What do you guys think of this DVD? I found it really interesting to actually see how a Chicago rehearsal and jam session is carried through. I absolutely loved it when they closed with Robert Lamm singing and playing keys on "Another Rainy Day In NYC"! It looked like such a good time!
You know, I got to thinking and maybe a new DVD may be too expensive for the band to produce, but maybe they could post videos here when they start rehearsals with the Doobies? I thought of this after remembering Greg Adams of East Bay Soul (formally of Tower of Power) put up in the studio video clips of him and Lee Thornburg laying down horn tracks to their first CD. So if Chicago can't do a new DVD, how about some video clips from the rehearsal hall posted on this site? That is, if the band is willing. Just a thought. :)
I could only imagine how hard it must be for 8 band members to decide and agree on song choices, blocking for each song etc., so it was interesting to watch them discuss ideas and the reasons for making the decisions they did for that tour. I liked how after each idea they showed a video segment of how that song worked in that part of the show whether it be the acoustic version of Wake Up Sunshine or the ending on We Can Make It Happen while working the crowd. I would definitely love to see another video like this and one from the road would be very exciting to see. Thank you for your responses!
