Classic soul group Tower of Power are set to release their 25th album, Soul Side of Town, on June 1st. The band is also celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with some very interesting reissues, notably a 1973 live recording from Boston titled The East Bay Archive Vol. 1. Courtesy of the listing.
On June 1, Artistry Music, a Mack Avenue Records label, will release Soul Side of Town, Tower of Power’s 25th album – a cranial-crushing funk amalgamation of soul, vintage R&B, groove, pop and rock. It’s the centerpiece for a celebratory 50th Anniversary campaign that includes the re-release of four hard to find independent productions: The East Bay Archive Vol. 1 (a 1973 live recording from Boston), Oakland Zone (a 2008 release celebrated for the return of drummer David Garibaldi after several years away), Great American Soulbook (an all-star affair of soul classics featuring guests such as Joss Stone, Tom Jones, Sam Moore and Huey Lewis), and 40th Anniversary: Live At The Fillmore in San Francisco (a deluxe multi-disc CD/DVD collector’s item loaded with great new live renditions of hits plus interviews with alumni past and present).
