    I bought this vinyl album see the link below about 3 years ago from subsequently closed HMV store on Oxford street in central London although I have NEVER played it as I don't have a record player. I thought the album looked pretty cool with a large picture of Terry playing his axe and I was hoping a CD version of the album existed but I never saw one.

    I have the first two Chicago albums on cds plus a US radio broadcast from 1970.

    Sorry dudes I can't post the link.

    I saw Chicago live at the time of their U.K. number one “If you leave me now”, a wonderful song which unfortunately led to a procession of ballads which in my opinion seemed to get more and more middle of the road. Terry’s innovative guitar on the first Chicago albums seemed a world away.

    That is the problem I have with Chicago the band it was 'brass heavy' and to many love ballads.

    Terry agreed and was about to launch his solo career without the brass section, but unfortunately the accident happened and we will never know what his band would have sounded like.

    Yeah shame Terry didn't form a more blues/rock orientated band (electric guitar dominated) earlier in his musical career although Chicago was a popular and an established band by 1970 and he may not have been willing to walk away from the band during the early 1970s?. Chicago was possibly similar to Blood Sweat And Tears in being a 'brass heavy' outfit and featuring a competent and interesting musician in Al Kooper being a guitarist/organist/singer/song writer/producer and musical arranger.

    There's a full length concert on Youtube from 1970, there are others but this one stands out. It's a Bill Graham production.



    I've also seen a documentary on him. It came out a few years ago. His daughter and wife are featured. It's free to watch on the web or if you have IMDB on your media player like a Amazon Firestick you can watch it there as well.
