A flawless copy of this extremely elusive 1977.

"Tower of Power" jumps to mind when you think of Northern California Soul gatherings. But this 1971 Stockton born team are right up their with the very best that the Bay Area ever spawned.
A heady mix of Soulful steppers, Sweet Soul ballad, Boogie Funkers.. every track seamlessly created on a carpet of brass, guitar, two saxophones, Congas & Drums and silky vocal authenticity. These guys although not as well known were more than a match for the huge reputation Tower Of Power had enjoyed.

Check out the recorded sample of this classy 10 man team, we think you'll agree this assemble of Soul are yet another addition to the impressive listing of standout Bay Area Soul groups.

Unfortunately their vinyl material passed by almost unnoticed by the USA public..It was not until those pioneering European DJ's picked up on "He's Coming" "Bionic Love Affair" etc that this talented 10 man team came into the Soul collectors headlights.

This LP has always been hard to find, before you today is a flawless copy. A rare opportunity indeed to own one of the most wanted Soul group albums of the 70's.
