Tower Of Power - Live And In Living Color Live And In Living Color
Funk New - LP BS 2924 Warner
Sealed 1976 Original. Recorded Live At Sacramento Memorial Auditorium And Cerritos College. “The Band's Final Album For Warner Bros. Before It Decamped To Columbia, The Absolutely Stunning 1975 Live And In Living Color Ensured That Tower Of Power Left In A Blaze Of Glory. The Group Brought What Remains One Of The Era's Finest Live Albums To Glorious Fruition. Leaving Behind The Dismal Soul Of Its Previous In The Slot, The Band Fell Back On Its Two Great Strengths -- Classy Live Performance And Unerring Funk. With Every Ounce Of The Group's Full Energy Packed Into The Grooves And A Little More Added For Emphasis, Live Squeezes Out Five Tracks Of Epic Proportions. Reaching Back To Its Debut LP, East Bay Grease, Tower Of Power Jammed On A Majestic 23-Minute Rendition Of "Knock Yourself Out" And The Sleepy Classic "Sparkling In The Sand," Before Continuing Its Sonic Domination Across Two Songs Pulled From Bump City. "Down To The Nightclub (Bump City)" Is Effusive, While "You're Still A Young Man" Is An Absolutely Outstanding Performance Of One Of TOP's Finest Songs -- And Judging By The Audience Enthusiasm, It Packed As Much Power In 1976 As It Did In 1972 (And Indeed, Still Does Today). Courageously, Only One Track, "What Is Hip?," Emerges From The Group's Most Successful Era, But With Its Rock Riffing Slices And Roiling Organ Solo, You Really Don't Need Anything Else -- It Stands Well As A Lone Representative Of What Many Hail As TOP's Finest Hour. There's Nothing To Fault Here Except, Possibly, The Decision To Release A Mere Single Disc At A Time When Live Double Albums Were Becoming De Rigueur, A Move Guaranteed To Leave Listeners Crying For More. But Perhaps That Was The Intent All Along -- Too Little Is Always Sweeter Than Too Much.” Amy Hanson, AMG.... more details

Tower Of Power - Urban Renewal Urban Renewal
Funk New - LP BS 2834 Warner
Sealed 1974 Burbank Street Scene Label Original. “Tower Of Power Was Very Much In Its Prime In 1974, When The Bay Area Outfit Tore Up The Soul Charts With The Outstanding Urban Renewal. Lenny Williams, A Passionate, Wailing, Gospel-Influenced Dynamo Of A Singer, Had Joined Tower The Previous Year, And He Worked Out Remarkably Well; Whether Digging Into Tough Funk Or Romantic Ballads, Williams Is In Top Form. Funk Doesn't Get Much More Invigorating Than Horn-Driven Gems Like "Maybe It'll Rub Off," "Give Me The Proof" And "Only So Much Oil In The Ground" (A Commentary On The Mid-'70s Energy Crisis), And Soul Ballads Don't Get Much Richer Than "Willing To Learn" And "I Won't Leave Unless You Want Me To." Tower (An Influence On Everyone From L.T.D. To The Average White Band) Recorded A Number Of Essential Albums In The '70s, And Urban Renewal Is At The Top Of The List.” Alex Henderson, All Music Guide.... more details
