Jimmy Castor - R.I.P-O-T-E-N-T-I-A-L
Got the word from @QTipTheAbstract’s twitter stream that Jimmy Castor passed today at the age of 64.
I guess it’s befitting that he left this earth on King’s day, as it’s no doubt that Jimmy was one of the true kings of funk, soul and definitely breakbeats.
For B-boys, “It’s Just Begun” has got to be the #1 break record of all time (just ask Rock Steady). But one of my all-time favorites is “Potential” - a groove joint off of Jimmy’s “Butt of Course” album.
Today’s audio post is dedicated to one of the pioneers of breakbeats, the true “Everything Man” - Jimmy Castor.
