    Chicago III (1971) and Chicago V (1972).

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    B. B. King - Live in Japan

    Whoa, what an album! Crystal-clear playing by B. B. King, lots of surprising experimentation and subtlety. Very tight band sound. Overall a great live album, highly recommended.

    Rainbow - Kill the King, Long Live Rock 'n' Roll, from 'The Very Best of Rainbow'

    This stuff is excellent. Dio and Blackmore shine in these tracks.

    What an amazing jam band they were before the death of Terry Kath and their settling into a routine of "adult contemporary" easy listening ballads.

    A terribly underrated and misunderstood group. I absolutely loved Box's guitar work. There's nothing quite like it. Not virtuoso maybe, but distinctive. I also love Ken Hensley's song writing ability and the great vocal harmonies, though I admit I cringe a lot at David Byron's nightclub performer stage presence. Performers shouldn't interject asides into their vocals. Robert Plant was bad about this too, in my opinion.

I guess producer/part-time lyricist Sandy Pearlman knew what he was doing after all.

    For me they were the anti-Black Sabbath and I loved both bands. Where Sabbath slammed with tons of heavy lead sludge, BOC burned with white hot flames -- "Hot Rails to Hell" being a primes example. Crank up the treble!

    Absolutely, Weston - many people think they lost their sense of adventure and were on the slide after 'III' but even though things got somewhat more streamlined for the next few albums they were still a million miles away from being the full-on MOR monstrosity of the late 70s. One early song that goes under the radar is 'What Else Can I Say' from 'III' - it was only the second song Pete Cetera wrote for the group but it was a real gem which reminded me of the kind of stuff that Stephen Stills was writing at the time.

    Kath was a tough loss - not just a great guitarist but also blessed with a superb blue-eyed soul voice. Once he died what rock 'n' roll elements were left in Chicago by then died with him. I admired the group's pluck for carrying on without him but retrospectively I really wished they hadn't.

    Lately I've been listening to this Steppenwolf concert from about the year 2000. The band may not be the original, but --man! -- they sound a lot better than the studio albums, and John Kay even has a better voice here than on the albums. You've gotta love that Hammond B3. When hard rock, the world and I were all young.
