Please note that this blu-ray is a re-release of "Soundstage Presents Chicago-Live in Concert" which was recorded June 2003, in the city of Chicago. The show is part of a series of live concerts by Soundstage, a TV show, produced by Chicago's public television WTTW and HD Ready.
Instruments have a full and rich sound and the vocals are great. Horns, a hallmark of Chicago, are exceptional. The flute and keyboards, among other instruments, are notable. There is also a drum solo.
Audio choices are DTS-MA 5.1 Surround and LPCM Stereo. Audio was great on LPCM Stereo which I listened through the speakers on my hi-def TV.
The concert contains 15 songs and is about 1 hour and 21 minutes. I enjoyed most of the songs and it flew by pretty fast for me.

Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Walt Parazaider, Bill Champlin, Jason Scheff, Tris Imbodden, and Keith Howland are the band, Chicago, in this blu-ray.
Overall, I am glad I got this Blu Ray. Even though it is only part of the original Chicago, the earlier songs have endured and for the most part are performed well. The video and audio quality are good, too.
This concert is a great addition to any Chicago fan's collection. One of the things that I like about Chicago--heck, one of the things I like about a lot of bands--is that they don't have a flashy stage show; this means the band rises or falls by the quality of the music (you know, the reason I even go to concerts to begin with). Chicago's lineup includes Robert Lamm, Walt Parazaider, James Pankow, Lee Loughnane, Bill Champlin, Jason Scheff, Tris Imboden and Keith Howland, and all of the musicians play their parts well. As a fan of the '80s incarnation, I have to admit to being slightly disappointed that Peter Cetera isn't around anymore (he left in the mid 1980s); his unique vocals are truly missed on some of his original songs.
Yet Cetera's absence is just a quibble. I really enjoyed spending an hour and a half with Chicago and taking in their music. I had a flood of memories come back to while listening to this disc--including junior high dances where I never got to dance with a girl (aaaaaand now I'm sad again). Chicago: Live in Concert is a nice overview of the band's hits and deep cuts, making this trip to the Windy City worthwhile.Read more ›
