Editorial Reviews

Known for producing some of the best loved songs in rock history including "Hard Habit to Break," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?," and the ever-popular "Saturday in the Park," Chicago has remained a musical force releasing 33 albums and touring on a continual basis. Formed in 1967 in Chicago, the five musicians had a dream to integrate all the musical diversity of their city and weave a new sound—a rock 'n' roll band with a horn section. This amazing performance features some of Chicago's best known songs including "Color My World," " Feeling Stronger Everyday," "25 or 6 to 4" and more.

Song List: Make Me Smile, Color My World, Now More Than Ever, If You Leave Me Now, Dialogue, Hard Habit to Break, Saturday in the Park, Beginnings, Just You ‘N’ Me, Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?, Feelin’ Stronger Every Day, I’m a Man, Hard to Say I’m Sorry/Get Away, Free, 25 or 6 to 4

"Chicago: Live in Concert" is an excellent concert.

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.

The concert beings with Ballad for a Girl in Buchanan Suite (probably more popularly known as Make Me Smile, Color My World and a few other songs). First thing I noticed is that Bill Champlin is no Terry Kath when it comes to vocals (and his guitar is missed as well). To me there was a definite mismatch. Throughout the performance, the band is tight, looks like they are having fun, and they play a lot of the old songs (back from the 70's) that made them so popular. Those songs bring back good memories and the music is performed well, if maybe a bit too slick. I miss Terry Kath - both his blistering guitar and the gritty vocals. He added so much character to the original group - you just can't replace him. I also miss Danny Seraphine on the drums. The original brass section is still there and sounding good - I would say even better than they did in their earlier concert albums (like the Carnegie Hall concert, that always seemed kind of sloppy to me).

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.

Patrick Naugle, DVD Verdict --In 2003 Chicago recorded a live concert as part of WTTW's Soundstage series on PBS. The show is a nice tribute to the band's staying power with songs that, while never quite cutting edge (time has dulled their original groundbreaking jazz fusion), are still a lot of fun to hear live on stage. The band dips into their back catalog quite often and pulls out a lot of gems ("25 or 6 to 4" is a personal favorite). They do a fine job of counterbalancing old standards with '80s hits (three cheers for "If You Leave Me Now") while sprinkling in a few of their newer songs for good measure.

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.

I've been an avid Chicago fan since I was 10 years old. At that time, I received a copy of the Chicago Transit Authority (1970). The DVD was for a Chicago concert in Chicago. That right there was almost an oxymoron. They never play in Chicago even though that is their roots. This concert was so well put together. The band plays are their oldies. Never a dull moment in this show as they keep the pace of the show moving. The Concert is a Sound Stage Concert which made it more special. I have a Blue Ray Player so I purchased the Blue Ray version of the DVD. With an LED TV it makes a huge difference. I actually felt like I was in the audience. I had goose bumps the first time I watched. If your a Chicago fan, even if you've seen them live, you need to own this DVD. You won't regret it and I'm willing to bet you'll watch it several times. Enjoy!
