    "Waiting For The Break Of Day....."!!

    It is the Band Chicago, with their 1971 single release, '25 Or 6 To 4', From their 'Live At Carnegie Hall' Album.
    In the day, Chicago was one of the bigger/Larger membered bands touring, carrying along a full horn section.
    This single is my favorite by Chicago, just a nice driving rhythm straight through!!

    Thank You,
    Thomas.

      Here's an interesting song tidbit:

      *snip*

      Peter Cetera sang lead on this track - despite his jaw being wired shut. A few months before the recording session, the band went to a baseball game at Dodger Stadium, where their hometown team, the Chicago Cubs, beat the Dodgers, leaving four marines angry and ready to take their aggression out on someone. That someone was Cetera, who was singled out by his long hair as much as his team loyalty. The ensuing brawl sent him to intensive care with a jaw broken in three places. When it came time to record the song, his jaw was still wired shut.

      "He had to learn to sing differently," producer James Guercio told Mix magazine. "I told him, 'I can't wait, we're gonna do this.'"

      Cetera did his vocal through clenched teeth, which he adopted as a trademark singing style.

      *snip*

      Brian, I'll have to check on time length. Some singles were made shorter for airplay. It does not Allways say on a 45 if it is a edited version. I'm like you tho, especially when you consider the 'Jam' session they get into during the song! Lol! Thank You Here!!,

      Kera, Intresting tidbit indeed!! Thank you here!!,

      Ken, Officialfuel, Rich, TheGateKeeper, FrancoA, Ben, Kevin, Bobby, "Stuff", Jenni, Ms.CrystalShip And Lucas, Thanks one and all here much!! Allways!!
