Chicago Transit Authority ~ Chicago

Before they became the slick 'lurve' song unit of the mid to late Seventies (voiced exclusively by Bassist and Lead Vocalist Peter Cetera) - CHICAGO used to call themselves the all-together cooler CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY - and that's where this hip little CD reissue comes in.

If anything (relistening to it in 2014) - you can imagine that this 1971 album is a bit of a secret stepping point for so many new writers and bands - because after 40 minutes with it you can 'so' hear how… Read more
