    1968年夏に Emilio CastilloとStephen "Doc" Kupkaが出会い結成したR&B~FUNK系のバンドです。これは1970年の記念すべきデビュー作。3作目あたりからビッグになったバンドですが、デビュー作から十分にカッコいいです。

    Tower of Power is the third album release for the Oakland-based band, Tower of Power. This is their most successful album to date, which was released in May 1973.The album peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Top LPs chart in 1973 and received a gold record award for sales in excess of 500,000. The album spawned their most successful single, "So Very Hard to Go". The single peaked at No. 17 during the week of July 28, 1973 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two other singles from the album also charted on the Billboard Hot 100: "This Time It's Real" and "What Is Hip?". It marked the debut of Lenny Williams being the lead vocalist (though Williams had a solo career prior to joining T.O.P., plus he co-penned the song "You Strike My Main Nerve" from the previous album Bump City). Tower of Power was also the first Tower of Power album to feature future Saturday Night Live band leader Lenny Pickett, who was the youngest member of the band at the time, replacing original lead sax player Skip Mesquite. Also joining the lineup were organist/keyboardist Chester Thompson and guitarist Bruce Conte, who replaced original guitarist Willie James Fulton.

    初期の大ヒット作。全2作と同じようなモノですけどね。
    "What is Hip?" がサイコー!

    We Came to Play! is an album by Tower of Power released in 1978. It marked the debut of singer Michael Jeffries, who would stay with TOP through the mid-1980s. Also Steve Cropper (of Booker T. & The M.G.'s fame), produced this album. This album is also noted for featuring Victor Conte, the future founder of the controversial BALCO, on bass, and who is also the cousin of band guitarist, Bruce Conte. Also drummer Ron Beck would take a lead vocal spot on "Love Bug" which features founding T.O.P. drummer David Garibaldi on second drums. Garibaldi would return to the band on the next album, but both Conte's, Bruce and Victor, would not after this album.

    Back on the Streets is an album by Tower of Power released in 1979. This was their last album with Columbia Records. The title derives from the song "Back on the Streets Again" from their debut album East Bay Grease. David Garibaldi returns to the drummer's spot a third time, only to leave after this album, again. (He would not return again until 1998, and he's stayed for good since.) It also marked the debut of bassist Vito San Filippo and guitarist Danny Hoefer. This would be Hoefer's only album as a member of Tower of Power.
