Mojo (UK) - - What Goes On! -

The Cadets’ only hit, a ver­sion of The Jay Hawks’ wacky Stranded In The Jun­gle, is re­leased by Mod­ern. The doo wop­pers, who also recorded as The Jacks, had mostly been knock­ing out cov­ers of Nappy Brown, The Drifters, The Mid­nighters and even Elvis Pres­ley since early ‘55. The Cadets’ take reaches num­ber 15 in July: by Au­gust, their ver­sion and The Jay Hawks’ is joined by a third by The Gad­abouts. Later in­ter­pre­ta­tions come cour­tesy of Shorty Long, the New York Dolls and Adam Ant.

Do the strand(ed): The Cadets (clock­wise from top left) Wil­lie Davis, Dub Jones, Aaron Collins, Lloyd McCraw and Ted Tay­lor; (be­low) hit 45.
