You Ought To Be Havin Fun: The Columbia/Epic Anthology



  • Solid 2-CD by the legendary Tower Of Power, considered one of the premier funk’n’soul’n’jazz bands of the past five decades.
  • 35-track collection focusing on two specific periods of the internationally-renowned group’s career.
  • Disc 1 consists of cuts from ‘Ain’t Nothin’ Stoppin’ Us Now’, ‘We Came To Play’ and ‘Back On The Streets’, the three albums released by Columbia Records between 1976-1979.
  • Disc 2 is derived from four albums – ‘Monster On A Leash’, ‘T.O.P.’, ‘Souled Out’ and ‘Rhythm & Business’, released by Epic Records between 1991-1997.

Formed initially in 1968 in Oakland, California, they signed to Warner Brothers in 1971, the horn-dominated band scored a string of hit singles and best-selling albums. By the mid-’70s, Tower Of Power signed with Columbia Records, self-producing their debut set then working with Stax musical legend Steve Cropper on their second LP and finally with Chicago arranger/producer Richard Evans and Detroit hitmaker McKinley Jackson on their third Columbia album. During the ‘80s, the band toured worldwide extensively before signing a new contract with Epic Records in 1991, resulting in four albums enthusiastically appreciated by their global audience.

Co-produced by David Nathan and distinguished US writer/ musicologist Kevin Goins who provided extensive liner notes.
