Today begins the countdown to the end of the Chicago Chronicles. There are 6 songs left and they're all epic musical monsters. Week 1 begins with one hell of an album cut from the debut album. The tight rhythm section—those drums — and, man, that bass. That blonde cat plays some seriously monstrous bass … and it’s all providing a platform for Chicago guitarist Terry Kath to weave a spell and mesmerize the crowd with his incredible skills. Heck, the vocals don’t even start until they are almost 5½ minutes into the song. And the horns … the glorious horns that dance around the vocals and the guitar solos, they set this band apart from their peers. When people scoff in disbelief after being told that Chicago used to open for the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, 1969’s Chicago Transit Authority is the album I pull out, and “Poem 58” is the “go to” song. This is the “penny drop” song that causes people who only think they know Chicago’s music to go, “Oh, I get it now! There’s a lot more to this band than I realized.”

Hmmmm.......
Based on that last statement, rather than exclaim "Great Scott!!", perhaps it would be more fitting to reiterate as "Great David Clayton Thomas!"......Here's hoping! ;)

 

Thanks for this killer piece!

Holy crap. The venue for this song is amazing. You might be the best to ever do it.
