Emilio Castillo, Francis Rocco Prestia, "Doc" Kupka and the boys are back for another session of family- style funk. As in their formative years, Tower of Power lays it down with the idea that more is better. Perhaps as a result of maintaining the same personnel for so many years, the sound here is tight, clean and hard-hitting. Often utilizing groups of singers, and a full horn section, many of the songs transcend the usual "get down and party" message of most funk bands. "Unconditional Love" is about finally growing up enough to love, "Rhythm and Business" about trying to hang onto your heart in a materialistic world. These guys know all there is to know about R & B and on RHYTHM & BUSINESS they combine their musical passion, knowledge and abilities into that one-of-a-kind Tower of Power sound.
