Formed in 1967 in Oakland, California, USA, this durable funky soul group - Rufus Miller (vocals), Greg Adams (trumpet), Emilio ‘Mimi’ Castillo (Detroit, Michigan, USA; saxophone), Steve Kupka (saxophone), Lenny Pickett (saxophone), David Padron (trumpet), Mic Gillette (horns), Willie Fulton (guitar), Francis Prestia (bass), Brent Byers (percussion) and David Garibaldi (drums) - was originally known as the Motowns/Motown Soul Band. One of several Bay Area outfits preferring soul to its prevalent acid-rock sound, Tower Of Power’s debut album, East Bay Grease, followed several popular appearances at San Francisco’s Fillmore auditorium. Having now signed to the Warner Brothers Records label, the group’s next two albums, Bump City and Tower Of Power, produced a hit single each in ‘You’re Still A Young Man’ and ‘So Very Hard To Go’, but their progress was hampered by a recurring vocalist problem.
