The Chicago/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Continues!
Celebrate The 45th Anniversary Of Their Debut Masterpiece Chicago Transit Authority!
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso And Lee Loughnane From Chicago!
Chicago Transit Authority was the first chapter in a long line of multiplatinum smash albums
for Chicago which begun in 1969. Featuring the original award winning line-up of Robert Lamm
(lead vocals/keyboards), Peter Cetera (lead vocals/bass), Terry Kath (lead vocals/guitars), the
legendary horns of Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Walter Parazaider (saxophone/woodwinds), James
Pankow (trombone) plus Danny Seraphine (drums), Chicago Transit Authority is undoubtedly one
of the biggest selling albums of the classic rock era and is also one of the most revered offerings
in their huge catalog. Buoyed by the success of huge hit singles like Does Anybody Really Know
What Time It Is?, Questions 67 and 68 and Beginnings, Chicago's debut album was filled with so
many great songs, it could be its own greatest hits collection.
Further smashes like the powerful funkified version of I'm a Man, the stellar Introduction,
plus the late Terry Kath masterwork Free Form Guitar all truly make this fine album even more
of a treasure trove of classic rock enjoyment.
It's been several decades since the rare original vinyl version of C.T.A. has been available
that is until now! Friday Music is very honored to continue the CHICAGO 180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE
