The first rock band I ever experienced in concert was Chicago Transit Authority. Yes, they were still using that name, although they would soon shorten it at the request of the actual CTA. I got a chance to see them for three sets at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City and the opening act was The Five Stairsteps who would soon hit it big with the classic "O-O-H Child." In later years they were primarily a AM radio singles band and although some tunes clicked with me I pretty much lost interest in band after Chicago VII. When Chicago started out they were a very aggressive rock band with horns, great vocals and a massive sound. Terry Kath was a flat-out amazing guitar player and as a young drummer I was mesmerized by the playing of Danny Seraphine, who had legitimate jazz chops. I still pull the old albums out once in a while and today was one of those days.
