4.0 out of 5 stars Chicago 36, 4 Dec. 2011
This review is from: The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
Cracking value this. 36 tracks from a band that has been around for decades, complete with nice packaging showing most of the album sleeves (with the Coca Cola like Chicago logo incorporated into different scenes) and some adequate sleeve notes. The compilers have sympathetically arranged the songs such that disc one contains more of the well known radio friendly stuff compared to disc two that contains a number of slightly heavier and obscure numbers. Me, I like both, but for 'in car' listening with the wife, disc one fits the bill much better. There are too many highlights to comment on here - just read the track listing and you'll see what I mean. If I had been choosing the selections then I would have liked to have seen 'Loser with a broken heart' from '13' and 'Love me tomorrow' from '16'. Otherwise the quality is high throughout. One word of warning though (and this alone warrants knocking off one star), the version of '25 or 6 to 4' is the EDITED single version running at under three minutes instead of the full four minute version. We lose a verse plus much of Terry Kath's superb guitar solo - a real shame as the disc runs at 73 mins 24 secs, so there is easily enough room to have included the full length version. Conversely, 'Get away' the short song that 'Hard to say I'm sorry' merges into IS included despite not being billed on the track listing, and 'Song for you' billed as 'Single version' sounds identical to the version on the album 'Chicago XIV'.
