    Sweet! I'll look them up when I go visit the relatives this summer. Man, add good beer and bikes to that and you have summed up my existence!

    Got them on now, Street Player, and oh, man, do they nail it! Even if you aren't a fan of the song or style, this is just done so well. And Arturo guest solo, they are pulling their weight for sure.

  4. Agreed. Worked in a band that covered 85% of their first three LPs.... with no tenors in the band. Needless to say, we crossed over to playing Stones covers shortly there after.

    For the doubters: This isn't the take or mix that went to the LP but this take is outstanding.

    So cool to have Arturo joining in remote. Hes the man. The current lineup has a flugelhorn player, but suspicious he cant blow high like Arturo. Also, they have a french horn player, which is maybe a better blend to a fhorn.

    Lots of changes in line up.

    "The Terry Kath Experience"

    It's done by Terry's daughter. It's a great documentary. I have watched it a couple of times now, once on AXS and once on Netflix (I think....coulda been Prime).

    Their biggest pop smash was co-written by Cetera.

    Hard To Say I’m Sorry

    I understand your point, and I’m sure David Foster had a lot to do with it. Like he did with so many others.

    I think they had plenty of writing chops.

    I love when the time signature changes and they start chugging.

    It's pretty much all in 4/4...the "chugging" is in double-time. :)

    I usually post this in Cetera threads...my 1st ever issue of Downbeat had a Readers Poll. In that era, readers of Downbeat were a very discerning crowd (i.e. Jazz snobs! Did I say that out loud?).
    Cetera made the List!

    Just a quick blurb...the old guys already know this...new fans of Cetera: Check out Jimmy Fielder on the early Blood, Sweat, & Tears albums. Another trove of great listening/learning material.

    Oh yeah I was there all three days. I saw Zeppelin 5 times, that of course being the first. At that festival they were unbelievable. Just incredible. Much more freeform and loose and experimental. One other time (Zep III tour I think) they were good. The other three times they were probably the worst live act I've ever witnessed. Sad to say. Zeppelin is one of those phenoms that I guarantee 90% or more of the people who claim to have seen them live did not. Same with the Texas International Pop Festival. If all the people who now claim to have been at that festival were actually there the crowd would have extended well up into Oklahoma.
