I wonder if the same Clara Moroni that brought her vocals to various releases like "Just a Game" and "Listen" brought her vocals to this record.

Nice sound quality - I've compaired the sound on this reissue with the original record and the result is nice. Good work.

George Horn did an excellent and gentle remastering job on this reissue. Compared to the original, there's a touch more bass, the closed hi-hats are much more in the foreground and are more dynamic, and the A-side's outro is less loud. Everything is just as crisp as before; no clipping, no distortion.

For now, the 12" is still in stock at the label's website, so you can get it for a fair price, only $15 with shipping within the U.S. The informative insert with photos and a message from Ricky Persi is a nice addition, and I was surprised at the high-quality poly inner sleeve, so it's a great value.

The record does come shrink-wrapped, which is a reason for a nitpicky complaint: the outer sleeve isn't stiff enough to withstand the shrink-wrap without crimping a little, so although it was otherwise well-packed, my copy arrived with some very minor creasing on the corners and edges. Also, the vinyl quality is not bad, but not great, either, with a bit more background noise than I'd expect on a modern pressing.

But the music is by far what's most important, and you can't beat the price for a clean vinyl copy of this moody gem. By this time next year, it'll probably cost twice as much!

I agree that this is a great record - I can explain why it sounds like a love song too - the lyrics are about a woman who has a romantic/sexual fantasy about living in the jungle with a handsome and brave Tarzan. It's almost a shame how rare this record is - it's hard to find in good quality even in mp3. Hopefully someone will take the initiative and compile it on a CD someday soon, but as the I Love Disco Diamonds series from Blanco Y Negro now seems to have ended, god knows who will be up to the challenge!

"Tarzan Loves The Summernight" by Big Ben Tribe is nothing short of amazing. Not only is this 12" extremely rare and sound amazing, but it also boasts one of the more interesting 12" cover arts of the italo disco era. Big Ben Tribe had several other songs, but this is the only one I would recommend. It's probably the best song on the Gong Records label. In case you don't know this song, it's a very slow and quirky song with some very soft and gentle female vocals. It's unique because it sounds more like an italo disco love song, but all the vocalist is singing about is how Tarzan loves the summer nights. This one goes for a lot of $$$ on eBay and elsewhere because this one definately fills the void on the Gong label.
