    25 or 6 to 4 (I think thats the order of the numbers in the title) is the greatest Chicago song ever....

    I dig "Does anybody really know what time it is?" but that's because of the cool trumpet solo. As though anyone should be surprised. :shock:

    I dig all of their old stuff and had most of the solos learned back in my youth. "Does Anybody really know what time it is" is one of the better solos, but there are sooo many. Yeah....great stuff. :thumbsup:

    Don't forget "Baby what a Big Surprise" with the piccolo stuff. Yeah!

    I too love the old Chicago tunes.

    One of the bands I'm in plays "25 or 6 to 4", and "Does Anybody Really Know What Time it is", and the crowd always crowds the dance floor. What fun songs to play, and listen too.

    Alex, which album is "Baby what a Big Surprise" on?

    Hey Warren,

    "Baby What a Big Surprise" is from Chicago XI :-)

    I have the four CD box set...I think it will be getting some play time this weekend. I really like their early stuff the best. Chicago II is a jewel.

    Yee HAW!
    Chicago is great and I love their music. But right now I'm listening to Blood, Sweat and Tears rip through "God Bless the Child" and that trumpet solo raises the hair on my neck every time. Those guys were SERIOUS about their horn work.

    Toots...BST has been at the top of my list my whole life. Those guys are just fantastic. "Go Down Gamblin" and "Lucricia McEvil" ...... the list goes on and on......I really like their rendition of "God Bless the Child".

    Alex,

    Did you know that Mr. Fabulous, Alan Rubin did the solos on those?
    It was not Lew Zoloff.
