All Music Guide - Jason Lymangrover
2013's Original Album Series offers five Tower of Power albums from the peak of their career -- 1972 to 1975 -- for a budget price. Packaging is basic to save costs, with each album in a paper sleeve that replicates the artwork. The funk group was in their absolute prime with singer Lenny Williams, and Tower of Power, Back to Oakland, and Urban Renewal are essentials, while In the Slot, and Bump City have some hot moments as well.
