Happy birthday, Tower of Power. I was delighted to find some vids on YouTube of the band in its early days.
Knock Yourself Out, 1973. Check out Lenny’s suit!
Knock Yourself Out, 2006. Featuring the original rhythm section (Garibaldi + Rocco + Chester) w/Santana.
What is Hip?, 1973ish? White tails and limbs akimbo.
What is Hip?, 2006. Same show as above w/Santana.
Soul with a Capital S, 2006.
Diggin’ on James Brown, 2008. Hah! Larry Braggs. I love TOP’s current front man.
Only so Much Oil in the Ground, 2006. “No excuse for our abuse,” from Urban Renewal (1975).
National Anthem, 2006. Gorgeous. I think that one commenter was right, there is a bit of You’re Still a Young Man laid in at the end. Le sigh.
Oakland Stroke, 2006. Love Roger on keys.
