The Kinks released “Apeman” in November, 1970 in the UK and December ’70 in the US. The tune was a follow up to the smash-hit “Lola” but didn’t fare quite as well in the States. It did, however, hit #5 in the UK and #9 in Australia.
Jack Wild, star of Oliver! and H.R. Pufnstuf covered the song on his 1971 L.P. Everything’s Coming Up Roses. Have a happy Monday!
