"Hey Leroy, Your Mama's Calling You" by Jimmy Castor.

OK, back to the 60's (a toughie!): This NYC native started his career as a doo-wop singer and in time replaced Frankie Lymon when he left The Teenagers in '57. He took up the sax in '60. His one solo hit came in '66 with a latin/soul/jazz-influenced number. He eventually became the undisputed master of novelty disco-funk with "Troglodyte" in '72 and "The Bertha Butt Boogie" in '75. Artist? Hit?

Yesterday's answer: "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" by Glenn Medeiros.
