R.I.P. Jimmy Castor

JimmyCastor passed away earlier this week. I have a number of his records and his songs always put a smile on my face.

Here is probably my favourite from the "Bunch" who were known for weaving humour into their funky grooves. They got it spot on on both fronts with this one.

RIP Jimmy.

(I wonder, Will Jimmy’s first question in heaven be addressed to Ray Charles?).

PS: Just before I wrote this my daughter text to tell me she has heard Etta James has passed away. Not a good start to 2012.

Sad loss, Jimmy seemed to have great records tucked away everywhere, but I think the novelty bit ran a bit thin as the 70's progressed (I love 'em! - but not much commercial success)
