Chicago transit authority by Chicago (Musical group)( Recording )

25 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chicago: Terry Kath (vocals, guitar); Robert Lamm (vocals, keyboards); Walter Parazaider (winds, background vocals); Lee Loughnane (trumpet, background vocals); James Pankow (trombone); Daniel Seraphine (drums). Recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, New York in January 1969. Originally released on Columbia (GP-8). Includes liner notes by David Wild. It might come as a surprise to anyone familiar only with their satin-smooth soft-rock hits, but when Chicago first formed in 1967, they were actually doing something new, cool, and interesting: rock & roll with a fully-integrated jazz horn section. 1969's CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY has two of the group's early hits, "Beginnings" and "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" but it also includes some of their most audacious material ever, notably Terry Kath's seven-minute "Free-Form Guitar," a free jazz improvisation for heavily distorted electric guitar that--no kidding--would not sound out of place on an early Sonic Youth album, and the politically-charged, side-long suite comprised of "Prologue," "Someday (August 28, 1968)," and "Liberation," the closest Chicago ever came to a true jazz-rock synthesis. Chicago's later work deserves many of the critical brickbats it's received, but CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY is a genuinely interesting album
