Chicago II was the second chapter in a long line of multi-platinum smash albums for Chicago beginning in 1969. Featuring the original award-winning lineup of Robert Lamm (lead vocals/keyboards), Peter Cetera (lead vocals/bass), Terry Kath (lead vocals/guitars), the legendary horns of James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Walter Parazaider (saxophone/woodwinds), plus Danny Seraphine (drums), Chicago II is undoubtedly one of the biggest-selling albums of the classic rock era and also one of the most revered offerings in their huge catalog. Buoyed by the success of hit singles like "Make Me Smile," "25 or 6 to 4" and "Colour My World," Chicago's stunning follow-up to their debut smash Chicago Transit Authority was filled with so many great songs, it could be its own greatest hits collection.
Further smashes like the powerful "It Better End Soon" suite, the stellar "Wake Up Sunshine," plus the late Terry Kath masterwork "In the Country" all truly make this fine album even more of a treasure trove of classic rock enjoyment.
