    Peter Cetera was truly one of the great pop singers of the 80’s era, and though Foster’s production tended towards the bombastic, the bands impeccable musicianship shines through on this track.

      In the parlance of those in the music industry, Chicago were a collection of ‘monster’ musicians. In my opinion, both Cetera and Journey’s Steve Perry represented the finest vocalists of their era.

      Very ‘True’. Chicago’s instrumental style is their signature (id) over all superb vocals in the group.😎👍👍

    I loved Chicago! I’m a sax player and the horns were an incredible addition, especially the brass, which I never quite conquered. But Peter Cetera was masterful! I love a rock band that can not only play their instruments, but have a vocalist that is expressive as well as powerful. That’s Chicago! Okay, I need coffee!
