Emerging from Chicago in 1967, the band moved on to become one of the biggest bands in the world. Their music includes several influences ranging from classical music to pop, rock, and R&B. The original line-up comprising Peter Cetera, Terry Kath, Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, Watler Parazaider, and Danny Seraphine, released the band’s self-titled debut album in 1969. The effort became an instant commercial success, entering the U.S. Billboard 200, as well as charts in several other countries.
Beginning in 1972, the band reached number 1 five times in a row with their studio and compilation releases. In 1975, the first compilation album, Chicago IX: Chicago’s Greatest Hits, sold over five million copies in the U.S. Their next best-selling compilation, Greatest Hits 1982 -1989, was released 17 years later.
In 1984, the band dropped their best-selling effort, Chicago 17. The album sold over six million copies in the U.S. By this time, the band was already belting out soft rock staples. Chicago 17 was known for spawning the hits “Stay the Night,” “Hard Habit to Break,” “You’re the Inspiration,” and “Along Comes a Woman.”
