4.0 out of 5 stars Listen (tr 5), 30 May 2010
This review is from: Chicago Transit Authority (Audio CD)
If you like powerhouse rock, featuring brass and keyboards as well as guitars and drums etc, played by gifted musicians and vocalists and have never heard the Chicago Transit Authority, you are in for a treat. Tracks 1 to 6 are exquisitly crafted songs with perfectly executed and timed layers of vocals, guitars, percussion and brass. Track 7 may be technically clever but, imho, is not in keeping with the previous tracks and is best passed over - but hey, you may disagree with me and find you love it! Tracks 8 & 9 bring the album back into line, followed by 10 and 11 which include recorded extracts from a civil rights protest - sits slightly odd now but possibly relevant in 1968 and, obviously, important to the band at the time. (Track 11 actually turns out to be quite good.) The album closes with a 14 minute jazz/rock improvisation. Although the album is over 40 years old, it still sounds to me as fresh and vital as it did when I first bought it in vinyl back in 1970.
