The Jimmy Castor Bunch

  • E-Man Grooving [Atlantic, 1976] B
  • The Best of the Jimmy Castor Bunch [Rhino, 1995] *

Consumer Guide Reviews:

E-Man Grooving [Atlantic, 1976]
When Castor says "that funky monster's breathin' fire down my neck," does he refer to Count Dracula, the rather cool get-down man on this LP, or is he planning a hot follow-up? B

The Best of the Jimmy Castor Bunch [Rhino, 1995]
Not a one-joke band--a two-joke band ("Troglodyte [Cave Man]," "Bertha Butt Boogie," "Hey Leroy, Your Mama's Callin' You"). *
