The Jimmy Castor Bunch was an extraordinary 1970s American soul-funk outfit led by multi-instrumentalist James Walter Castor. The group reached the peak of their success in 1972 with the release of It's Just Begun, a heavily covered favorite used in films and sampled extensively by various major players in the hip-hop and dance scene (Pharrell, Grandmaster Flash, Jamiroquai, Eric B. & Rakim, De La Soul, Jungle Brothers, Ice-T, 2 Live Crew, Mos Def, Bloodhound Gang, The Prodigy, The Rock Steady Crew and even James Brown). It's Just Begun is anchored by the million selling gold hit "Troglodyte (Cave Man)" which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and lingered in the charts for fourteen weeks.

It's Just Begun's success comes from an effective and distinctive mix of funk, pop hooks, social commentary and gonzo comedy. The group knocks out a relentless stream of thick funky grooves and tackles everything from morality to philosophy. Littered with heavy vamping funk grooves, powered by growling fuzz baselines, Hendrix-inspired guitar work and Castor's trademark use of Afro-Latin rhythms, It's Just Begun is an important and influential release well worth a listen for anyone interested in the roots of '70s funk. After being plagued by unauthorized reissues over the last two decades, Tidal Waves Music presents the official reissue of this rare and out of print record on colored vinyl with the original Corrigan artwork and liner notes from Al Roberts.
