Limited 180gm red colored vinyl LP pressing. The story of Chicago starts with the band itself, one of the most diversified, motivated and individually talented lineups ever assembled. Chicago was founded in 1967 by Walt Parazaider (woodwinds), James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Roert Lamm (keyboards/lead vocals), Terry Kath (guitar/lead vocals), and Danny Seraphine (drums). They called themselves The Big Thing and added bassist-lead vocalist Peter Cetera before working with their original producer-manager James William Guercio, subsequently becoming known as Chicago Transit Authority. Unlike any record before or since, the ensemble's self-titled 1969 debut release is an ambitious mix of free-form rock and horn-influenced jazz, the first of three double LPs that would start a peerless career. Chicago Transit Authority (aka Chicago I) rose to the top of the charts in 1969 with 12 unforgettable tracks, including the hit singles "Beginnings, " "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and "Questions 67 and 68." Certified double platinum, the classic release also contains a cover of Steve Winwood's "I'm A Man, " "Prologue, August 29, 1968" (recorded at the Democratic convention) and the 15-plus minute live take on "Liberation." The album also has the unique distinction of having stayed on the charts for an amazing three-year run; a record when it was released in 1969.
