KCLS patron Zeldazoo has a review of "Tower of Power's 40th Anniversary" album below me. I lived in San Francisco for many of years that Tower of Power was producing their most popular albums. Like Zeldazoon I cannot believe that such a large musical group has stayed together for so long. One of their singers was convicted of a very serious crime, but has been released now. No matter who left the group the replacements never could change the sound of all their original hit songs. I have never seen them live, but I understand from family members who have, they blow out the doors. I can't recommend a better soul group than Tower of Power!

This group has been blowing them away since 1968. One of the tightest group of horns you will ever hear. Many members have come and gone. But a core group of four originals (even a couple of them have come and gone at times) has held it all together this many years. This 40th Anniversary CD brings many of them back on stage together.
The DVD of the concert is just icing on the cake. Well worth a listen.
