Back when Chicago was a progressive rock band
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.
California Transit Authority with Danny Seraphine :
Terry Kath perhaps the greatest guitarist of all.
Classic album. We played 25 or 6 to 4 in Jr High Band.
One of the best rock songs (and performances) EVER!
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.
a great song .
Should have told them who wrote, "I'm a Man".
