Weekly Vinyl – Chicago X

Chicago

I was never a fan of Chicago growing up.
I always liked the city though. How can you not… the home of Second City, the blues…
Yet I always liked this album cover – that’s why I picked it up a few years ago at a garage sale. The album cover looks like a chocolate bar partially unwrapped.
For some the music on the album is sweet stuff.
Not so much for me … It is too 70s. Too middle of the road. Too soft rock.
If you want to know what the 70s sounded like don’t put on disco, hard rock, punk… put this on.
This is what most radio sounded like.
The horror, the horror, the horror.

By the way – the X is a Roman Numeral that stands for ten (10). It is not an edgy album name.
