Chicago - Chicago II

 (Limited Anniversary Edition)




Limited edition 180-gram vinyl

Mastered from the original Chicago Records master tapes

Chicago II was the second chapter in a long line of multiplatinum smash albums for Chicago which begun in 1969. Featuring the original award winning lineup of Robert Lamm (lead vocals/keyboards), Peter Cetera (lead vocals/bass), Terry Kath (lead vocals/guitars), the legendary horns of James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Walter Parazaider (saxophone/woodwinds), plus Danny Seraphine (drums), Chicago II is undoubtedly one of the biggest selling albums of the classic rock era and also one of the most revered offerings in their huge catalog. Buoyed by the success of huge hit singles like "Make Me Smile", "25" Or "6 To 4" and "Colour My World," Chicago’s stunning follow-up to their debut smash Chicago Transit Authority was filled with so many great songs, it could be its own greatest hits collection.

Further smashes like the powerful "It Better End Soon" Suite, the stellar "Wake Up Sunshine" plus the late Terry Kath masterwork "In The Country" 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 Chicago II has been available…that is until now! Mastered impeccably from the original Chicago Records master tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, along with Chicago’s Lee Loughnane, this album is truly a thrilling audiophile vinyl release.
