Songs of Summer, #5 - "So Very Hard to Go" (1973)

"So Very Hard to Go" is the perfect example of what used to be called a "regional hit."  It never got any higher than #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, but there's no question that it was a #1 hit in Northern California.  Tower of Power was an Oakland band, and their records always got a lot of airplay in Sacramento.  And this one was all over the radio during the summer of '73.

"So Very Hard to Go," the biggest hit Tower of Power ever came up with, and one that deserved to be #1 all over the country.

Yep, this one deserved to be #1 nationwide. I can assure you that it was very popular in SoCal, Jeff.
