CHICAGO
Amsterdam 1973 [no label, 1CD]

Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; September 7, 1973. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

Thanks to squareofnone for the fixes and for sharing the show at Dime.

squareofnone noted:

This is an excellent FM recording. There were some artifacts introduced by various transfers over the years that needed to be removed or repaired. Amplifying the left channel to match the right enhanced the stereo separation. It also helped bring Terry’s guitar to the forefront, a huge bonus in my opinion.

No EQ or Noise Reduction was used. No Music was lost. This is NOT meant to be the definitve edition.

Please share freely and play loud. Enjoy!

Thanks also to reinerarnold for the artwork.

  2. Chicago once was a powerhouse band. Terry Kath an all-time great guitarist, and this shows both of that. Thank you to all who brought this together.

  5. Terry Kath was the heart & soul of Chicago. The band was never the same after he died. Thanks for this gem!

  6. well they went 8 yrs with kath and 36 yrs without him. while people will always fondly remember his years they certainly had more hits without him than with him and have found many more fans since he ‘left’ the band than while he was with them. i personally prefer that first album more than anything since. altho i have seen them maybe 10 or so times live. never since 89 tho.
    i think its that 11th or 12th album that has donnie dacus from hair - the film version of the musical in the line up. so that is another fave of mine. u can see him on the cover with the long flowing blonde hair.

  8. well it looks like either a new idiot swinging on my sac or one of my old fans who is afraid to admit who he is with a changed id. never fails.. someone just has to forget his fucking medication and aim his attention towards me. i must have an idiot magnet in my pocket.
