    That was my dad’s favorite song when I was growing up. I hate it.

    I first saw Chicago Transit Authority (Chicago's original name, prior to the actual CTA forcing them to change it) on Thanksgiving weekend 1968 at the Seattle Opera House.

    I knew nothing about them but they made a huge impression. It was the first time I remember that much horn in rock music.

    They were the lead in group that night prior to Janis Joplin in one of her last tour appearances with Big Brother and the Holding Company. They were playing music from the Cheap Thrills album.

    Well, I guess I can deduce our relative ages then, sonny!!


    There were some really good tunes on that album, this one not-withstanding.


    Guess I was lucky. The only records of my Dad that I remember were Spike Jones. Love 'em to this day!

    Never Saw Chicago. I did see Janis and Big Brother at the San Jose Rock Festival in the spring of 1967. We printed up a few cards identifying us as reporters for a small underground paper at Western Washington, drove down from Bellingham and were able to talk our way into a couple of sessions!

    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    I like that tune, though not a fan of Nirvana or that whole genre in general.


    And it's about time to go check the break room for food!!
