Tower Of Power
You Ought To Be Havin Fun – The Columbia/Epic Anthology
Great 35 track double CD that documents West Coast giants Tower of Power’s output on Columbia/Epic. By this point in their career they had incorporated the new musical directions of the time into their sound: still with the big brassy numbers and funky edge but bringing in some superb soulful ballads and modern dancers. ‘Just Make A Move Be Yourself’, ‘Souled Out’, ‘While We Went To The Moon’, ‘It’s So Nice’, ‘Because I Think The World Of You’, ‘You Ought To Be Having Fun’, ‘Am I A Fool’, ‘In Due Time’, ‘And You Know It’, ‘By Your Side’ and ‘You’ are standouts among the wealth of great tracks here.
