‘Soul Side Of Town’ marks Oakland legends Tower Of Power’s 50th Anniversary and founding members Emilio Castillo and Stephen “Doc” Kupka are responsible for the 14 original tracks here. ‘Do You Like That’ is timeless – classic T.O.P – razor sharp horns, bubbling bass and a soulful, funky, soaring melody that rules the dancefloor, ‘East Bay With Soul’ is a thundering, rapid fire funker, while the ballad ‘Love Must Be Patient And kind’ shows the more mellow side. ‘Butter Fried’ is a big, heavy funk number that allows Roger Smith to give the Hammond B3 some welly, while ‘Let it Go’ sounds like the guys sent themselves back to 1979 to revisit a classic mid tempo soul effort. ‘After Hours’ throws it back to classic funky, jazzy Tower of People while ‘Can’t Stop Thinking About You’ again shows the chilled side of the band. ‘East Bay! Oakland Style’ bookends the set with a signature hard, brassy funk number. Great stuff.
