Chicago - Chicago Transit Authority (50th Anniversary Remix) (2LP)

50th Anniversary Remix On 180g Double LP

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Chicago's groundbreaking platinum debut, mixing engineer Tim Jessup remixed the entire album.

Formed in its namesake city in 1967, Chicago is the first American band ever to propel albums into Billboard's pop Top 40 for five consecutive decades. The group's first two albums were released as double LPs, and their unprecedented fusion of rock, pop, and jazz won Chicago immediate success.

Their debut, Chicago Transit Authority, was originally released in 1969 and climbed to #17 on Billboard's pop albums chart.

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" from their name and became known as simply "Chicago" in 1970.
