Chicago The Band Fan Forum

The official community for fans of the legendary rock band with horns.

Just downloaded the wonderful 3 pack, and just wanted to thank our boys for the idea and actually going ahead and doing it. More, more please! All 3 are an absolute pleasure to hear again, but particularly, specially, and most importantly for me is the brilliant surprise of Lee's wonderful vocals on Make Me Smile!
All the guts and feeling that Terry had put into the opeening vocals. are finally back again! I almost had tears in my eyes. You know how amazing Terry's voice sounds, particularly as he sings "... even though, time and time again I see your face smiling inside..." ? In all the years after him, I never heard a version that did justice to this 'vocal part' till finally now, so thank you Lee, thank you for that gutsy true to the spirit singing, thank you, thank you :-)
And talking about bringing things back to life, thank you Keith, for that wonderful solo on 25 or 6 to 4! You're awesome.
Can't wait for more! :-)

After hearing Keith's solo on "25 or 6 to 4" my jaw dropped...he must've been channeling Terry! Absolutely perfect and true to the original, but still with his (Keith's) distinct style. This, and all the new studio recordings, earn a heavy rotation place on my playlist. Thanks for these "new" versions of our favorite Chicago classics!

I got the 3 pack too and I just love when Lee sings lead :) He does a great job on Make me Smile. I agree with the others, he should sing it live(I love Lou, but it would be an extra treat to see Lee sing it). I'd love to hear him sing more songs in concert, but then I guess that would take away his fantastic trumpet playing. I hope the band makes it back to Florida again soon, I miss seeing you all :) Also can't wait for the next download treasure. :)

All I can say is AWESOME. Lee's voice on Make Me Smile is great. Hope he sings it in concert. Will see you Thursday in Lancaster, Pa.
