Back To Oakland is the fourth album by Bay Area based band Tower of Power, released in spring 1974. Tower of Power followed their self-titled gold album with (as said by many critics) an even better album. This record had tougher, funkier and better-produced cuts, stronger vocals from Lenny Williams (who was more comfortable as their lead singer), and included an excellent ballad in "Time Will Tell," and a rousing tempo in "Don't Change Horses (In the Middle of a Stream)".

The Tower of Power horn section reaffirmed its reputation in both Soul and Pop circles. Back To Oakland was voted by Modern Drummer Magazine as one of the most important recordings for drummers to listen to.
