Following up their album Chicago III, this historic set features all the early hits and spotlights Chicago at the peak of their initial success.
Painstakingly remastered, it now includes a full disc of previously unreleased material showcasing their trademark horns, Robert Lamm's keyboards and vocals, and the guitar virtuosity of the late Terry Kath. The set's packaging makes a nod to the original LP release, with an outer cardboard slipcase, four CDs in individual jackets, a page booklet with original LP artwork, and mini-reproductions of the three huge posters that were part of the original release.
Also known as Chicago 4, this is not a double studio album, but 'would you believe it a quadruple live album that came in, a luxurious boxset including Volume II (Vinyl superb booklet and a few poster, including a 3-D plan of the Carnegie venue. This awesome package not that expensive either back then was simply unsurpassed during the 70's, the only downside being the overly-simple bland Questions 67 & 68 - Chicago (2) - Greatest Hits.
It is a little dismaying to see that most of the first two discs is entirely keyboardist Lamm's composition, and if in the last two discs, the selection is slightly more even, the lion's share is still Lamm's. All three studio albums prior to this Live release are well equally-well represented and we're getting almost systematically the best tracks of each, something rather rare, even back then.
Naturally you have to wait until the last of the eight flipsides to reach the two exhilarating numbers of 25 or 6 to 4 or the cover of Spencer Davis Group's classic I'm A Man. This album has been released in Mini Lp form and can also serve as an excellent intro to the band's oeuvre.
The first record that I had on this live album was in cassettes in the forms of 2 x C60 and I was really amazed with the ambience and performance by Chicago - it's so Volume II (Vinyl. It's because of so may solo sections throughout the record. This is their first live album that was initially released as a four LP vinyl box set on Columbia Records.
Deciding that most of the songs performed there virtually, the first three double albums, together with the new "A Song For Richard And His Friends" were worthy of release, producer James William Guercio compiled a mammoth four-LP box set collection for release as Chicago's fourth album that distinction being responsible for the album's nickname of Chicago IV.
My version is now a double CD album. Actually, what makes me like this album mostly on the band's brave decision to record the whole concert so that listening to this album is for me like watching them live. The flow of the concert is really excellent and Questions 67 & 68 - Chicago (2) - Greatest Hits creates another great experience when I play the CD.
Another favorite of mine "Questions 67 and 68" is also performed nicely. That's just an example. The rest is a demonstration on how excellent the band is. Overall, it's really highly recommended album that you should have. Keep on proggin'!!!

Tell Me Why Old Man After the Gold Rush Flying on the Ground is Wrong Cowgirl in the Sand In DecemberNeil was in Los Angeles resting with a bad back at the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard when the next major love of his life arrived.
Neil had read a magazine feature about her and been immediately captivated. When he found out Carrie was in town, performing in a theatrical production in downtown Los Angeles at the Mark Taper Forum, Neil tracked down her number, called her up, or had an associate or road manager invite her to visit an ailing rock star in his time of need. I worked a double-shift at the West Los Angeles College library to earn the money for my ticket. The album, Buffalo Springfield Again began in This is for Neil Young.
We can make a great record. Jack knew Neil would eventually become a solo star. I sort of took over and became the producer and made Crazy Horse sound much better than they actually were. I was on tour them years ago, Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Miles Davis opened for us at the Filmore East. I thought it was for a Neil Young album, because he was supposed to be breaking away and going on his own.
Hal Blaine and Jim Horn are on the track. I played piano and organ. I had some little head chart arrangement to work from and another of the tunes might have been sketched. It was pretty wide open with the chord changes. And once you see them live you can understand their records. But it does happen.
Goodness gracious. I knew he was a songwriter. Some of the tunes were movies. They were scripts. To me, Neil was like another Bob Dylan. He could do Dylan but I think he did Dylan his way.
It was Neil Young. Neil would show up by himself. You have to realize that as great as a musician and as great as a songwriter he is, Neil would also realize talent himself. He realized a sound that he liked from a guitar. Neil knew that the only way to get it was to have that guitar. Neil liked LP) experiment. He had the time to take his time. I like this. Ahmet encouraged the guys in Buffalo Springfield to write and do demos at Gold Star. I lived at Gold Star throughout the entire sixties.
Ahmet and Nesuhi Ertegun were two of the smartest people in the record business. They almost signed me to Atlantic. He was smart enough to know what he wanted and knew how to get it. Neil wrote cinematically and Jack arranged cinematically.
I was driving around in my Volkswagen bus and this chick Lorraine pulls up next to me in a big Lincoln who eventually married Dave Mason. And I became a friend of his. I earlier met her in Hawaii when I went to see Rick Nelson play. She had gone to Westlake School for Girls and a band I had would play there. We go to his house.
