Chicago was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month, and now comes word that a new box set featuring high-quality Blu-ray Audio versions of most of the band’s early albums will be released on June 17.
Chicago Quadio is a nine-disc collection boasting new quadrophonic and stereo mixes of the horn-driven rock act’s first eight studio efforts, and of the group’s 1975 greatest-hits compilation.
The box set, which will sell for a suggested list price of $159.98, will replicate the original sleeves and packaging of the nine albums, including mini posters and an iron-on that came with 1975’s Chicago VIII. All of the albums have been remastered in both quadrophonic and stereo.
Among the many classic songs featured on the Chicago Quadio collection are “Beginnings,” “Make Me Smile,” “Saturday in the Park,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “Colour My World,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Just You ‘n’ Me,” “Old Days,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” and the chart-topping “If You Leave Me Now.”
