Mother - Chicago - Chicago III

The band was truly exploring and utilizing the studio space with the cowbell. His solo is syncopated with more cowbell, some solid drum fills by Danny Seraphine, and some of the most melodic bass playing that Peter ever laid down. An Hour In the Shower is perhaps the most unusual song ever recorded by Chicago. Following the perpetually amusing Hour In the Shower the album takes a decidedly pretentious turn with Robert Lamm reciting the Kendrew Laschelles poem, When All the Laughter Dies in Sorrow which opens the third and final multiple part musical piece on the album.

Once Upon a Time features another thoroughly enjoyable flute solo by Walt Parazaider before James Pankow offers an equally enjoyable trombone solo before both Walt and trumpeter Lee Loughnane come in.

The horns eventually blend into a cacophony of noise that fades out as the sound of car horns fade in along with the sound of jackhammers and other unpleasant reminders of modern life. I Don't Want Your Money 5. Mother 7. Lowdown 8. Free mono 45 edit Lowdown Japanese stereo 45 version The layout is a bit the same as on their second album: the first side is a collection of unrelated songs, while the other three sides are occupied by mini-suites, some sidelong, others not and more solo tracks are filling up the space.

Nothing I wish! The flipside fares much better with the Lamm-penned sidelong Travel Suite. Starting on the lovely Beatle-esque Flight , soon followed by a short drum solo leading us on Mars, where we're Free. Then comes a rare Parazaider track, Free Country, which an almost atonal piece where his usually-rare flute takes a good part of the track, then the group are witnessing the Sunrise from Mars I suppose? Quite a fantastic trip allowing our spacey progheads to wallow in a daze.

The third side starts on two unrelated tracks, the brilliant Mother Pankow's trombone is featured and the average Cetara-penned Lowdown actually of the three songs he's written so far, this is the only sounding like Chicago, instead of AOR , before the 5'30" Kath- penned An Hour In The Shower mini-suite, which is not Kath's best track, but still maintains a high Chicago standard.

The closing side is the Pankow-penned Elegy, starting on a recitation of wisdom, before the brass section takes away the theme in a cheesy Canon-like manner.

A flute gradually takes the listener from a gentle mood to a completely atonal "mess" where a sledgehammer and trombone car horns all get flushed down the toilet. Approaching Storm is the killer track on this suite, with a dynamite guitar role and a dramatic never- ending end. Following the minor confusion over the title of Chicago's second album retrospectively called "Chicago II , things settled down with this the band's correctly numbered third release.

Then there's Hour in the Shower, the silly suite by Terry Kath which is notable at least by me as the only blatantly sexual lyrics Chicago ever recorded unless you thought all that stuff about showers, maypoles, spam, and electric friends were about something else?

It's bright, happy music, and fun to play along with as well. The last side of the second album let's pause here and consider, Chicago essentially released six two-sided records in just two years is given over to an instrumental suite preceded by a now-dated poem spoken by Robert Lamm.

A few jazz and modern classical inspired pieces follow, but then we hit The Approaching Storm. Do you like this album? Leave a review. At the Sunrise. Dreamin' Home. Fallin' Out. Flight Free Country.

  4. Mar 07,  · This thrilling album by Chicago is the last to feature the lengthy song-cycle suites that characterized their output. Bringing together aspects of jazz rock, progressive rock (as it existed in ), acid rock, and avant-garde influences, this also may be their most experimental album - unlike the first two albums, there were no smash hits on Chicago III/5(89).
  5. Sep 06,  · Chicago III may be the last album on which Chicago can unambiguously be called a 'progressive rock' act – at least if you exclude Chicago VII. What followed was still going to be very good, at first, but anyway, this is mostly an enjoyable album/5(18).
  6. This double album reveals a band blessed with an acute musical intellect. Textured passages vacillate between gritty R&B, jazzy rock, and brassy folk, yet songs stick in your head as sing-along hooks (like the Beatle-esque “What Else Can I Say” and “Free”) or somber narratives (“Prelude to Aire”).
