Great Sounds from 1973!!!!

"By 1973, at the tender age of 15, I had given up on most "popular music." Most of what Top 40 radio played just seemed lame to me. I was mostly into old Motown and other Classic Soul Sounds. I heard "So Very Hard To Go" on the radio and thought, "What a great tune!' I later heard "This Time Its Real" and managed to tape it off the radio and again was struck by what a great song it was. I finally got around to buying the CD in 2000. What a great album. It is a good mix of slower songs and upbeat funk numbers. "Clever Girl" and "Will I Ever Find A Love" are both ballads and two of my favorites from the album.

Listening to this album, along with the Crusaders "Unsung Heroes" also from 1973 shows just how lame a lot of the other music coming out of the radio (Helen Reddy, Olivia Newton-John etc) was at that time. Even halfway decent songs like Elton John's "Daniel", Dobie Gray's "Drift Away" and Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" got overplayed to death. Does anyone remember the horrid "Playground of my Mind" by Clint Holmes?

Though Chicago was very good at what they did, Tower of Power and the Crusaders went to places Chicago could only dream of.

Anyway, I digress. This is a great album and a great lost 70's classic."

"If I may make up a word, then, this is FUNKTIFICATION TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL!!!! While listening to "Clever Girl" on an online radio station, I fell in love with the song. The vocalist was clear, the horns rocked (I am a Trumpet player, so, the screaming Trumpets grabbed my attention!!). I did some research and found out the group was the same group to release "You're Still A Young Man", just with a new singer, Lenny Williams. I found this CD and haven't stopped playing it!!! I would recommend this CD to ANYONE!!! Oh, and you will love Tower Of Power's trademark, THAT MONSTER HORN SECTION!!!!! Just listen to "Soul Vaccination" and you will do as Lenny Williams suggest. Get in line to get yours because I got mine!!"

"I am 44; a 'baby boomer'. This baby boomer has some very fond memories connected to songs like TOP's So Very Hard To Go. I was doing a bit of grocery shoping the other day, when all of a sudden this song deliciously filled my ear canals. You should have seen the looks I was getting, as I swayed down the canned vegetables aisle. Made me want to pull on some hip huggers! Talk about 'ear-candy'!"
