Tower of Power have had their ups and downs as a recording act during a career that's still rolling over 45 years on, but very rarely has anyone disputed their strength as a live band, and those who doubt the power of Oakland's perennial funk machine will get schooled in a big way with this archival release. On May 14, 1974, Tower of Power rolled into Long Island's Ultrasonic Studios to cut a live set for broadcast on Hempstead's WLIR-FM, and nearly four decades later this performance has finally been given an authorized release as Hipper Than Hip: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow (Live - On the Air & In the Studio 1974). That title sure is clumsy, but Tower of Power weren't the night the tapes rolled for this show.
