Well, that was... pleasant. Nothing great, but pleasant never the less. A finger-picking arrangement would suit the song.

Couldn't get your link to work, but this (http://wgntv.com/2014/08/14/billy-corgan-performs-chicago-live-for-the-first-time-ever/) should work.

That's nice. I guess we will get more Chicago Kid songs from the Ravina show. Should be good.

Very nice!

Sounds like a late-period Zwan song. Replace "Chicago" with "Just Don't Go" or something else generic and you can hear them playing it.

I think he has lost a lot of weight. Maybe 10-20 lbs since 2013. Good for him!

i thought it was just called Chicago Songs. when did it become Chicago Kid? That's almost as embarrassing of a title as Come On Feel The Illinoise!

To be fair, that album was really good. Although maybe "Billy the Chicago Kid!" also would have been good.

CHICAGO
------
I see
I see a memory on the way
I see a kid that I know has my face
It's all now
It's all a memomory on the breeze
It's in the things you want me to say
My love lies beautiful
Specially when I leave
My love lies beautiful to me

With you I'm alone, Chicago
With you I'm alone
With you I'm alone, Chicago
Chicago, my hometown
Chicago, my hometown

To say ___
To say it ain't so
To say ___
To say it ain't so
Chicago

I see
I see a memory on the way
It's in the things you want me to say
It's all now
It's all a memomory on the breeze
It's in the way you make me want to smile

Your love looks beautiful
Specially when I leave
Your love looks beautiful to me

With you I'm alone, Chicago
With you I'm alone
With you I'm alone, Chicago
Chicago, my hometown
Chicago, my hometown

To say ___
To say it ain't so
To say ___
To say it ain't so
Chicago

Not that it has anything to do with anything, but to me it looks like he's slimmed down.

Anyway, I like it, and it gets my hopes up again that we may see this album. Would love to see a lot more in this vein going forward.

He gave it a new title when he said it was being worked on again and would be coming out soon a couple of years ago.

it's pretty great. old song, yea. but what's encouraging is that his vocals in this performance are pretty decent. not much of that vibratto crap. he sings it pretty chilled out.

talking about his vocals, I wonder if he can still do the '93 disarm-style scream.. yes, his voice went through some changes, but these days it just sounds very bad, almost embarrassing when he's supposed to sing those parts..

C: Itís exciting that the ChicagoKid material is fair game for this set, especially for a hometown concert. Do you have any current plans for those tracks?

BILLY CORGAN: I do. Actually the show pretty much opens and ends with some ChicagoKid stuff, so Iím very excited about that.

look at all the stupid hand gestures he makes for no reason and with no purpose, when he introduces the song.

that plus his dumb face and asshole tone are so condescending. like he's talking to a mentally retarded person.

"its called chicago. from my chicago album called chicago kid thats about chicago. its about chicago. chicago."

Actually...

Matt Walker:
Perhaps it’s worth mentioning here that I have nearly finished an extensive documentary on Billy’s Chicago songs. And when I say documentary I do mean the film side. Those sessions were all filmed, and I spent a few months going through the footage and editing it all together. I was somewhat surprised at how well it came out; it really shows the intensity and relentlessness of Billy’s composing and recording process. It’s a cool project because with all the footage available to me, I was able to trace the journey of each song from beginning to end. I am not sure when the documentary will be finished and released, but probably within the next year or two.

Hey, I missed those other videos! Let me get them for you :)

Same as before, lossless rip and no transcoding. Once again, less compression on the audio than the broadcast version, i.e. it has a greater dynamic range.
