Off Beat - Troglodyte

"What we're gonna do right now is go back..." to 1972 and that crazy off beat song from The Jimmy Castor Bunch - Troglodyte.

Castor began his career as a do-wap singer in the late 50s in New York and replaced Frankie Lymon in The Teenagers before switching to the saxophone in 1960. In 1972 he formed the Jimmy Castor Bunch who reached their peak with the release of their first album and a cut from that LP called Troglodyte otherwise known as "Cave Man".

Troglodyte, which hit #6, was the groups highest charting effort. This video is a hoot...


  1. Wow, was that moooooog?

    Anyway, I remember the song, but I had never seen the video. I loved the guy listening to his 45 with Koss headphones on!

    I'll sock it to you, daddy! What a kick!

    Happy Halloween!

  2. One of the Butt sisters...Right on. Right on.

  3. Learned something new today - never heard of them before this!

  4. Barbara: Isn't it amazing what you can learn on the internet!? ;)
