    Thanks for posting. That was a big deal album for us youngsters, if you couldn't go outside you put that record on. I still love it as much as ever.

    Terry Kath perhaps the greatest guitarist of all.

    I saw CTA just as the first album was getting legs, in the gym at Upper Merion High School outside Philly in 1969. I was right at the stage in front of Kath. Came away a true believer, that band was tight as hell and Kath was a god.

    After Terry died and the band became an even bigger hit machine, I lost interest. But a big band doing straight up rock - that was something to see.

    +1 - I absolutely wore this album out back when I was a young lad. :)

    Yes, Chicago had many hits after Terry died.....but the "soul" of the band died with him.

    I couldn't get my HS friends to dig that album...we were all about Jimi, Traffic, Led Zeppelin....they thought the horn stuff wasn't cool.

    Should have told them who wrote, "I'm a Man".
