Most of the funky stuff, but missing a few titles

And I agree, David Garibaldi is THE funkiest, baddest drummer that ever was! Check him out behind Chester on "Squib Cakes", off "Back To Oakland". If that isn't a drum solo to study, I can't think of what is. How he plays around the beat but stays spot-on is amazing. The 'Lenny' years were the best, I'd prefer a better selection of tunes. But, in their heyday, T-O-P was THE BEST, bar none. Tight? Yes, Indeed! Tasty? Give me some more of that East Bay Grease!! What Is Hip? T-O-P

Bad review

Was the person at All Music like 20 years old? To say that T.O.P. was more famous for backing up other groups shows the ignorance of youth, or at least a product of the 80's. Go watch their 1973 performance on Soul Train, and don't minimize their contribution to the music world.

America's Finest

The "official" ITunes review to the left is faint praise indeed; don't be dissuaded from checking out one of the best bands ever. This is music from the days when funky grooves came from great musicians playing great songs. Human rhythm beats drum machines every time, and here's the proof. For three decades and counting, these guys have set the standard. When they come to town, every musician who's not working is right down front -- ears wide open, watching like a hawk.

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,...
