There have been several lead vocalists, the most famous being Lenny Williams, who fronted the band between early 1973 and late 1974, the period of their greatest commercial success. Their biggest hits include "You're Still A Young Man", "So Very Hard To Go","Soul With a Capital S", "Soul Vaccination", "What Is Hip?", and "Don't Change Horses (In the Middle of a Stream)."

Famous quotes containing the words tower of, power and/or tower:

    So was produced this tragedy
    In a far tower of ivory
    Where, O young men, late in the night
    All you who drink light and stroke the air
    Come back, seeking the night, and cry
    To strict Rapunzel to let down her hair.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    A speech is poetry: cadence, rhythm, imagery, sweep! A speech reminds us that words, like children, have the power to make dance the dullest beanbag of a heart.
    Peggy Noonan (b. 1950)

    All over France, in every city there stand cathedrals like this one, triumphant monuments of the past. They tower over the homes of our people like mighty guardians, keeping alive the invincible faith of the Christian. Every arch, every column, every statue is a carved leaf out of our history, a book in stone, glorifying the spirit of France.
    Sonya Levien (1895–1960)
