Now that I have a car, and a nice stereo in it, this sounds good really loud and I am 14 again. Did you know Chicago opened for Hendrix? Hendrix said the late Terry Kath was a better guitar player than he was, Jimmy Pankow and the rest of the guys on horns? Sweet. Nobody sounds like this band and nobody sounds better. Tight.

If all you knew of Chicago (the band) was based solely on their post-1982 output (which consisted primarily of monstrous, hook-friendly hits for the lovelorn that could put the population of many small countries into a Diabetic coma) - than you are missing out on some of the most adventurous and experimental rock ever created by not digging deeper into their earlier catalog.

There is little argument that at their creative peak (1967-1976) the horn-based ensemble redefined and blurred the boundaries of acid rock, jazz fusion and classical composition into an exquisitely intricate string of Top 40 and AOR hits. In the annals of rock history they are, for better or worse, the "Beatles in Reverse."

Whereas the Lads from Liverpool evolved from a very simple singles band into a complex stew of psychedelia and political anthem-making, Chicago''s canvass unfortunately became very small - initially wrapping progressive social protest around long form composition to a final (and current) incarnation as a lyrically bereft hits band, sans horns and any palpable creative pulse.

While regrettable, their regress in no way diminishes the stature of their initial output (Chicago Transit Authority - Chicago VII) of which Chicago V stands as the most accessible exemplar of their signature sound. As their first single-disc offering, after a string of double-disc+ releases, their sound is tight, the horns bright and the harmonies complex all punctuated by a cohesive mood flow and lyrics, that while dated by the politics of the time; did aspire to something beyond an unremarkable Hallmark Moment. It is also worth mentioning that the record contains their biggest and greatest hit (IMHO) - Saturday In The Park - a song that ranks as one of the Top 20 singles of all time.

If you want to capture a great band in peak form, book a ticket to Chicago V. Highly recommended!

Great tunes, tight arrangements, killer playing, and a band at its best: these are the elements of CHICAGO V. As (arguably) my favorite Chicago release, the recent Rhino remaster is very much welcome.

Recorded in just 8 days in 1972, CHICAGO V showcases the elements that made Chicago great. To begin with, tunesmith Robert Lamm is at the top of his game here, contributing the vast majority of the songs. Secondly, the horn arrangements (mostly by James Pankow) rip. And finally, guitarist Terry Kath blisters across the canvass.

The set opens with the jam, "A Hit by Varese." The horns trade solos over a sophisticated backbeat and the result is an experimental tune that just makes for great listening. The follw-up, "All Is Well," features gorgeous vocal harmonies.

Slamming drums open Pankow''s excellent rocker "Now That You''ve Gone" with a lead vocal growled by Kath and a closing Walt Parazaider alto solo that builds to a frenzied climax. "Dialogue" features great Kath/Pete Cetera vocal interplay and counter-culture commentary dressed up in a catchy melody. "While the City Sleeps" does much the same with a more straightforward rock beat.

"Saturday in the Park" is the big hit here, and it''s rare to find a pop tune so well crafted. Lamm sings it, and well. The rocker "State of the Union" (featuring a Lee Loughnane trumpet solo) is followed up by the sweeping "Goodbye," effectively sung by Cetera (and again featuring a Lougnane trumpet solo). The original closer, Kath''s "Alma Mater," is a nostalgic tune with a nice chord progression and, in all, leaves the listener with a good feeling.

Being a reissue, there are bonus tracks. In this case, there''s a "vocal-less" version of Lamm''s "A Song for Richard and His Friends" (never one of my favorites), and an early version of Kath''s "Mississippi Delta City Blues" (which appears in its definitive version on CHICAGO XI). Both are certainly listenable. The final track is the single-edit of "Dialogue," which, truth be told, suffers in edited form.

The CD features some photos and decent liner notes. As is the case with all Rhino Chicago reissues, there isn''t much difference in the sound from the original production thanks to the innovation of James William Guercio. Still, the remaster is welcome and the price is right.

This album rocks, and if you like Robert Lamm as singer and composer get it, since he wrote most of the material. The CD starts out powerfully with ''A Hit by Varese,'' a tune that employs one of the traditional Chicago styles: crisp, driving keyboard and great brass harmonies with catchy brass solos and later fast-moving guitar ditties that together make you wonder why this isn''t on one of the band''s greatest-hits soundtracks. Play this song LOUDLY! The album keeps sharp, highlighted by (IMHO) the introspective and sarcastic'' Dialogue Parts I and II,'' the peppy ''While the City Sleeps, and one of Chicago''s classics: ''Saturday in the Park.'' Rhino even upgraded the already great album by adding three bonus tracks, of which ''Mississippi Delta Blues'' is cool and bluesy with Terry Kath jazzing it up with the brass. Good stuff! Chicago V is a lot of fun, and I recommend it heartily.

