“At The Sunrise” #JusJoJan

Toortsie provided today’s prompt, “sunrise.” How about “At The Sunrise” by Chicago, from their third album, Chicago III?

Now here’s John Wayne for Camel cigarettes.

  1. I like Chicago because, to me, they were more than just a regular band due to the orchestral style they brought. Boy is that commercial eerie in some ways since John Wayne was such a heavy smoker at 4 packs a day. He had to have a lung removed due to cancer in the early 1960s. Mind you, I actually believe he got his cancer from that horrible movie he made, The Conqueror. So many died of cancer from that film because they filmed in the desert right near a nuclea testing site. To this day the radiation at the movie site is still dangerously high

    1. Chicago could do rock, jazz, funk, and even classical well, but I think they got pigeonholed in the ’80’s as a band that did ballads. They still did rock and jazz, but that wasn’t what was selling. A lot of people bought their albums for the hits because they pretty much had to (in the pre-MP3 days).

      That might be true about “The Conqueror.” Hadn’t thought of that…

  2. John,

    I don’t remember this song. After Googling it I soon realized why since it came out in 1971. I had not known who Chicago was when I was 10 years old. I’m not sure at one point in my young life this band was introduced to me but it might have been about the time DH and I began dating because that was one of his favorite groups. Thanks for the song introduction!
