The Jimmy Castor Bunch - It's Just Begun LP 72 w Phase Two LP 72 w DIMENSION III LP 73 w Butt Of Course...LP 74 w The Everything Man LP 74 w Supersound LP 75 w E-Man Groovin' LP 76 w Maximum Stimulation LP 77 w Let It Out LP 78 w st LP 79 w The Return Of Leroy LP 83

What a huge talent we lost when Jimmy Castor passed on in 2012!  People may not remember the name but they sure remember the 'Bertha Butt Boogie' songs that my older sister memorized and would sing to me to make me laugh at the tender age of 6 years old!  I was prepared early on for extreme music from this alone and that's for sure!  It helps that he was completely connected to the overplayed songs of the day, had great humor and that he was such a great musician on the side as well as doing the funny voices.  Lots to go over with this post...take your time.

VA - A Furred Fistful O Funky Delicacies LP 08

I usually avoid the vinyl with websites on the cover but in this case, I like this new kind of label as we had a couple in the Twin Cities bringing back killer funk so I thought I would give them some exposure and look for more of their vinyl...name is www.tuffcity.com so check 'em out!  Features the bands:  Ike Turner, Guitar Ray, The Explosions, The Surveyors, Jungle Jim, Roy Roberts Experience and the Steptones.  https://www70.zippyshare.com/v/OcyDao4Q/file.html

FREEEZ - I.O.U. LP 83 w EP 83 w Idle Vice LP 85

Another one of those 'missing link' bands in this case moving from following Grand Master Flash on the STREETWISE release which was redone when they moved to Beggars Banquet label and all made into one song sampling each song on the B-side of the EP until finally completing their great sound after spending some time on the Bau Haus label.  Great lost dance band...the kind I like with at least three releases and completely lost in time.

NU SHOOZ - Poolside LP 85 w EP 85 w Told U So LP 88

REPOST Request w New Better Rip:  Thanks to Andrew Bosire who reminded me my first 86 LP rip had a bad lengthy scratch that took out most of the song parts too so I saw this little platter for cheap and got another copy to re-rip, seeing that my old girlfriend and I used to think the hit song was by Art of Noise in high school and kind of dug it.
