Chicago has no shortage of classic albums deserving of updating. Myself, I’m waiting hopefully for the 50th Anniversary expanded update of Chicago V in 2022. One of those worthy albums is Chicago at Carnegie Hall. Originally released in 1971, the album was a hit with fans. Chicago was one of the first Rock bands to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall, and did so over 6 nights. Chicago at Carnegie Hall went Gold in just two weeks, and doubled that in 15 years since release. It was reissued in 2005 with expanded content.

On September 10, a 16CD box of Chicago at Carnegie Hall will be made available D2C (Direct to Consumers) as an indie option via webstore. Yes, it will be pricey but if you’re a Chicago fan and love this original album, this would be a must have pickup. The 16CD box will be called Chicago Live At Carnegie Hall Complete.  All six nightly shows in their entirety will be included as will two matinee performances.

The three original posters will be replicated and a 28-page book will be packed in.

What a package!

(Apologies for the cut ‘n paste but the offering was not perfect and so I decided to offer it as is)
