Reissue of 2003 Christmas Album!

This Christmas album features Chicago's interpretations of well-known Christmas classics alongside an original tune co-written by Lee Loughnane. In August 1998, Chicago released Chicago XXV: The Christmas Album. In 2003, Rhino Records reissued the album with the title "What's It Gonna Be, Santa?" adding six newly recorded tracks.

Chicago is an American rock band formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. The "rock and roll band with horns" began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads. The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Second only to The Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands, Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups in history.

According to Billboard, Chicago was the leading US singles charting group during the 1970s. They have sold over 38 million units in the US, with 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Over the course of their career they have had five number-one albums and 21 top-ten singles.

"...the whole album, pristinely produced by E Street Band pianist Roy Bittan, was well performed. It sounded exactly like you would expect a Chicago Christmas album to sound, and if you liked the band and holiday music, you'd like the record, too." -William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
