Back to Oakland album for sale Product Description



Back to Oakland album for sale by Tower Of Power was released Oct 25, 1988 on the Warner Bros. label. Vocalist Lenny Williams is the guiding light through R&B-flavored cuts like the bouncing "Don't Change Horses (In the Middle of the Stream)" and the dramatic ballad "Just When We Start Makin' It." It's the signature instrumental "Squib Cakes," however, that opens the floodgates to all the funky power that the band can muster; it's the group's premiere showcase, with hearty contributions from keyboardist Chester Thompson, drummer David Garibaldi, and the entire stellar horn section. Back to Oakland CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs.   ...See Full Description

A Timeless Classic
Back to Oakland buy CD music As a teenager in New York I joined a band called the New Message. We listened to EWF, Chicago, Billy Cobham and other jazz greats. But this album pierced the souls of us all. From the intro to Squib Cakes, we marveled at the horn arrangements, Chester's keyboard and the velvet voice of Lenny Williams. I still have the original LP, but I need the CD to reminiscence and to marvel once again.

Should be in your ipod
Back to Oakland songs This is my favorite CD of all-time, with Lenny Williams on vocals and the horn arrangments by Greg Adams are awesome. Back to Oakland album for sale I went over to Sausalito,Ca while in San Francisco just to feel the vibe from the studio and was wondering what it was like during the recording of this album. "Below us, all the City Lights" and "Time will Tell" are a great love songs and my favorites. I still have the cassette and vinyl and love the Bay Bridge and highway sign on the cover.

8 Track
I bought this on 8 track back in '69-'70 after I bought my new '69 Dodge RT with an 8 track player. The tape was stolen from me several years later, but I've never forgoten that great sound. Enjoy everyone.
