Friday Music on Thursday

By CG IT ·
cuz I couldn't wait....and I have been really busy at work and haven't posted here in a while...

ok so I dusted off the old Chicago albums, yep vinyl, and am converting them to digital...came across some songs I forgot about but thought were really cool for the time. Their off the Chicago III album and it's a series of short songs tied together into one big one. Sounds like one song but their really 5 individual songs. It's all about one's day ...

1. Hard Rising in the Morning without Breakfast 1 minute 52 seconds
2. Off to Work 45 seconds
3. Falling Out 53 seconds
4. Dreaming Home 49 seconds
5 Morning Blue Again 1 minute 11 seconds.

So thought I would share some off hit music that I thought was cool way back when. Chicago was one of only a few groups that used a horn section back then which in my book gave them a distinct sound and more versatility than bands with just guitars and drums.

Chicago is one band that I've continually like their music for 3 decades.

Some of their ballads were pretty good

by CG IT In reply to Gotta agree with you ther ...

but I gotta agree, that's all they did after a while. Their early music was far better than their later ones. Heard recently their doing gigs using big band numbers... that ought to be something...

What a coincidence!

I was listening to some Chicago just the other nite! This after I found an old cassette in a drawer. Yep. I too have all the old vinyl.

Thinking back on that time got me thinking of Moody Blues.

I think I'll play a buncha that tonite.
Damn. I wish I still had the old quadraphonic 8-tracks with the player and speakers! Every Good Boy Deserves Favor in quad was killer. :-)

Must be nostagia week....

Who'd a thought a lot of people here liked Chicago? I certainly didn't think many here even heard of Chicago cuz I consider myself an old fart and most IT guys I've run into are in their 20s and 30s who weren't even born in the 70s.

fart, and proud of it. Someone, and only us old farts will remember who, once said:
"I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience."

Don't know what to call young farts.
