Album Review

Edward McGee turned in mostly above-average performances on their first post-Lenny Williams release, but it was the beginning of the end for the group. With funk losing its foothold among R&B audiences, they couldn't keep it together. Hearing this on compact disc (and it's not one of Columbia's better mastering jobs) reveals that McGee was an energetic, exuberant vocalist who held his own on uptempo tunes like "You Ought To Be Havin' Fun" and the title song, but lacked Williams' range or tonal quality on ballads. The group always had a weakness for ponderous message cuts, and "Can't Stand To See The Slaughter" and "While We Went To The Moon" were well-intentioned but clumsy tracks. This was almost The Tower of Power's swan song.

Favorite in Pasadena

I loved this album in the 70's and still do. Its my favorite of theirs .TOP never plays any of the songs in concert. Wish they did. I know their new singer wouldnt sound the same so they should get someone to sing those tracks.I was 16 when it came out so it beat th hell out of disco back then. it was big in so cal

Eddie's an Egotistical Jerk

The only tracks worth listening to on this album are "Ain't Nothin'" and "You Ought to Be Having Fun." I was in a horn band with McGee in the late '80s early '90s and he was a drag. A few members of my group went to see Tower and they mentioned that Eddie was in our group. The band said, "good luck." This album almost did kill Tower.

Solid TOP

1st off TOP is great! On every album there is at least 1 or 2 songs that one cannot help to just feel deep down in your gut if you LOVE the F-U-N-K. For me, "By Your Side" is the track on this album. This may not be their best album as a whole, but I'll put a couple of these tracks up there to stand up with any of their other work.

The renowned horn-driven funk outfit Tower of Power have been issuing albums and touring the world steadily since the early '70s, in addition to backing up countless other musicians. The group's leader since the beginning has always been tenor saxophonist Emilio Castillo, who was born in Detroit but opted to pursue his musical dreams in Oakland, California. It was in Oakland that Castillo put together a group called the Motowns, which, as their name suggested, specialized in '60s-era soul. In 1967,...