Have to admit, I hated most of this album when I first heard it many years ago, but recent interest in the band prompted a re-listen of some of the tracks and then a purchase of this Rhino reissue. It grows on you and is a testament to Robert Lamm that 8/10 original songs were his own. The other two tracks were written by James Pankow and Terry Kath with no Peter Cetera tracks in sight! First up it''s the jazzy `A hit for Varese''. The sleeve notes explain the rather odd title. It''s a Lamm sung feast of brass, minor sounding chords and little guitar in evidence. The second track `All is well'' is much more soothing, Lamm and Cetera share lead vocals with more brassy accompaniment. The James Pankow song `Now that you''ve gone'' is sung by Terry Kath (and a later verse by Cetera) in his earthy style although as with `Varese'' it''s predominantly a brassy instrumental. Dialogue Parts 1&2 is wonderful. Great intro with Cetera''s bass very much to the fore, it''s definitely two songs linked together with a common theme. Part 1 sees `naive'' Cetera playing the college student `talking'' to Kath who urges him to consider all the things wrong in the world and do something about it. Part 2 sees the band repeating the line `we can change the world, we can make it happen''. A minor single chart entry this in the US, it''s probably not single material but a great album track. Off to what was side 2 of the original record and `While the City sleeps'' is a lively prelude. The superb `Saturday in the Park'' follows next, surely one of Lamms greatest tunes telling of the wonders of going to the Park on the 4th of July. You can picture the scene of hot sunshine, celebration, excitement and everyone enjoying a day off work. The song was Chicago''s biggest US chart hit at the time reaching number 3. I''ve not heard `Black and white'' by Three Dog Night and `Baby don''t get me hooked'' by Mac Davis, but they must have been damn good songs to stop this reaching the top spot. `State of the Union'' follows with some aggressive vocals from Cetera and Kath''s guitar more in evidence than elsewhere. The fade out on this track seems never ending! `Goodbye'' is more Cetera singing and a gentler song with lots of brass. Last up is Kath''s `Alma Mater'' and it''s a tuneful, acoustic sing-along close to the album in a laid back style. The first bonus track `A Song for Richard and his friends'' knocks you for six. Kath''s guitar, buried for most of the original album cuts loose here with some very Hendrix like bursts. This leads into the riff based main sections of the song (devoid of vocals). It''s difficult to give a full appreciation of the track in this form (I believe it was about Richard Nixon) but it''s certainly a worthwhile bonus eight minutes. Second bonus is an early, longer version of `Mississippi Delta Blues'' later on Chicago Xi. Nice riffs and vocals from Terry Kath on his own song. Last bonus track is a shorter version of `Dialogue'' as released as a single. Verdict: Glad I went back for a second listen!

Chicago V is the band''s successful transitional album. Having established both progressive and pop credentials on the first three Chicago albums, V is the point where popular considerations begin to dominate. The album leads off with a statement of purpose, “A Hit By Varese”, seeking to marry both impulses, and also features two hit singles (including the #3 “Saturday in the Park”). By dropping their previous double-album format, the band’s best qualities were preserved (melodic hooks, socially reflective lyrics, intricate arrangements, multi-voiced singing) while the more indulgent tendencies and experiments (guitar freak-outs, poems, multi-song suites, found sounds) were eliminated. Robert Lamm delivers 8 of the original album’s 10 tracks, most of which deal with the theme of change (“All is Well”, “While the City Sleeps” and “State of the Union”). James Pankow adds the upbeat break-up number “Now that You’ve Gone” and Terry Kath, the equally nostalgic “Alma Mater”. Lamm’s “Goodbye” is a kiss-off to “boring” L.A. as the band would soon decamp to producer James William Guercio’s Caribou Ranch for their next series of albums. Chicago V is a tight, tuneful collection and stands as one of their best. The Rhino rerelease adds a jammy “A Song for Richard…” (done live on Chicago IV), a first attempt at Kath’s “Mississippi Delta City Blues” and the single edit of “Dialogue (Parts I & II)”.
