Happy Birthday, Terry Kath

Terry Kath was the lead guitarist for Chicago Transit Authority, or just Chicago now, as they were sued by the real Chicago Transit Authority for using the name. Ha.

Today is his birthday, and his daughter has put together a website devoted to him and has made a 1969 recording available that showcased Terry’s talent.   This brings back the freedom of the 60s and how bands like Chicago were more laidback and just went with the flow, wherever that took them.

From the email:

Listen to some music:
“As we head into the celebrations of Terry’s life and accomplishments, I wanted to share one of the premiere recordings of a performance that is quintessential early Chicago. The August 17th, 1969 Fillmore West show is filled with Terry’s consummate, jaw-dropping guitar work. This is Terry at his best….”Liberation” is breathtaking in this one.”
