With getting all the ones from the library when did you have time to burn them? Plus doing both of your blogs and working!

Chicago V and VII are a couple favorites of mine. I really dig the jazzy stuff on VII. It displays the versatility of guitarist, Terry Kath, and drummer Danny Seraphine.

With V, I prefer the album cuts over the singles. Now That You've Gone and Goodbye are particular favorites of mine. And State of the Union shows what an underrated monster of a bass player Peter Cetera once was.

I of course also have to give you props for the Steve Hackett material you picked up. That cat has some monster talent

I almost bought Chicago III while I was there, but the vinyl was scratched to hell, so wasn't even worth getting.

I haven't yet the chance to sit down to listen to the Chicago albums. When I do, I'll keep in mind about your thoughts about these records.
