CHICAGO IX: CHICAGO’S GREATEST HITS
Chicago is the first American band to release Top 40 albums in five successive decades, and it certainly seems like they've been making hits forever. When CHICAGO IX, the group's first best-of collection, started a five-week run atop the U.S. album chart in 1975 it became their fifth No.1 album. The collection culls 11 highlights from the band's first five years, including “25 Or 6 To 4,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is” and “Saturday In The Park.” While the Peter Cetera-led balladry of the next decade would bring Chicago even more Gold records, these are the hits that put Chicago on the musical map. We'll give CHICAGO IX: CHICAGO’S GREATEST HITS another spin now to wish original drummer Danny Seraphine a happy 75th birthday.
