amg review
The Jimmy Castor Bunch scored with a few novelty hits and sought to continue the trend with this well-rounded LP, but the trend had passed and this good production failed to reach its projected sales. The novelty special on this one, "Dracula," isn't up to the standards of past nonsensical efforts like "Leroy! Your Mama's Calling." This is unfortunate because the other jams, particularly the ballads and midtempo numbers, are marvelous executions of funk/jazz. A remake of the Spinners' "I Don't Want to Lose You" features a crying sax and emotive vocals; the midtempo numbers -- "Space Age," "Mellow Groove," and "Everything Is Beautiful" -- are creditable and instantly likable. Groovy stuff. ~ Andrew Hamilton, Rovi
