The best & unique band, just 7 no need for more!

Filmed on july 21, 1970, at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts, this awesome video features Terry Kath as leader of the group. It was only seven guys and no need for more, everyone was performing at their best. Just taste it as they really were:

Chicago - Beginnings (1970)

Next you have a 1977 version of the same song with an extra guy added to the band. What a difference! But it still rocks! The music starts about 3 minutes in.
Besides, how much live shows have changed since the early seventies; it's hard to imagine musicians coming on stage and tuning their own instruments.

And Last but not the least, a very brazilian style version of this great Lamm's song. From "September 17, 1969" LP Astrud Gilberto version of the Chicago song stunning dancefloor groover!
