All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Sure, Tower of Power best-ofs are pretty thick on the ground these days. But if you want a quick overview of the catalog's high points and don't want to shell out thirty bucks for Rhino's excellent two-disc anthology or even $11.00 for the one-disc Warner Years collection, this ten-track, eight-dollar quickie is for you.
