Chicago – Mother

August 21, 2008 | 1971, Album Cuts, Group

Chicago released their first album in 1969, their 2nd in 1970 and their 3rd in 1971. But unlike most groups each of these albums were 2 record sets, so you could say that in three years they had released six records.

Chicago III is not considered one of their best albums, perhaps because side 4 was nearly entirely instrumental and many of the other songs could be considered protest songs. Although in my opinion Side 4 of Chicago III has some of the best music that they recorded.

Mother does fall into that category as it’s Robert Lamm’s on how Mother Nature ‘has been raped and left to die in disgrace”.
