In 1967, Chicago musicians Walter Parazaider, Terry Kath, Danny Seraphine, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Robert Lamm, and Peter Cetera formed a group with one dream, to integrate all the musical diversity from their beloved city and weave a new sound, a rock 'n' roll band with horns.
Their dream turned into record sales topping the 100,000,000 mark, including 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 34 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards.
Originally issued in 1975, Chicago IX: Chicago's Greatest Hits is the band's first best of album and ninth album overall, collecting material ranging from their 1969 debut The Chicago Transit Authority through to 1974's Chicago VII. Topping the Billboard album charts for five solid weeks, the four times platinum blockbuster release gathers such signature Chicago classics as "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?," "Saturday in the Park," and "Beginnings."
