Album of the Day
CHICAGO II: STEVEN WILSON REMIX
Released in 1970, Chicago’s second album brims with confidence and inspiration as it draws on everything from orchestral music to heavy rock. Principal composers James Pankow and Robert Lamm emerged further as the band's source of Top Ten hits for the group, including “Make Me Smile” and “Colour My World,” as well as “25 or 6 to 4,” which peaked at #4 on the singles chart and has become one of the group's signature songs. As popular as the record was (it reached #4 on the album chart), the mix has always left something to be desired – until now. On CHICAGO II: STEVEN WILSON REMIX, the British musician and producer took all the isolated elements from the recording sessions and rebuilt the mix from the drums up to create a new stereo version that adds clearness, punch and definition to one of Chicago's very best albums.
