Day 356: If you leave me now, Chicago

Time for a soppy love song. This song is pretty and dominated the airwaves when it was first released in 1976. It reminds me very much of the Max Merritt classic Slipping Away which I have already cited on Covid Island Discs. For a long time I could not find a high quality version of this song on Youtube but finally one popped up in my feed. I am always in admiration of musicians who can pluck a 12 string clearly as Peter Cetera does in this performance of Chicago’s iconic song as obviously it takes more precision than plucking out a tune on a standard six string guitar.
