Ouh la! Ca fait bien longtemps que l'on a plus entendu parler d'eux (mais ils sont toujours en activité encore aujourd'hui!), cependant voilà une bonne occasion de les faire réapparaître avec ce best of!
Les CHICAGO à la discographie impressionnante, 30 albums jusqu'à maintenant, ont surtout été connu chez nous pour leur célèbre slow de l'année 1976. Tube s'il en est, "If you leave now" (#1 USA, #1 G.B., top 5 partout dans le monde, Nov.76) restera le titre le plus emblématique du groupe. Une mélodie imparable, des arrangements somptueux, bref, un titre inoubliable et magique...
Néanmoins, ce serait leur faire injure de les réduire à ce tube! Car au long de ce best of retracé chronologiquement, on y découvre d'autres petites merveilles ("25 or 6 to 4", "Make me smile", "Wishing you were here", "Does anybody really know...", "Feelin' stronger every day", "Questions 67 and 68", "Colour my world", et j'en passe) à l'énergie rock ou pop vivifiante le tout accompagné d'une section de cuivres subtilement efficace. Cet enthousiasme s'arrête malheureusement au premier CD. Grossièrement jusqu'au décès de Terry Kath (guitariste, chanteur) le 23 Janvier 1978, où le mystère autour de sa mort (roulette russe, accident de tir?) à couru un bout de temps.
Car sur le second CD, l'inspiration se fait beaucoup plus rare. Si "Baby, what a big surprise" et "Hard to say I'm sorry" reste encore dans la même veine, après le départ en 1985 de Peter Cetera (bassiste , chanteur) leur musique se perdra au fur et à mesure dans une pop héroique qui parait bien datée de nos jours ("You're the inspiration", "Will you stil love me", "Look away", "You're not alone, ...).
Quoi qu'il en soit ce best of est indispensable!

HASH(0x970774e0) étoiles sur 5 Never thought I'd say this, skip this one. 11 février 2008
Par musicman37 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
"The Best of Chicago:40th Anniversary Edition" does a grave disservice to all of its fans old and new by including the shorty 45 edits of its hits. That means that '25 or 6 to 4", which runs 4:50 in its full length, only runs 2:53 here. "Beginnings", at 7:51 for its complete version, only runs 2:52 here (even the "Greatest Hits" edit ran 6:26, only editing off the percussion run-off at the end, but leaving the body of the song intact). Doing this is NOT giving good value for the money. Do yourselves a favor - skip this, and pay the extra few dollars for "The Very Best Of Chicago: Only the Beginning". It has more songs, and the early hits are represented by their more complete versions. The current release smacks of what record companies do best: exploit, underestimate, and take advantage of their customers in the name of the almighty dollar.

HASH(0x96ec9270) étoiles sur 5 Chicago - The Radio Hits 17 octobre 2007
Par wr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
People are misinformed about this release. On the front of the CD, it says 30 radio hits, which means these are the songs in the original forms they were released to radio. There is no fooling people unless you don't look at the CD cover (this is on the outside on the plastic packaging, regarding what this oompilation is).

The only exception to this is What Kind of Man which is the LP version, a mistake by the record company.

This edition has comments provided by the band.

So, it is not at all a diservice to the band, but a collection of the songs as they were heard on the radio.

It was only after Chicago was a sucess that radio stations started playing the album versions of the hit singles.

This collection could have been titled: "Chicago: 40 years of radio hits" - so that so many of you would have not have been fooled into thinking it was something the collection is not.

I think it is nice to have all of the original radio releases all in one collection with the insight provided by the band members.

This is what Rhino does, compilations and re-issues, and this is a worthy collection for completists and the casual fan that needs an introduction to Chicago.

HASH(0x971d9210) étoiles sur 5 Horribly Edited Songs 7 octobre 2007
Par Bill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Buyer beware. I only got through the 1st 5 songs of the 1st CD before taking it out of my CD player in disgust. The songs are terribly edited (less than 3 minutes for Beginnings, same for Question 67 & 68). I thought that since there were fewer songs per CD, they would include the full album versions. And there is plenty of room on the CD to do so (only 51 minutes on the 1st CD). Why anybody would want these inferior versions is beyond me. All the Chicago greatest hits CDs suffer the same fate (although the edits on this one are worse than previous ones). Shame on you Rhino! Give us a real greatest hits with the real versions.

