You're still a young man, baby Whoo-ooh, don't waste your time You're still a young man, baby Whoo-ooh, don't waste your time
Down on my knees, Heart in hand I was accused of being too young, But I'm not so young
Can't you understand That I think like a man? You're still a young man, baby Whoo-ooh, don't waste your time
You're still a young man, baby Whoo-ooh, don't waste your time Back once again, Begging you please
Darling, think twice about me, 'Cause I'm not so bad I could make you happy, I'm not a mad lad
(You're too young to love) If you and I could be together (You're too young to love) I'd get to you through any weather
(You're too young to love) I love you and I love you only
(You're too young to love) I'd never leave you lonely You're too young, whoo-ooh, Don't waste your time
The damage is done, You'll see that you're wrong You'll wake up wondering Just how well I've done
Well, I've done all right Yes, there are some girls But I'd drop them on sight, Just for you
Because I love you You're still a young man, baby Whoo-ooh, don't waste your time...

Eugene from Garden Grove, CaThe most played song by soul bands with a horn section since it first hit in July of 1972. That is the trumpet intro that shows off the beautiful power of a great lead trumpet sound. The song intro is a true test in whether the trumpet player has the sound power, endurance, control and musicality. Mic Gillette and Greg Adams were the trumpet players who started that sound for innumerable players to be inspired to get their musicianship together. I’m sure the current trumpet duo of Sal and Adolfo played the song multitudes of times in cover bands before joining Tower of Power.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn July 9th 1972, "You're Still A Young Man" by the Tower of Power entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #81; and on September 10th, 1972 it peaked at #29 (for 2 weeks) and spent 12 weeks on the Top 100... It reached #24 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart... Between 1972 and 1976 the Oakland-based group had eight Top 100 records, with "So Very Hard To Go" being their biggest hit, it peaked at #17 on the Top 100 and #11 on the R&B Singles chart.
Spence from Brooklyn, NyMic Gilette And Greg Adams' overture-esque intro is phenomenal!
Rockie from Oregon City, OrCheck out the live album by Little Feet , "Waiting For Columbus" . The tower Of Power horn section is on the album & were on tour with them . Note: "Spanish Moon" (tight!)

Bobby from Lagunitas, CaCoo coo coo choo Mrs Robinson
Guy from Woodinville, WaI'm not a big brass fan, but this is a fantastic demonstration of the power of horns. Tower of Power!
Evan from Flower Mound, TxThis is usually in Tower of Power's encore, and most of the time T.O.P.'s last song in their concert.
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
