KREUZVERHOR = cross examination

Some of you may have already seen this interview by email, but I think it reflects my current thinking.

I enjoyed this German journalist's (blanking on the name, sorry)  approach.

I was publicizing the JVE ReMixes album.

Robert Lamm: Fender Rhodes scholar

Hey, y'all!  It's so cool to have a blog dedicated to Lamm and Chicago (and I notice Lamm himself posts stuff -- substantive, interesting stuff, not just promotional material one finds on other official artist sites)!

Speaking of blogs, I have one called "Technopoetics of Music" where I expatiate upon different musical things that interest me.  One of them is an essay on various pianists whom I consider to be the best at the Fender Rhodes piano.  Of course, my definition of "best" is…

My Blog: Horn Band Reviews

If you haven't seen it yet, please feel free to check out my blog linked below, mostly on Chicago topics. It's a work in progress, and I'll be adding new essays. I tried to focus on some things that I haven't read anywhere else, such as reviews of quad mixes that I really love and are substantially different from the stereo mixes. I'l probably review II in quad next, but I also thought that Ballet needed its own essay, especially considering the Song Hall nomination!  

I'm no expert…

CDs, Streaming, Downloads, and 1-off catalog

Good Morning! Thanks to all who responded to my long-delayed appearance here. Until very recently, CDBaby.com was the place to go for RLsolo CDs. It continues to be where to go to stream my music, or get the music via downloads. From now on, robertlammsolo.com is where copies of 'physical' CDs are available.  I hope to make the many 1-off recordings we've done, into 1 compilation album. If you are curious about, or are familiar with these rare recordings, I'd like to put together a list of all…

WELCOME ROBERT LAMM SOLO FANS!

I am Robert Lamm, in case you were wondering. As some of you may know, there has been a serious re-vamping of both this website, and also the Chicago band website.  I wish to apologize to the members who were frustrated with what the $%!@#$ was going on. I also apologize to the new members who were graciously trying to join up and get acknowledgement from me, or anybody. So ...WELCOME RLS FANS ! The website is the same, essentially, but built to last, and built to work smoothly. (Thanks, Fusion…

"Love your answers, Robert.  Your two solo albums "Subtlety&Passion" (which you signed for me....thank you) and "Living Proof" are still two of my all time favorite albums.  Always felt that Subtlety & Passion was the Chicago album that wasn't.  I ne…"

"Hi Robert,
How about an acoustic or orchestra version of "Wake Up Sunshine"?
In addition, would you consider putting back your piano intro to "Does Anybody Know What Time It Is?" for Chicago's upcoming 50th Anniversary Tour?
Thanks for asking for ou…"

More than Yesterday is another great version you did with Chicago.

"Sounding good!  I love "Come To Me Do" and will be interested to hear your non-horn version.  Maybe you'll finish a song or two you have hanging in the wings to add to this, too.  Keep composing Songwriter Hall of Fame Nominee (and worthy inductee!)"

thanks for jumping in with your suggestions. And yes, I'm thinking the 1-OFF tracks that were not on any of my albums.
I've asked Bobby Woods (Led Deux) if I could include three of those. So far:
