  1. I'm seventy now, way back in time me and my mates every Saturday would get the bus into town and head straight for the record store to buy the latest sounds, usually pop, I had heard this song on the radio and raved about it, everyone hated it, but I bought the album but didn't tell anyone, I just wore it out with constant playing , went back on my own to get the CTA first album, always been two of my favorite go to albums, still are, when the wife goes out, they come out, and played at volume.

  2. Terry Kath played the most simplistic pentatonic scales in his hey day … Now we have Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, That make Terry look a mere hamster on a wheel.

  3. I'm 60 and I remember my mom walking into our apartment and putting the first Chicago album in my dad's hand and saying "you have to hear this record!"Thank God my parents loved good music!

  4. When he does the woonwoo nwoomwoo at 4:24 minutes,, never ever seen that in my lifetime by another guitarist. NOT to take away all of the other greatness he had as a guitar player in the whole performance. The whole thing is great. I worshiped his music so much; I felt a part of my life gone from me when we lost HIM.

  5. Yes it’s live. No mess ups, no over dubs, no re takes, no gimmicks. No pyrotechnics, no tits and ass. No make up, no effects. Just some really talented frigging dudes kicking some musical ass.

  6. Terry Kath…one of the most soulful, technically proficient, and inspirational guitarists ever. As many people here have stated, extremely underrated. Chicago in their prime were a tremendous band. Thanks for posting this.
