Hey Gang -
I just wanted to take a few moments of your time to point you to a playlist of some of my favorite lesser-known artists from Chicago. I've also done a Compare-and-contrast Late Greats style thing with "The Ballad of El Goodo", including both Big Star's original and Chicago power-pop group Sunday Runner's cover. I hope you listen and enjoy. I'll very much still be doing MFR, so hakuna matata, music fans young and old. You'll now just have two blogs to read :) (I'm such a doofus).
Listen to songs at the top of the post.
