Chicago Chicago  

 In honor of LeBaron's trip to Chicago, I'am posting the greatest ode to the midwest's greatest city. Roy Ayers' Chicago first appeared on a 1983 album named (according to my memory) Silver Vibrations, but also appeared re-recorded on 1988's Drive, from which these recordings game from the 1992 Japanese CD release.  Everybody and Fast Money I imagine would have sounded a little dated in 1988, but then the 'acid jazz' revival of the sound Roy pioneered was just about to occur so maybe it was no accident.

    Random, unrelated comment.

    Does anyone know the name of this track? It goes "make it last, make it last, make it last yeah you and me baby."

    There's also another part which goes, "we can work it out, leave old situations in the past."

    It's killing me and I don't know where else to turn.

    Hope you enjoy your visit. Bring your umbrella and a jacket (it's going to be a rainy and chilly weekend).

    @Bills90 Jocelyn Brown - Make It Last Forever (?)

    Nope, it's not the Jocelyn Brown tune. It's a male vocalist and it's fairly upbeat. Heard it on a Sweater Funk mix.
