Recorded by Adam Ant and Boz Boorer at Boz's House of Boz studio in October 2003, this was planned as a charity single released in aid of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
The CD only single was advertised on the internet and orders were placed then the single was withdrawn after EMI blocked its release and most copies were ordered to be destroyed.

Nobody knows how many copies got out into the public domain, last count is that there are at least 3 copies out of the 2000 pressed. (Not counting those held by Adam, Boz and possible the Dian Fossey charity)

Although the CD EP remains unreleased the tracks readily became available to the fanbase shortly afterwards in an edited format and also uncut versions as follows:

Track Time
Save the Gorilla 5:06
Jungle Rock 3:54
Monkey Man 4:22
Monkey Man 4:33
Stranded in the Jungle 4:37
Track Time
Save the Gorilla 4:42
Jungle Rock 3:20
Monkey Man 4:15
Monkey Man 4:25
Stranded in the Jungle 4:19

The final version of the CD was edited even more to cut out the "batty boy" references in the second version of Monkey Man as follows:

CD Version
Track Time
Save the Gorilla 4:59
Jungle Rock 3:42
Monkey Man 4:13
Monkey Man 3:29
Stranded in the Jungle 4:17

There are other smaller time discrepencies between the lower quality edited/unedited versions and the CD version but this is due to gaps of silence on the run in and run out of the recordings.

Jungle Rock was released officially in 2008 on Boz Boorer's Miss Pearl album.
