The thirteenth “greatest hits” or official “best of” release, this album could easily have been given the title Chicago XXXVII or XXXVIII, but ever since 2014 and the last studio production to date, titled Now, even the band can’t be bothered to count anymore! This compilation doesn’t include classics such as 26 or 6 to 4, Make Me Smileor Colour My World (an extract from the concept suite Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon). This won’t come as a surprise to the many who are still following the long journey of this famous group.

This album focuses on the second part of Chicago II − Live on Soundstage, when singer-bassist Jeff Coffey was still in the central role once occupied by the all-pervasive Peter Cetera. He has since been replaced by Neil Donell on vocals (and guitar) and Brett Simons on bass. He still works wonders on the excellent If You Leave Me Now, Hard to Say I’m Sorry / Get Away and Feelin’ Stronger Every Day but it’s clear that the three co-founders, Robert Lamm (keyboards, vocals), Lee Loughnane (trumpet) and James Pankow (trombone), are the ones leading the way. Originally, the three musicians wanted to pay tribute to late guitarist Terry Kath and to themselves with a large majority of their own compositions, Lamm getting the lion’s share with five tracks. Here we’re just a bit frustrated by the finale which includes the first riffs from the Beatles’Got to Get You Into My Life without going any further, as opposed to the wonderful finale of Live in 75 – Chicago XXXIV, released in 2011. – Jean-Pierre Sabouret
