Tower of Power

Tower of Power (or TOP for short) is an American R&B-based horn section and band, originating in Oakland, California, that has been performing for over 44 years. They are best known for their funky soul sound highlighted by a powerful horn section and precisely syncopated bass-guitar lines. 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)."

    If God made me a princess, why didn’t he take a little more time and make my hair so it wouldn’t snarl?
    —Robert N. Lee. Rowland V. Lee. Princess, Tower of London, while the Princess’ mother is combing her hair (1939)

    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)

    La foi consiste à croire ce que la raison ne croit pas ... Il ne suffit pas qu’une chose soit possible pour la croire. Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe ... It is not enough that a thing be possible for it to be believed.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
