"Chicago V" was another huge multi-platinum plus smash for Chicago. Featuring the original award winning line-up of Robert Lamm (lead vocals/keyboards), Peter Cetera (lead vocals/bass), Terry Kath (lead vocals/guitars), the legendary horns of Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Walter Parazaider (saxophone/woodwinds), James Pankow (trombone) plus Danny Seraphine (drums), "Chicago V" is undoubtedly one of their biggest selling albums and is also one of the most revered offerings in their huge catalog.
In terms of classic rock statistics, It was also their first single disc album, after 3 double albums and one four LP release. It was their first album to achieve #1 status, and was followed by 4 more number one albums in a row!
Buoyed by the success of huge hit singles like "Saturday In The Park" and "Dialogue (Part One & Part Two)", their fifth album was filled of with more smashes like the power driven opener "A Hit By Verése", the prophetic hard rocker "State Of The Union" and the fan favorite "All Is Well."
Many of the fine tunes on this well crafted album also feature the sorely missed vocals and guitar of Terry Kath, where he truly shines on tracks like the funk infused hits "Dialogue (Part One & Part Two)" and his ballad and album closer "Alma Mater", both of which make this fine album even more of a treasure trove of classic rock enjoyment.
Celebrating 50 years of this 1972 classic, Friday Music is very pleased to continue our
