Does the name ring a bell? And I don’t mean the transit system in the fine city of Chicago. I’m sure that most you have heard music from the group Chicago, but way back in the mid 60’s their first album came out and their name was indeed Chicago Transit Authority. That first album is a classic but unfortunately the City of Chicago sued them and made them change their name to just Chicago. (Loach! Did you have something to do with that??)
This band was one of the first ‘horn’ bands along with ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ and ‘Tower of Power’. But CTA was special for their musical abilities. Especially the guitar player who could have played with any band he chose!
So this week I’ll be playing a few of my favorites from this album.
So, sorry if I annoy you or drive you crazy but I plan to put selected songs from that album on my space this week. This was 60’s music at it’s best!! And it could have been good 70’s music too.
