I meant to say Pink Floyd not just Pink. Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. Masterpieces!

How I miss when artists would produce albums, some new artists try to but its not the same, I still have to listen to these start to finish, any other way doesn't do it justice. Not just random songs thrown together to make an album, filled with catchy songs with the same structure and repetitive hooks. Zeppelin didn't even care about "singles", here's our album, take what you want off it, but we're not editing a 8min song down to 4 to suit radio's agenda.

If you get only one recording from these guys, by all means get Chicago V. I have yet to hear another album by a US-based rock band quite like this one. This took them from being a great band to one of rock's immortals. The mix of music on this is incredible, with social and political commentary, jazz, serious hard rock, folk, and above all, the two legendary hits Saturday In The Park and Dialogue. IMHO, only the Eagles Hotel California and the Beach Boys Pet Sounds rival this recording. And neither have this kind of varied mix.

Here is the Billboard Magazine story about the latest recording by my all-time favorite band. It is called "NOW - Chicago XXXVI," and is coming out in July. I have pre-ordered my CD copy and have heard some of the songs on it. http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6121547/chicago-now-song-video-premiere-exclusive. Their title cut "NOW" is being shown on video in the Billboard article. Chicago stepped out of their long-time comfort zone here and produced some really good tunes. And they devised a special portable recording studio called "The Rig," that they can take on tour and record just about anywhere. No longer do they have to record in a recording studio. Chicago is proving once again that they are one of the greatest, most innovative bands ever.

I just got my CD copy of NOW-Chicago XXXVI yesterday, and the MP3 version last week. Not the best one they ever did, but it is certainly the best one they have done since Stone of Sisyphus. Definitely recommend it.

RIP to one of the true guitar virtuosos, Johnny Winter. I got to see him a few years ago in Flint at the Whiting. He put on a great show, and his guitar was still blazing hot, but he had to sit in a chair and was carried off the stage afterwards. I also got to see his brother Edgar at the old Chesaning Showboat. In a light rain, he put on a full concert after .38 Special had to leave due to a family emergency with one of the band member's wives. So, I consider myself very lucky to have witnessed both Winters in person, and they were magical moments. http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/17/showbiz/obit-johnny-winter/

In fact Johnny was the last reason to go out to a show since all the old Chicago blues players are LONG since dead.
