EDITORS’ NOTES

As this well-selected “best of” package makes clear, Chicago quickly found that tuneful midtempo numbers and romantic balladry were their true forte. In early hits like “Color My World,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” and “Saturday in the Park,” the band emphasizes smooth, plaintive vocals and tight, lustrous arrangements. Tunes like “Wishing You Were Here,” “If You Leave Me Now” and “Old Days” continue in a soft yet distinctive vein, boasting seamless ensemble work along with inescapable hooks. Weathering the loss of lead singer Peter Cetera in 1985, the band remains faithful to their core sound on such melodically-rich singles as “Look Away” and “What Kind of Man Would I Be?”

Selecting memories

I tried to choose my favorite songs to cut down on the price....what a difficult task. In the end it was cheaper to buy them all. I feel so blessed compared to the commenter “horrible”. I just love 99% of their music, and the 1% left, it’s just fine too. How lucky am I that these songs bring back such wonderful memories!

Bobby Bee on Chicago..

I haven't eveen bought the albulm (as of this entry) but I've ALWAYS loved them. It's the music of my time!! Plain & simple, and probably yours Baby Boomers (50s babies), we were coming into our own, so there was no Black music,White music. We were just as enthralled w/ the Beatles (and Chicago) as Caucasian people were w/ Aretha & James Brown. OK?
Music, remember - is the UNIVERSAL language..Peace
