Chicago Chicago Transit Authority: 50th Anniversary Remix 180g Vinyl 2LP
Chicago Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Record-Setting 1969 Debut with Newly Remixed 180g Vinyl 2LP Version by Engineer Tim Jessup!
Chicago's debut album, Chicago Transit Authority (self-titled at the time), was a groundbreaking double-LP that showcased the band's imaginative writing, proficient musicality and genre-blending mix of rock, jazz, funk and pop. In recognition of its enduring influence, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2014. In celebration of the album's 50th anniversary, Chicago worked with mixing engineer Tim Jessup to remix the entire album for a brand new 180g vinyl 2LP release.
Originally released in April 1969, Chicago Transit Authority topped the album chart, was certified double platinum and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. The album also has the unique distinction of having stayed on the charts for an amazing three-year run (171 weeks); a record when it was released. This classic album includes several of the group's most-enduring hits: "Beginnings," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and "Questions 67 and 68." It also features the signature guitar work of the late Terry Kath on "South California Purple," "Free Form Guitar" and a blazing cover of "I'm A Man."
The album features Kath, keyboardist Robert Lamm, bassist Peter Cetera, drummer Danny Seraphine and Chicago's legendary horn section: Lee Loughnane (trumpet), James Pankow (trombone), and Walt Parazaider (saxophone).
