THE ARTISTICS - HARD TO CARRY ON


One of many consistently great Chicago groups, practically every release from the Artistics is top notch in their performance, execution and songwriting.

Released shortly after lead singer Marvin Smith left the group, he did contribute some lead vocals to studio sessions. I'm pretty sure he's singing the glorious falsetto lead on this track, but if you know otherwise, please let me know!

from 1968...

Thanks - a little-heard track from an underrated group. Apropos of nothing, it's got to be the only song lyric ever written that contains the line "input equals output"!
