Chicago Transit Authority by Chicago

For my 669th review, I want to review an album from of my favorite bands of all time.  Chicago Transit Authority is the self-titled debut album by the Chicago-based rock band Chicago Transit Authority, later known as Chicago.  This great debut album was released April 28, 1969, on the Columbia Records label.  At this time it was unusual for a band to release a double album for their debut release, but Chicago Transit Authority was an exception to the rule.  This album spawned three great singles Questions 67 and 68, Beginnings, and Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is.  In addition these singles, I loved the tracks Listen and I’m A Man.  I was so impressed with how well this album was written, performed, recorded and produced.  From there I started to collect every Chicago vinyl album I could get my hands on.  I highly recommend this album to anyone’s record collection.
