    The Chicago/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!


    Celebrate The 45th Anniversary Of Their Debut Masterpiece Chicago Transit Authority!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Lee Loughnane From Chicago!


    Chicago Transit Authority was the first chapter in a long line of multiplatinum smash albums
    for Chicago which begun in 1969. Featuring the original award winning line-up of Robert Lamm
    (lead vocals/keyboards), Peter Cetera (lead vocals/bass), Terry Kath (lead vocals/guitars), the
    legendary horns of Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Walter Parazaider (saxophone/woodwinds), James
    Pankow (trombone) plus Danny Seraphine (drums), Chicago Transit Authority is undoubtedly one
    of the biggest selling albums of the classic rock era and is also one of the most revered offerings
    in their huge catalog. Buoyed by the success of huge hit singles like Does Anybody Really Know
    What Time It Is?, Questions 67 and 68 and Beginnings, Chicago's debut album was filled with so
    many great songs, it could be its own greatest hits collection.


    Further smashes like the powerful funkified version of I'm a Man, the stellar Introduction,
    plus the late Terry Kath masterwork Free Form Guitar all truly make this fine album even more
    of a treasure trove of classic rock enjoyment.


    It's been several decades since the rare original vinyl version of C.T.A. has been available
    that is until now! Friday Music is very honored to continue the CHICAGO 180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE

    Child Is The Father To The Man (Speakers Corner)

    Ranked 264/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Import

    There'll be disappointment in store for those who expect to hear the voice of David Clayton-Thomas when listening to the present Blood, Sweat & Tears LP, Child Is Father To The Man. Experts will know however that on the group's very first album they will get to hear the excellent Al Kooper. The man is far more than a singer, for he not only plays the piano and various other keyboards but has also composed almost all the numbers and made the arrangements for the string ensemble. Bluesy pieces such as I Love You More and I Can't Quit Her and the vocals from Kooper are the real gems here. The amalgamation of pop, classic and jazz, which was made so popular in the Sixties by such groups as Chicago Transit Authority, Colosseum and Soft Machine, is here combined by Blood, Sweat & Tears with the acid-folk-rock mix emanating from San Francisco.

    Chicago II (Awaiting Repress)

    Chicago was founded in 1967 by Walt Parazaider (woodwinds), James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Roert Lamm (keyboards and lead vocals), Terry Kath (guitar and lead vocals), and Danny Seraphine (drums). They called themselves The Big Thing. They added bassist-lead vocalist Peter Cetera and began working with their original producer-manager James William Guercio, subsequently becoming known as Chicago Transit Authority. Their self-titled 1969 debut release was an ambitious mix of free-form rock and horn-influenced jazz, the first of three double LPs that would start their career. The band dropped the Transit Authority and became known as simply Chicago on this, their second album in 1970, which was the first album to carry their trademark logo. Peaking at #4 on the Billboard charts, Chicago II yielded some of the group's most enduring hits, which came from Pankow's suite Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon, emulating the form of the great classical composers from a pop perspective. Remastered with expanded liner notes.
