I liked the Chicago of the 70’s with the horn driven sound, it was something a little different- when the hits became less frequent they changed their style with this one- and I lost any interest I had in their music from here on out. On this single they even brought in session musicians-only two of Chicago’s members played on the song. While I didn’t care for the results of this or future Chicago hits- they were a hit with the public.
