Jimmy Castor Bunch


I walk the city streets at night where most chumps won't
Cos they're uptight when danger darkness and fear say 'No'
What I got beneath my coat says 'Yo!'

Jimmy Castor (January 23, 1940 – January 16, 2012) was an American pop and funk musician. The Jimmy Castor Bunch group reached the peak of their commercial success in 1972 with the release of their album, It’s Just Begun, which featured two hit singles: the title track and “Troglodyte (Cave Man),” which was a large hit in the U.S., peaking at #6 in the Billboard Hot 100. The track stayed in the chart for 14 weeks and was a million seller by June 30, 1972, and received a gold disc award from the R.I.A.A. Many of the group’s tunes have been heavily sampled in films and in hip-hop. In particular, the saxophone hook and groove from “It’s Just Begun” and the spoken word intro and groove from “Troglodyte (Cave Man)”.
