EU-only 10 CD box containing the first decade of studio recordings by the veteran Pop/Rock outfit. Chicago began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads. Once the group began making records, fans rewarded the group with record sales of 100,000,000, 21 Top 10 singles, five consecutive #1 albums, 11 Number One Singles and five Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 32 albums have been certified platinum. To date, Chicago is the first American band to chart Top 40 albums in five decades - a landmark accomplishment. Housed in a small clamshell box, The Studio Albums 1969-1978 contains 10 CDs in paper-sleeve mini-jackets.
The teaming of legendary groups Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire was the tour hit of summer 2004. Playing to sold-out venues, this spectacular show brought the GRAMMY-winning artists together in a show that both individually and together highlighted their revolutionary melding of rock, soul and jazz as well as their numerous #1 and Top 10 hits. Now you can have a front-row seat for this amazing concert, performed at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Every moment, all the energy and excitement of this final show of the tour, was captured in high-definition for this extraordinary DVD.
"…Even so, The Very Best of Sheryl Crow does capture her biggest and best songs, adding two good new songs to the mix (a cover of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut Is the Deepest," which uses Rod Stewart's version as the starting point, and the solid new song "Light in Your Eyes"), that in turn capture the feel of the '90s by proxy." ~Allmusic
Chicago Blues: A Living History is a tribute to the past, present and future of the Chicago Blues. It pays homage to its creators, its rich history, its current practitioners, and its singular place in the (r)evolution of 20th century American music. This is not an anthology or a compilation of what came before. With this CD, history is being made at the same time it is being presented. It is not a retro recording, rather it is intended to be the opposite. This recording, on two discs, allows the listener to hear the evolution of the Chicago Blues sound in chronological order from the 1940s to the present as interpreted by four Chicago bluesmen that have inherited this tradition. Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Billy Branch and Lurrie Bell are the bridge between the originators of the genre and the Chicago Blues of today–each of them has a foot in a generation of Chicago Blues history right up to present day; through them the Chicago Blues remains a living tradition.
