#SaturdaySongsuasion featuring a “rock and roll band with horns” @chicagotheband

Good-morning kittens & dawgs! Yesterday’s Flashback Friday memories of my school days reminded me of the music I enjoyed. One of my favorite bands was the one DH introduced to me.

In the late 60s, this self-described “rock and roll band with horns” launched their politically charged, sometimes experimental sound before finding their niche in soft rock.

In the bands’ early days, Jimi Hendrix once told Parazaider, “Jeez, your horn players are like one set of lungs and your guitar player is better than me.” That’s quite the compliment considering Hendrix’s reputation on the guitar, eh?

Throughout the 70s and 80s, this group produced a continuous flow of Billboard singles and albums sensations, second to none other than the Beach Boys in success among American rock bands known as Chicago.


Chicago is the longest-running and most successful rock group with more than 100 million records sold; making them the world’s best-selling groups of all times. ~image borrowed~

Let’s give a listen to Chicago’s complete greatest hits album, The Story

    Wow, Cathy. my favorite Band of all time. When I was a preteen, my older brother took me with him to concert… Jimi Hendricks headlined the show. Billy Preston was second banana. But this little unknown group, Chicago came out as the warm up band! At that time they were called “Chicago Transit Authority,” which they shortened later to “Chicago.”

    I recall my brother looking at me, and saying. “You know what? Give ’em 6 months and they’re gonna be a force to reckon with!” Loved that concert!

    Good memories and thanks for this Saturday songsuasion!!! You rock!


Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a purrfect day!
