TOWER OF POWER | LIVE AND IN LIVING COLOR (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
For over four decades, Tower Of Power have been the one of the
premier soul, funk and rock bands of our time. Captivating audiences all over
the world, the mighty Bay Area ensemble continues to tour extensively and
release great music as proven with their 1976 smash “Live And In Living Color.“
“Live And In Living Color” reigns as one of the most notable
live albums in funk history. With six super long jams from the pens of founders
Emilio Castillo (alto sax/vocals) and Stephen Kupka (baritone sax/vocals), the
Lp did well on the r&b radio formats as well as rock and jazz outlets
across the country. Especially with the incredible live version of their top
charting smash "What Is Hip?"
Further T.O.P. champions like “Knock Yourself Out”, “Down To
The Nightclub” and the soulful ballad grooves of "You’re Still A Young
Man” and “Sparkling In The Sand” made this album truly memorable.
Long time member David Garibaldi kicks out his awesome TOP
drum sound on this masterwork, along with the incredible horn attack of
Castillo and Kupka, with the late great Mic Gillette. Check out Chester
Thompson's thrilling keyboard stylings along side the solid vocal artistry of
Hubert Tubbs....truly a winning sound from these Oakland superstars.
Friday Music is no stranger to the soulful and funk sounds
