This incredible value CD box set comprises five original albums housed in individual cardboard sleeves. This set includes the following five albums: Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago II, Chicago V, Chicago VI and Chicago VII.

According to Billboard chart statistics, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, in terms of both albums and singles. If that fact's surprising, it's because Chicago has been singularly underrated since the beginning of their long career, both because of their musical ambitions (to the musicians, rock is only one of several styles of music to be used and blended, along with classical, jazz, R&B, and pop) and because of their refusal to emphasize celebrity over the music. By those standards, Chicago has succeeded in the ways they intended to. From the beginning of their emergence as a national act, they've been able to fill arenas with satisfied fans. And beyond the impressive sales and chart statistics, their music has endured, played constantly on the radio and instantly familiar to tens of millions.
