23 Songs, 1 Hour 7 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

For their second album, Chicago shortened their name (from Chicago Transit Authority) and broadened their sound. “Movin’ In” and “25 or 6 to 4” are brassy pop songs with a big band makeover, bristling with punchy horns and driving bass. The group truly stretched out on “Memories of Love,” an orchestrated multipart song cycle that showcased their classical music influences.

a badly needed re working and thanks so much for it

For my 59 year old ears, this 2nd LP by Chicago is musically their best work. Soundwise, probably their worst. Before this remix I could not listen to this lp/cd in my listening room. The only place I can tolerate such poor audio quality is in my car.

This Steve Wilson remix changes all of that!

There are still some tracks that sound terrible on this re-mix, 25 Or 6 To 4, is the most glaring example.
Most of side one is greatly improved. Movin In, the LP's opener sounds far superior here than on the original mix, as are the following 2 tracks. In The Country is also improved on but still has some issues. Wake Up Sunshine sounds wonderful now.

The Ballet is somewhat improved with Colour My World enjoying the biggest improvement. I still wish The entire Ballet could sound, and feel, as great as Movin' In and Wake Up Sunshine. They sound best.
