love to visit that wonderful continent!

Dylan Gatenby

A Galt MacDermot chart that cooks.
