In 40 years, Chicago has done it all -- five consecutive #1 albums, 13 platinum albums, 21 Top 10 singles, a Grammy and a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Five years after it began restoring the band's extensive catalog, Rhino Records salutes one of America's best-selling and longest-running bands with a newly compiled, two-CD set that encompasses the group's entire recording history.

Formed in their namesake city in 1967, Chicago’s music mixed rock, pop, and jazz in a completely new way, Propelled by innovative horn arrangements, the band’s commercial potential was soon apparent; when in 1970 the band hit the charts with its first of 21 Top 10 singles. The group would go on to score five consecutive #1 albums starting in 1972 with "Chicago V", and concluding with "Chicago IX – Chicago’s Greatest Hits". In a career both influential and extensive, Chicago has sold more than 100 million records and continues to tour every year to SRO audiences.

Spanning Chicago’s entire career -- from its 1969 debut "Chicago Transit Authority" to 2006’s "Chicago XXX" -- the 30-song, double-disc anthology contains 30 Top 40 radio tracks including a trio of #1 smashes: “Look Away,” “Hard To Say I’m Sorry,” and the Grammy-winning “If You Leave Me Now.” Sequenced chronologically, the first disc features “Make Me Smile,” the band’s first Top 10 hit, along with “Does Any One Really Know What Time It Is?” and “Beginnings” from the band’s debut, “Colour My World” from "Chicago II", “Saturday In The Park” from "Chicago V" and the group’s signature “25 Or 6 To 4.” The second disc continues the hit parade with the epic rock ballad “Love Me Tomorrow,” plus “You’re The Inspiration” and “Hard Habit To Break” from the back-to-back hit albums "Chicago 16" (1982) and "Chicago 17" (1984) before concluding with the 2006 hit, “Love Will Come Back.”