HASH(0x96de32e8) étoiles sur 5 FIRST TIME ORIGINAL SINGLE EDITS ON ONE CD 27 décembre 2011
Par xrey® - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've been a Chicago fan and FM top 40 and AC radio guy since the CTA days. In defense of Rhino, they didn't do ANY of these radio edits. Chicago's management and Columbia authorized these so key top 40 chart reporters like the KHJ's, WLS', WABC's of the time would play their hybrid of jazz/fusion/rock, which was very unique sounding to stations still playing pop hits like the Carpenters, Simon & Garfunkel, Jackson 5, and the Partridge Family. It was pretty well understood in the radio & record business that if WLS or WABC didn't play a song it wouldn't sell a million copies or "go gold". (Ask War if their top 10 smash "Low Rider" went gold without WLS' airplay! It didn't.) Many influential (but moronic) program directors hesitated to play singles that exceeded 3-1/2 minutes. Without key radio airplay, a 5 minute plus Chicago cut wouldn't have ever gotten played on top 40, AC radio, or in jukeboxes. (Little known fact: juke box operators stocked shorter songs so they'd see more money. If I saw "Hey Jude" in a jukebox or some other excessively long song, I'd play it a bunch just to get my quarter's worth.) Once the songs became hits, I programmed the LP version on the radio where appropriate, even the 8:27 album version of "American Pie". I even made my own special 4:22 edit of "Make Me Smile" because the 45 was released in mono, and was seriously butchered in my opinion. The album rock competitors were playing the "Ballet for A Girl In Buchanan" suite which is extremely long and self-indulgent to casual "adult contempted" listeners and advertisers for whom I had to cater, so I chose a middle ground. Amazingly, my special long edit of "MMS" now appears on the "Only The Beginning" compilation. I guess it was brought to the attention of Chicago's management after years of airplay in Dallas, or other stations copied my special edit.

Even with all of the b!tching from other "reviewers", Disc 1 only has 6 edits out of 15 songs. I'm not as familiar with all of the songs on Disc 2, but there may be only a couple of radio edits from their Warner/Reprise hits. The track times look to be pretty long (Hard Habit To Break clocking in at 4:44 is NOT the single version, trust me.) So for the money, this limited edition package is unique in many ways, and a good consumer bargain for a price point under $9.

Another great point about this compilation is that Rhino has created a 2-CD set of 30 hits for the price of one CD. This "mid-line" CD has special appeal to the WalMart's/Targets/Best Buy chains who can use this for their budget-conscious customers. Until now, Chicago didn't really have a decent mid-line CD "best of" value for the casual buyer to represent both their Columbia and Warner/Reprise output.

My only complaint is that none of their reissues contain the rare Japanese language version of "Questions 67 and 68" that was on the B-side of the original promo copies...

HASH(0x96d32a20) étoiles sur 5 Remastered Hits 10 février 2008
Par Dr. Dennie Templeton - Publié sur Amazon.com
In many albums that have been remastered, especially groups that have been around as long as Chicago, it is always a tough choice to decide to buy remastered releases. Chicago, as much as any band has had more variations of their music in different release formats with the possible exception of the Beatles and Elvis. I have been listening to Chicago since the first album was released on vinyl. That will give you some idea of how old I am. I have been through their progressive and experimental rock sounds in the 60's, Terry Kath's accidental death, and the departure of Peter Cetera in the 80's. With each change the band shifted gears and tried to recover. Terry provided the hard edge as one of the finest guitarist in rock history and Peter, much like Paul McCartney with the Beatles, wanted to move the band more toward traditional ballads and "love songs". This was not a bad idea because it resulted in a string of songs that extend the life of the band. Listening to If you Leave Me Now and A Hard Habit to Break on the remasterd album and the early Beginnings track emphasized the pronounced rift in the founding members including drummer Danny Seraphine. The sound and tightness of the band changed with each major loss or change in members. The attempt to bring in young talent to infuse the music seemed contrived or forced in the attempt by remaining band members to maintain the core of the group sound and uniqueness. I have seen Chicago seven times over the past 35 years and the last two have been disappointing in that I thought they were going through the motions much like I do from time to time at work.The live event Chicago preformed on the HD Rave satellite channel was the closet to a revival.

Most long time fans that have followed the band like me will dissect and enjoy the individual songs that contributed to the historical body of work. The newer releases will expose the gaps and loss of creative new work. Using a sports analogy, it is like a musical free agency problem. This is truly one of the finest bands that have ever played and, when you heard them the first time in the 1960's. Chicago had a unique and new sound and I can still appreciate and remember the experience in the same way I remembered the Beatles when I heard them the first time. I wish the current band members would bury the hatchet with Peter Cetera, get back in the studio, and go on the road again. Not to play all of the old songs, but to see what they can come up with now. Although The Best of Chicago, 40th Anniversary Edition, is a fine remastered album it is hard to improve on perfection.

D. Templeton
