Thank you from John Ford Coley

Recently, I purchased the 2cd set "The Atlantic Albums" by England Dan and John Ford Coley.

Jim Solem replied to Marc Whitt's discussion Opening Acts for CHICAGO
"Remember the Pointer Sisters opening for them in Omaha back in 1974 or so. Also, Hall & Oates at Sandstone in Kansas City back in the late 90's."

Jim Solem replied to Chicago-Admin's discussion American Cancer Society promotion "Sing With Chicago" winners...
"After watching a few of these, it reminded me of how difficult that song is to sing, but what a great idea! A great way for fans to do something they probably only dream of and a terrific way to raise money for breast cancer research. Again, you…"
