Description by OLDIES.com:
Back by popular demand! Previously discontinued on Audio CD, this customer favorite is now available again! If there's such a thing as a quadruple threat, Jimmy Castor is it. This R&B singer/saxophonist/composer/ arranger had a big hit in 1966 with the title tune of this hits collection, "Hey, Leroy, You're Mama's Callin' You." (You may also remember that Castor, in the '70s with his group The Jimmy Castor Bunch, he had big hits with "Troglodyte (Cave Man)" and "The Bertha Butt Boogie.")

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Before he was the clown prince of novelty disco-funk with hits like 1972's "Troglodyte" and 1975's "The Bertha Butt Boogie," saxophonist Jimmy Castor had earlier chart success with 1966's Latin- and jazz-infused "Hey Leroy, Your Mama's Calling You," which resulted in a quick LP from Smash Records as a cash-in, and this set replicates that LP with four additional tracks added on, including a Leroy sequel of sorts called "Leroy Is in the Army." The Smash LP doesn't have the big funk sound Castor would aim for later, falling more in the soul-jazz arena, and most of the tracks here are truthfully just filler, making this a purchase for die-hard fans only. ~ Steve Leggett
