Rhino Handmade prepares Chicago “Live in ’75” release

When I spent some time recently reminiscing about some great live Chicago video from the '70s, I had no idea that my words might make it to the music gods with power to release cool stuff. Actually, it's probably completely unrelated, but I'm very, very stoked about the latest announcement from Rhino Handmade about Chicago's Live in '75, which will be released by Rhino Handmade on May 24th.

Read onward for the juicy details and get stoked!

Here's the official press release:


Rhino Handmade’s Two-Disc Set Captures Dynamic Previously Unreleased
Performances Recorded Live At The Capital Centre In Maryland

Pre-order Exclusively At On April 11, Ships May 24

LOS ANGELES – After releasing its eighth consecutive gold album in
just six years, Chicago embarked upon a massive stadium tour in 1975
that’s considered to be one of its finest. The shows found the group
at the pinnacle of its prowess, combining the jaw-dropping musicality
and contagious onstage energy that made Chicago one of the most
successful acts in American pop history.

Rhino Handmade provides a snapshot from this extraordinary tour for
the ages with a two-disc set that contains two hours of previously
unreleased performances recorded June 24-26 at the Capital Centre in
Largo, Maryland. The collection is presented in a hardbound slipcase
accompanied by a foldout poster that features rare photos from the
tour, LIVE IN ’75 is available April 11th for pre-order exclusively at for $39.98 and will be shipping on May 24.

LIVE IN ’75 includes selections from all of the group’s albums through
its then-current Chicago VIII. The set flows like a greatest hits
collection that spans nearly every smash – from Robert Lamm’s smooth
baritone on “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” to the Lee
Loughnane-penned hit “Call On Me” – but leaves room for beloved album
tracks like the latin-flavored “Mongonucleosis.” The set also includes
a complete performance of the crowd-pleasing “Ballet For A Girl In
Buchannon” suite that James Pankow composed for the Chicago II album.

The band came out rocking, opening with “Introduction” from the
ensemble’s stunning 1969 debut Chicago Transit Authority before
shifting to “Anyway You Want” from its most recent LP. The combination
neatly distilled Chicago’s past and present into a powerful one-two
punch that established an intensity that did not let up through the
entire show.

LIVE IN ’75 includes Chicago’s distinctive take on a pair of cover
tunes. The first, “I’m A Man,” finds the band making The Spencer Davis
Group classic their own, led by a rousing guitar performance from
Terry Kath. The second, the Beatles’ “Got To Get You Into My Life,”
was significant because it was the song that originally seeded Walter
Parazaider’s imagination with the notion of a new kind of rock ’n’
roll band with horns.

    Interesting choice of venue for a live record. I know it’ll be from the soundboard, but I went to some shows at Cap Centre back in the day and I recall the acoustics being pretty muddy, even by arena standards

  • Matt

    I’m sure it will be ace and there’s some speculation (from the good folks at The Second Disc) that since this is from the Beachago tour with the Beach Boys, perhaps they might be on some of the tracks….and I hope that’s the case.
