Chicago VII is the sixth studio album by American rock band Chicago and was released in 1974. It is notable for being their first double album of new material since 1971's Chicago III, and remains their final studio release in that format. It also features session percussionist Laudir de Oliveira, who had become a full-fledged band member.
As such, Chicago VII (1974) was not only a double LP, but much of the effort likewise returned them to their former jazz/rock glory while continuing the middle-of-the-road (MOR) ethos that was concurrently impacting the pop charts.
The Box is a five-CD/one DVD career-spanning box set by popular American group Chicago and was compiled and released through Rhino Records in 2003. The set was authorized by the band, which helped choose material from its entire back catalogue. The box includes material from every studio album released by the band since its 1969 debut Chicago Transit Authority to its late 1990s recordings, along with a few rarities, notably three songs from the then-unreleased 1993 Stone of Sisyphus project.
Chicago VII is a music studio album recording by CHICAGO (Jazz ive Rock) released in 1974 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. This is really the forgotten great Chicago album, and I would rank this second overall in great Chicago albums only trailing the debut. Yes, there are a few schmaltzy pop tracks (thank you Cetera) that sort of create a buzzkill, but there are many other great pop tracks that more than balance them out.
