320 Kbps Vinyl Rip

Symphonic Powerrock from the Netherlands. The band had a big hit in Holland with "See You Tonight" and a minor hit with "Goin' Home". The vocals from Marian Pijnaker are increddible strong and the orchestration from Dick Bakker and Hans Hollestelle are ELO-esque. Most of the album written by Catmusic who are famous of their own but under other names (Catapult, Woodpeckers from Space, Videokids, Monotones & the Surfers just to name a few).
The album was quite succesfull but a second album was never recorded. Tower disbanded and Marian Pijnaker (vocals) and Cor van der Hoogt (Guitar & Vocals) continued as Split Decision. They released one single "Action" [download] but could not reproduce the succes of tower.
Listen to the power of Tower!
