Album Review

The recordings on Soul Vaccination: Live were made during Tower of Power's 1998 tour. It wasn't a reunion tour, since ToP never really went away, but they nevertheless hauled such staples as "What Is Hip," along with selection from latter-day albums. If Soul Vaccination is to be trusted, it was an enjoyable but not particularly noteworthy jaunt through the states. Nevertheless, ToP's playing was supple and lively enough to make it an enjoyable listen for hardcore fans, even if it's not memorable enough to make its way onto the stereo that often.

Soul Vaccination

This record is freakin' amazing! I have seen TOP live and this record does a great job in capturing the vibe of the band in a live setting. "Diggin' On James Brown" is one of my favorites. Of course there is the classic "You're Still a Young Man" which is awesome. If you are a fan of great horns and an incredibly tight rhythm section than this band is hard to beat. "Soul Vaccination" and "Soul With a Capital 'S'" was tight as ever. By the way, watching DB play the drums live was a life experience. Dude was chomping on gum and sitting in the pocket with incredible accuracy. I love these guys!!! I've turned my 10 year old on to them and he thinks they are the best. I hope they are around for many more years.

This is FUNKED UP!

This is "FUNKED UP I CAN"T STAND-IT"! Buy this c.d.,u wont stop bumping...TOWER OF POWER is so strong live this c.d. really shows u their energy.....

Other two are five stars- no difference here

I have rarely heard a band that sounds as good (maybe better) without a studio. Great, great album. If you are a ToP fan, hands down buy it. If you're new to the band.... buy it, but be prepared. It is just great music, no matter how you look at it. These guys can really get creative and different with their sound, something so rare in a lot of today's bands. I definitely reccomend it to anyone.
