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.

This would be the last Chicago album to feature guitarist, and founding member, Terry Kath (On January 23, 1978, a few short months after Chicago XI's release, Terry Kath, regarded by many as the soul of Chicago, accidentally and fatally shot himself during a party at roadie Don Johnson's house), and the last Chicago album to be produced by James William Guercio.
