When I was working on my Anaheim Kingsmen post last night, it occurred to me that, even though I love the exit of "So Very Hard to Go/Firebird Suite," I've never actually listened to the whole of Tower of Power's 1973 release, So Very Hard to Go. Thanks to Youtube, problem solved. What a beautiful song! So beautiful that I'm kicking Monday's Bedtime Music video to Tuesday night, just so I can put SVHTG in tonight.
This video, according to the Youtube notes, was taken at the North Sea Jazz Festival, which is an annual event in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I'm not sure exactly when this video was taken, but Tower of Power last appeared at the NSJF on 15 July 2006.
