Step Up Tracklist:
Just listen with an open heart. Pure joy, grooves for days, enlighten your life. Suddenly I don't mind being sequestered at home as much. Let T.O.P. Be the virus that spreads Pure Joy around the world. Thank you gentlemen.
The short intro & outro prove one thing: Tower of Power should drop the endless carousel of lead singers and put out the baddest instrumental Soul/Funk album ever heard by mankind! The singer is mediocre as is the lyric-writing. Come on, Band - Think out of the box you've been in since 1977. Good is not acceptable when great is possible.
T.O.P. = Keeping the funk alive and kickin fantastic horns, great drumming grooves and OVERALL fabulous vocals. I met David when I was 15 years old and you have gotten way betted with age hey like fine wine bro. the Tower Of Power sound is a signature sound that simply can't be duplicated! Thanks to ALL Of You
I became a TOP fan _AFTER_ "So Very Hard To Go." Not that I thought it was a bad song, in fact, I kind of liked it. THEN, I saw TOP on "Midnight Special." TOP live? What's not to love? Lenny Pickett was a whirling dervish - he must have had the first wireless bell mic in existence, else he'd have gotten tripped up in mic cord somehow. Anyway, seeing TOP on television, then later in many live performances created a love affair between me and them that continues to this day. And now there's a new album to hear!
WOW this is the great Tower Of Power music that we all grew up on. These guy just keep getting better & better. This is some really 👏 👏👏 awesome “chopped funk” music. Greatness once again. RN from Anchorage, Alaska.
