Producer's Note
  • *FREE FORM GUITAR was performed an a Fender Stratocaster guitar through a Showman amplifier equipped with a twin 15 bottom utilizing a Bogan P. A. amplifier as a pre-amp. No electronic gimmicks or efects were used in the recording of this selection, the intent being to capture as faithfully as possible the actual sound of the performance as it occurred.

  • **PROLOGUE, AUGUST 29, 1968 -Actual recording, Democratic Convention (Chicago, August 29, 1968). Black militants exhorting demonstrators: "God Give Us the Blood to Keep Going"; March begins; Police attempt to disperse marchers; Chant: "The Whole World's Watching."
  • ***LIBERATION -This track was recorded entirely live. The performance embodied in this recording is complete and uncut.
  • The name of this endeavor is simply "The Chicago Transit Authority". For the last thirteen months these seven individuals have performed in Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco as the C.T.A. So, if for nothing else than oractical logic, they have chosen to title this work appropriately after their professional identity. The purpose of this commentary, however, is an attempt at documenting the complete rejection of any name label, title or verbal reference relative to the performance contained herein. Corporately as well as individually, this artist endeavors to be judged in terms of contribution alone rather than through the tag affixed upon it. The printed word can never aspire to document a truly musical experience, so if you must call them something, speak of the city where alt save one were born; where all of hem were schooled and bred, and where all of this incredible music ent down barely noticed; call them CHICAGO.

       -James William Guercio
