5.0 out of 5 stars A (PACKAGING) DREAM COME TRUE!, 13 Sep 2005
By 
C. Schaefer "Da Kraut" (Munich/Germany) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: At Carnegie Hall (Audio CD)
This review is mainly about the packaging. Why? Well, anyone old enough to have purchased the original vinyl LP box set (4 LPs, 3 posters - one covering an entire wall - and a huge booklet, all housed in a sturdy box) knows what a thrill it was to have this gargantuan set in one's collection.
Well, now you can start collecting all over again. The good folks at Rhino decided to replicate the original box for this truly historic release. They created a CD box set just like the original vinyl box, i.e. a sturdy cardboard box, 4 CDs in vinyl inner sleeves, the booklet and the 3 posters - all shrunk to size.
But you get a few bonuses, too. There is additional information in the booklet - and there is almost 1 hour of unreleased music on disc 4 of the set. Yes, they crammed the music of the 4 LPs onto 3 discs and added a fourth disc with additional material from the week Chicago spent at Carnegie Hall in 1971. The focus of this bonus material was on unreleased stuff. However, when sifting through the tapes the compilers found material already out on the original LPs - but different enough to warrant inclusion on the bonus disc. This applies mainly to some scorching Terry Kath guitar solos.
Oh, and just so that you don't forget: of course, the discs were mastered from the original multi-track master tapes and sound smashing!
So now we have a beautiful and definitive set - and it's not an ultra-expensive Japanese import, but a readily available set.
The gist of it all: GET IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding but underrated, 23 Dec 2005
By 
This review is from: At Carnegie Hall (Audio CD)
Bought this after listening to the live cut of '25 or 6 to 4' and 'Ballet for a Girl...'. Outstanding! What i got was a wonderful collection of a sadly underrated band here in the UK. Considering the other bands around at the same time, Chicago hold their own comfortably - in short, they ROCK! I played it through with an increasing sense of respect, and then had to play it again to make sure - i was not disappointed. Having a horns section give them an expansive sound that is nothing less than powerful. Terry Kath is a revelation as a rock guitarist, any one of a number of solos standing up against the work of his better known peers. The whole band is a tight unit and anyone with an interest in great live rock albums should have this in their collection; its energetic and electrifying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicago IV, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Carnegie Hall (Audio CD)
i bought the original album Xmas 1970 and still have vinyl but havent played it for 20 years. The cd rocks and reminds me what a great band Chicago was and what an awesome guitarist Terry Kath was. The concert reminds me of a time when rock/jazz/blues fusion was at its best, coupled with song lyrics that raised social issues such as Vietnam war, money,corruption and pollution. I would have loved to have been at Carnegie Hall that week and these concerts along with Cream's reunion at Albert Hall and Otis Reading at Monterey are the 3 concerts I would have loved to have attended. wellzee
