iTunes Editors’ Notes

Hugely successful over multiple decades, Chicago have weathered various personnel shakeups and sea changes in the music industry, but continue to tour relentlessly, bringing their massive catalog of classic hits to adoring audiences around the globe. After more than 40 years as a group, five #1 albums, and over 20 Top Ten singles, they've got no shortage of material to cull from, though surprisingly, this collection only features seven tracks. While technically impossible to capture all the energy of a Chicago concert, this mix does a good job of it, kicking things off with two of their best and most-loved tunes, "25 or 6 to 4" and "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is." They're all getting up there in years, but still have the chops to pull it off, unleashing their trademark mix of rock, funk, jazz, and smooth balladry, and showcasing their always on-point horn section.

Who made this ?? this is god alful<---- so mad I can't even spell it right. itunes you are in need of quality controllers.


Another copy of the live in Toronto from 1969. If you really want it get the version that is $3.99. Much better off to get the Live in Japan or Live at Carnegie Hall.

According to Billboard chart statistics, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, in terms of both albums and singles. Judged by album sales alone, as certified by the R.I.A.A., the band does not rank quite so high, but it is still among the Top Ten best-selling U.S. groups ever. If such statements of fact surprise, that's because Chicago has been singularly underrated since the beginning of its long career, both because of its musical ambitions...
