Hailed as one of the "most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era" by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in at #4, the highest charting American band in the charts history, in Billboard Magazine's recent Top Bands And Duos. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.Chicago was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! This was their first nomination. Theyve beeneligible since 1994. A long time coming!Chicago's first album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2014, and the band performed on the Grammy stage for the first time that year.Robert Lamm and James Pankow have become the latest inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017. These legendary songwriters wrote mega-hits such as, "25 or 6 to 4," "Saturday In The Park," "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," "Make Me Smile," and many others. More than 40 years after its debut, Chicago II still sounds like nothing else. Released in 1970, Chicagos second album brims with confidence and inspiration as it draws on everything from orchestral music to heavy rock. It spawned a trio of Top Ten hits, and the timeless classic has been remastered to reveal unprecedented clarity and definition. For the first time a new stereo remix, created by British musician and producer Steven Wilson from the 16-track multi-track tapes, made it possible to bring out elements that were muffled or submerged in the mix. The result is a new stereo version of CHICAGO II that boasts clearness, punch and definition that it didnt have before. It has recently been released by Rhino Records on CD and vinyl.CHICAGOs award-winning documentary film, Now More Than Ever: The History Of Chicagopremiered on CNN on New Years Day and ranked No. 1 among adults 25-54.
