East Bay Grease

I've been watching & waiting for this album, so glad you finally have it available. It's the best of the East Bay music of the 70's. But um, the album title is East Bay Grease, not East Grease Bay. From a former East Bay resident.

All the power with none of the polish

If you love TOP as much as I do, there's no such thing as a bad Tower of Power album. That being said, East Grease Bay is only for people who are already big fans of the band. Rufus miller has a good voice, but should have learned how to control himself. Though it certainly has the volume and punchy horn section of their later albums, it lacks the polish and control of them. If you're a big fan who wants to hear the group when they were still learning, East Grease Bay is worth your time and money. But if you're a first time listener, it's better to go with the Lenny Williams era issues, as well as their brilliant 1999 live album, Soul Vaccination: Tower of Power Live.

Blows Away the Competition

Growing up in the Bay Area in the late 60's and early 70's, I was blessed to see the original line up played many venues in the area. I saw them no less that 6 times during the 1970 -1972 time frame and each time there was no doubt WHO was in control of the audience, and I felt sorry for some of the acts that followed (including Sly and the Family Stone and Santana to name two) because they were going to force you to put on a great show or die!! This is a must have album for anyone who was around when Tower of Power became mainstream during this time period. It will WOW you today as it did us more than 35 years ago.
