  5. Apologies to interrupt the people who use this site as a place to flaunt their sexual and racial anxieties, but I would like to speak to anyone out there who cares about music.

    This sounds much more like a good quality audience recording than a soundboard. Vocals have a distant quality, instruments a not distinct and here is a lot of audience noise. As an audience recording it does a good job of capturing the excitement and probably represents what a well positioned audience member heard from Chicago back then.

  15. This live Chicago recording is well worth hearing for any fan of their early music. Recorded two years after their Carnegie Hall live album, it sounds like a tighter, hungrier band in a smaller venue which suits them better. The rhythm section is ferocious, the horn section adds to the excitement with interesting arrangements and good solos, and the three lead singers are in good form. I recommend “State of the Union” (which I find much more compelling than the studio version) and “Questions 67 & 68″.

    By DD on Mar 26, 2021

  19. Corey- that testicle on your chin is almost as useful to you as these nuts on your chin.

    By DD on Mar 26, 2021

  20. Corey- those teamster’s nuts on your chin are useful to you.
