Jimmy Pankow's Opus: Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon

Some might have seen this on Facebook, and I wanted to share here too, an essay I wrote called "Jimmy Pankow's Opus: Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon." Now I would really love to know what Jimmy's original titles were for all the movements, something he talks about in the movie. Colour My World was the only movement which didn't have a baroque-inspired titled.

Every time Chicago plays “Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon” live onstage, the audience is treated to hearing a rock masterpiece…

What Happened To Walt???

     I Know I've Been Out Of The Loop For A While But I Was Just Wondering What Happened To Walt???

I Saw Chicago On AXS TV Recently And He Wasn't With The Group. Not A Mention Of Why He Wasn't There In The Interviews With Robert, Jimmy And Lee.  

On AXSTV They Mentioned A New CD "XXXV".  When And Where Can I Get It?

Thank you from John Ford Coley

Recently, I purchased the 2cd set "The Atlantic Albums" by England Dan and John Ford Coley. Inside the liner notes, John Ford Coley recalls, "....All those acts of the day that we came across, Three Dog Night, Bread, the Carpenters, Elton, Carole King, CHICAGO, they all treated us so good and really helped us along."

I thought a nice thank you to a group that I feel the same way about.....Chicago!!

Chicago/EWF on Yahoo

Any comments on Chicago adding "Street Player" to the line-up on this past week's live Yahoo concert from Az?

"Chicago 13", from where the song came, probably (I'm guessing) one of the lowest selling "first-run" albums, with no big hits, and having Donnie Dacus on lead. A fan since '69, personally, I could think of a lot of other "obscure" songs to add to the line-up: e.g.: "Lowdown"; "Flight 602", "Something In This City...", "Byblos", and one of my favorites, though not very…

Concert Review of Hollywood, Florida Show

I always say each time I go to a Chicago concert "the band continues to get better and better".  Due to personal reasons, I had not seen them in a few years.  Thursday night's concert blew me away.  What an absolute joy to sit through 25 amazing songs.  They were unbelievably good and absolutely incredible.  Better than ever!  

They opened with "Introduction".  It is the first time I had seen the entire song in concert.  Let's put it this way...I hope they always open with that song.…

New to the Blog!

Hi All!

I'm new the Chicago The Band Music Community.  I've been a loyal Chicago fan since the day I bought the "Chicago Transit Authority" album back in the early seventies when it was released. I'm retired military, and they have been there with me through high school, many military deployments, marriage, divorce, marriage again, children, and grandchildren.  It's amazing how so many of the songs I grew up with and went through life with still…

Raleigh concert

I saw my favorite band in Raleigh this past Saturday night. I drove 5 hrs to see them. It was worth every mile. I saw them in May at Harrah's Cherokee. They are the best band of all time for me. They make me so happy every time I hear one of their songs. I grew up listening to them and still enjoy them as much as I did in the 70's when I first know who they were. I am so happy the merchandise has come out. For the past few years I had been trying to get shirts, posters and such. I would love…

I want to say Chicago has been loved by me for 42 years. I loved them as a child! They got me through my divorce in 1981 and  it was so hard because I still loved my ex-husband. He went to Embry- Riddle, in Daytona Beach, Florida for 4 years and guess who typed his reports. Well, single life attracted him and left a 1 year old and me by the sidelines. Well, I have always put myself on the line for others and I probably would do it again. My friend and I went to Phoenix, Arizona last year. My…

Early Chicago Music Sketch Scorers

Hello Chicago Fans, I know many of you are musicians and have accumulated sheet music over the years of our favorite band.  I lost the Complete Works Sketch Scores for Chicago Transit Authroity, Chicago II and III in a move in 1978.  Alas, I am having trouble finding a credible source to buy/borrow or get "gifted" one.  I still have my Chicago V, VI, VII and VIII original sketch scores.  So within the appropriate way of securing one, please advise if anyone has one.  I'd be willing to…
