TARZAN SONG (1952) Hear it Here!

I was trolling eBay last week and saw this record selling for $40. "Was $50," it said. "You save $10. (20% off)," it said. ZOWIE! 20% OFF! And for that price, I thought, surely it must be autographed by both ERB and Johnny Weissmuller, if not the Lord of the Jungle himself. But no such luck. 

So I kept looking, and five minutes later found the copy seen and heard here for $3.99. It didn't have the autographs, either, but at that price I can live with it. Did I get ripped off anyway? I suppose that's in the ear of the beholder. It's sort of like the Mighty Mouse Theme Song (only not nearly as good) after the same singers have had a few too many. But what the hell. It's Tarzan. You need to hear it anyway.

And that 20% off bargain is still there if you want it.

Imagine living in the jungle, where they've been singing it constantly since 1952.

Shouldn't that be crocodiles?

We had some Of those Little Golden Records when I was a kid. Mickey Mouse Club song, Mighty Mouse, and I think a Christmas one.
