Chicago Re-Records Classics, On The Road Through Septemember
Chicago has announced its full summer itinerary, with shows now running through September 15th in Indianapolis. The band has just tacked three new stops onto the tour -- with dates now on the books for June 25th in Lewiston, New York; August 13th in Midland, Texas; and August 17th in Alpharetta, Georgia. Newly released is Chicago's latest studio set, called The Nashville Sessions. The set features the band painstakingly re-creating 15 of their classic tracks to sound as close to the originals as possible.
 
The tracklisting for The Nashville Sessions is: "25 Or 6 To 4," "Make Me Smile," "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," "Beginnings," "Saturday In The Park," "Colour My World," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?," "Questions 67 And 68," "Old Days," "Just You N' Me," "Call On Me," "Another Rainy Day In New York City," "No Tell Lover," "(I've Been) Searchin' So Long," and "Alive Again." The set can be purchased via http://chicago.spinshop.com/.

Keyboardist Robert Lamm admitted that he's under no illusions that Chicago today is anything like the Chicago of 1969 -- which featured the band's iconic late guitarist Terry Kath: "That band, as short-lived as it was, (laughs) in the scheme of 40 years -- that band was just an amazing band. And whatever Chicago is now, and whatever is called Chicago now, is not the Chicago that made those albums in the early '70s. I haven't heard anybody since that plays like that. I constantly struggle, and I constantly feel like I'm in a negotiation with the rest of the guys in the band nowadays to try to re-adopt the original attitudes that the original band had that Terry was such a driving force in."
