Album of the Day
Chicago Transit Authority (50th Anniversary Remix)
Chicago's debut album, CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY (self-titled at the time), was a groundbreaking double-LP that showcased the band's imaginative writing, proficient musicality and genre-blending mix of rock, jazz, funk and pop. The 1969 collection includes several of the group's most-enduring hits: "Beginnings," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and "Questions 67 and 68." The set topped the album chart (it remained on the chart for an amazing three-year run), was certified double platinum and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. In celebration of the album's 50th anniversary, Chicago worked with mixing engineer Tim Jessup to remix the entire album; CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY (50th ANNIVERSARY REMIX) is now available on CD, 180-gram vinyl and in a limited, numbered edition on gold vinyl available exclusively through Rhino.com.
