CD Reviews

I was there
Robert R. Speer | Seattle, WA | 07/27/2007

"I was in a band playing the same circuit as these guys in 1972.
We would play at The Rush Up in Chicago one week and than the Stone Toad in Milwaukee the next. I met these guys and heard them many times. They were fabulous musicians. They spent two years at James William Gurcios ranch recording 2 albums just as his other band Chicago had done.
By the way The Rush Up in Chicago was made famous by a band known as The Big Thing. That was the name of Chicago before they became CTA or Chicago Transit Authority. hawk their Keyboard player could lay down a base line on his B3 better than any B3 player I have ever heard. These guys were 100 times the band that another trio out at the time Grand Funk ever dreamed of being."
QUITE A LETDOWN

"i was led to believe that the guitarist was terry kath, so i jumped for it and overpaid greatly. the guitarist is good, but definitely is not kath. and there's not enough guitar playing. the drummer is outstanding, the growly lead vocalist is good, as is the organist. the harmonies are kind of weak and i just don't know what the excitement is about this group. some of the writing and harmonies mirror Chicago and james william guercio is involved in this group as well, but i was greatly disappointed in the overall CD. it's not kath and not chicago."
Yes they were a real band!

"Just to trounce the idea that this was a Terry Kath solo project (the guitar playing is completely different)if anyone cares to watch the film 'electra glid in blue' they can see Madura playing live on stage unfortunately too short, but they look hot! and Dave 'Hawk' Wolinski is the hippy they hassle. This is a great album as is Bangor flying Circus's effort. 'Hawk' is a great soulful singer and great keyboard player. Bet he never imagined in 72 he'd write a hit single for Rufus and appear live with them! The only similarity to Chicago is Guerico's involvement. This is great funky stuff and the version of 'Johnny b.goode' is brilliant. Buy this!"
