In 1973, superstar R&B/funk veterans Tower of Power hit the top of their game with their self-titled smash Tower of Power. Featuring the classic line-up of Lenny Williams on lead vocals, the TOP horns: Emilio Castillo, Lenny Pickett, Stephen Kupka, Mic Gillette & Greg Adams, plus the stunning funk masters Dave Garabaldi (drums), Rocco Prestia (bass), Chester Thompson (keys/vocals), Bruce Conte (guitar) and Brent Byars on congas, these Bay Area superstars continue to make albums and play stages all over the world now for over four decades. Featuring a ton of smash hits produced and written by the band, the Tower of Power album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning gold and platinum career.
With superlative chart topping pop and R&B classics like the beautiful So Very Hard To Go, the soul power of Get Yo' Feet Back on the Ground, plus one of the definitive funk anthems of all time What Is Hip?, the Tower of Power album would go on to become one of the best-selling albums in their extensive catalog.
Dig deeper into the San Francisco grooves and there you find even more platinum plus treasures like the masterful This Time It's Real, the powerful Soul Vaccination, plus the tender ballads Will I Ever Find a Love and Just Another Day, making Tower of Power one of the finest overviews ever of this stellar supergroup.
