Tower of Power

I just had the pleasure of hearing this band live for the first time.
Wow.
I would suggest any analog title this band cut, especially live.

It's been a couple of years, but I've seen them a couple of times and I know what you're talking about CV.
Those guys really know how to put a program together and IMHO, there's a lot of bands that could take a few lessons from TOP.
I guess now days, they have folks that help to put together a great show and maybe that's why they seem so cookie cutter.

I can't say that I know all their albums but from the ones I'm familiar with, I'd put a vote in for "Back to Oakland". Killer stuff from the mid 70's like "Don't Change Horses" that makes you wanta do "The Slide"!

In addition to "Back to Oakland", might I suggest the eponymous, "Tower of Power"...most excellent!
