Chicago's "Harry Truman" Is Played On Morning Joe
"Harry Truman" is an unusual track for Chicago, but in those days the band was still experimenting - especially Robert Lamm who wrote almost all of the band's social commentary and political songs. James Pankow's trombone solo and Walt Parazaider's clarinet solo sound dated on purpose to fit in with the time period. (Actually, they would have sounded old even in Truman's day). The song closes with a full chorus vocalizing over top of Terry Kath's guitar and the complete horn section blaring away at full throttle. It's an uplifting piece of music.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
