What Time It Is?, Questions 67 and 68 and Beginnings, Chicago's debut album was filled with so
many great songs, it could be its own greatest hits collection.

plus the late Terry Kath masterwork Free Form Guitar all truly make this fine album even more

Younger Than Yesterday (MONO)Ranked 124/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Younger Than Yesterday, the Byrds' fourth albumand in some people's eyes, the pinnacle of their artwastes no time, bursting out of the gates with still another national smash, So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star. Spotlighting the jazzy trumpet of Hugh Masekela, this paean to outrageous rock stardom was a highlight of the Byrds' appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival, possibly the most thrilling gathering of the musical tribes, ever. Every bit as exciting was Have You Seen Her Face, the album's second radio hit. A return to space-rock, C.T.A.-102, should have been nominated for a Hugo, the annual prize for the best work in science fiction. The standout track ofYesterday, nevertheless, is My Back Pages, a good bet as the best-ever blend of lush Byrds harmonies and jangling guitar with Bob Dylan at his Finnegan's Wake lyrical best.
