I knew jimmy Castor when he played the clubs in Harlem. He
was a favorite at Smalls Paradise. He was also unlike other musicians. He didn't hang out, was never disrespectful.. and did not mingle after his shows. he was very clean cut and honest. I joined
and art group years later and worked with his half brother michael.
after meeting Jimmy's Father and step Mother,..I that he was raised
in aloving and middleclass home.

Rest In Peace Jimmy!!!

Jimmy and I go back to our teen years in New York when we were both beginners in show business. I was so glad to meet him again here in Vegas and to get to meet his daughters at his Trader Vic's show and at other venues. My heartfelt sympathy to Sandi and all the family. I will keep Jimmy in my heart and in my thoughts. His memory will live with me.

All respects due! From the man that brought 'Leroy, your mama's calling you', this time you were called. No worries Jimmy, 'It's just begun' for you and now you can show them all up in heaven how to do the 'Bertha Butt Boogie'. Thanks so much for showing us how to reach our 'Potential' and more importantly for reaching yours. You'll be missed, but your music will live on forever. Easy!

I first heard the Jimmy Castor Bunch in 1972 on WRAP 850 AM in Virginia while early in the 7th Grade @ Carver Elementary School. They was the first non-Motown group I became fascinated with. Later, I was blessed to see the Bunch perform on Ellis Haslip's "SOUL" on PBS. I was thrilled with "Hey Leroy (The Creature From The Black Lagoon Is Your Father!); "The First Time Ever (I Saw Your Face)"; and several other tunes they performed. In 1979, the last 45 by The Jimmy Castor Bunch I bought was his instrumental of "The Christmas Song". I have never heard it on the radio.

Rest in Peace, I will now have to rely on seeing you again on YouTube.

For me "Hey Leroy" and the "Bertha Butt Boogie" are mainstays on my radio show. Jimmy was a true trailblazer. It was with The Juniors group, that Jimmy Castor would record the Teenagers tune, "I promise to remember". Old school at its best. I am saddened of his passing.
