Chicago Loop

Chicago LoopFrom: Chicago, Illinois, USA

Originally known s Time, Chicago Loop were formed by Barry Golberg. Original members included Golberg (organ, piano), Judy Novy (vocals, percussion), Carmine Riale (bass), John Siomos (drums), Bob Slawson (vocals, guitar), and Mike Bloomfield (guitar). Chicago Loop recorded a six track demo in 1966, and Bloomfield provided his talents on these tracks.

Chicago Loop’s first two singles were both produced by Bob Crewe and Al Kasha on Crewe’s label. The band’s first single, “(When She Wants Good Lovin’) My Baby Comes To Me” / “This Must Be The Place,” reached #37 on the Billboard charts. Bloomfield left the band after the release of the first single, and soon recruited Golberg for Electric Flag. Slawson formed a new Chicago Loop and signed a deal with Mercury. The band also did a commercial for Macleans toothpaste in 1966 and it is thought that Bloomfield played guitar for the ad. Chicago Loop’s Mercury singles are uptempo pop songs. The last release is backed with fuzz tone and strange psych vibes.
