    All right, maybe Chicago had more "fire in the belly" 20 years ago (or 40!). Fair argument. Altogether, that's another subject. But, technically, this is the best-sounding live Chicago product to date encompassing all the necessary hit classics from one of America's great bands. The PBS "Soundstage" video probably compares favorably. But this one is 94 minutes in length with bonus material, which includes an interview with founding bandmembers as well as the current bandmates.

    Don't hesitate to purchase 'Chicago In Chicago.' HDNet aired this performance late last year. The blu-ray release brings an expected top-notch sound -- uncompressed PCM stereo or else 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. The mix is excellent and vocals are spot on. Even for the most dedicated Chicago fan, there is the occasional musical nuance brought out here that may get lost in a live-concert setting.

    Overall, while the setlist could be better, it's as good as you'll get given the band's long run and surplus of hit songs... starting with the entire "Ballet" (For a Girl in Buchannon), which of course opens with the band's first No. 1 single "Make Me Smile." And, while saxaphonist Walt Parazaider still is a familiar face in the signature horn section, on this particular night Mr. Ray Hermann brings a lot to the table. He has his own style, but he fits in perfectly, never missing an attack or release.

    Would have given this a "5-star" rating" had it included something more obscure from the Chicago catalog... be it a medley of early material or a single rarely-performed tune as a bonus track. Next time, maybe.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Chicago Rules!! April 4, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray
    In response to Ego, who gave it a one star, despite not seeing the video, and obviously has an ego problem, I have seen this video on Directv. This is a concert that was made im Chicago in 2010 and yes, with the Doobie Brothers. If anyone knows anything about Chicago summer concerts, they tour with another famous band and at the beginning and/or end, both groups go on stage together and belt out a few songs as an encore. This video is just the Chicago portion of the concert and the Chicago songs performed with the Doobies for the encore.
    Four of the original band members have been together for 45 years and they have numerous hits, so why would they have a concert with all new music? New music to any band over the age of 25 does not sell anymore. This concert showcased the talents of the two newest members, Lou Pardini and Drew Hester. Bill Champlin is missed, but the band has survived the losses of Terry Kath and Peter Cetera and has continued to thrive. The highlight of the video is the duel drum solo. The low point of the video is the fact that they only play about one-third of my favorite song, Feelin' Stronger Every Day, which they did that year to fit in most of their songs.
    This would be a five star review but the encore with the Doobies was nothing compared to the concert with Earth Wind and Fire. I guess that is why the whole concert is not shown.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Show by Chicago May 30, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray
    I am glad I saw this high-def concert video on HDNet last December (and currently showing regularly on DishTV's channel 102). Robert Lamm still sounds great when he is singing his classic songs, "Saturday in the Park", "Does Anybody Know What Time It is" and "Beginnings." And the trombone/trumpet "duel" in "Beginnings" between Jimmy Pankow and Lee Loughnane still blows me away every time. And the finale of "25 or 6 to 4" is enhanced with the enthusiastic participation of the entire Doobie Brothers band. Of course, Peter Cetera and Terry Kath are always missed -- but it has been 27 and 34 years respectively since they were in Chicago! The great songs are still there. A video cannot replicate the excitement of being at the show itself, but this is still worthwhile. After all these years, Chicago still enjoys themselves on stage and you can see it in this show. My only criticisms of this product are 1) Having an audience member attempt to sing "If You Leave Me Now" as part of a noble charitable cause; and 2) The absence of founding member Walter Parazaider on saxophone at this show. Walt's substitute does a fine job, and I am okay with him taking some time off, but if Chicago is putting out a DVD/Blu-Ray, then why not make sure that it is a show where the four remaining founding members are there? However, before I buy this product, I would want to know that there is something more than what I already saw on TV and have since saved on my DVR. If you are a fan and haven't seen this show, I recommend its purchase!

    5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars for this long concert June 15, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    This long concert has a heavy emphasis on musical instruments. It almost feels like one long jam session with all the instruments going. The music warms up slowly, but it gets better as you dig deeper into this hour and a half concert. I wanted to hear a few more vocals, but this stands fine on its own merits as an open air Summer concert for Chicago fans.

    Here is the set list. (1:29.24)

    1. Opening/Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon
    2. Make Me Smile
    3. So Much to Say, So Much to Give
    4. Anxiety's Moment
    5. West Virginia's Fantasies
    6. Colour my World
    7. To Be Free
    8. Now More Than Ever
    9. Dialogue
    10. If You Leave Me Now (A fan sings for donating to charity.)
    11. Call on Me
    12. Old Days
    13. Hard Habit to Break
    14. You're the Inspiration
    15. Beginnings
    16. I'm a Man
    17. Just You 'N' Me
    18. Saturday in the Park
    19. Hard to Say I'm Sorry
    20. Get Away
    21. Feelin' Stronger Every Day

    The Doobie Brothers join in the last following three songs.

    22. Free
    23. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
    24. 25 or 6 to 4

    In this concert, the band members are the following:

    Robert Lamm
    James Pankow
    Lee Loughnane
    Jason Scheff
    Ray Hermann
    Keith Howland
    Drew Hester
    Tris Imboden
    Lou Pardini

    The two audio options are DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and PCM Stereo.

    This concert was filmed at Charter One Pavilion, in Chicago, on July 10, 2010.

    ~~~

    Bonus discussion (40:54): At about 41 minutes, the bonus is a discussion between three of the founders of Chicago. They are Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, and Robert Lamm.
