Limited numbered edition hybrid SACD mastered from the original master tapes. The Mofi version lavishes Chicago VI with a clarity, transparency, and detail no previous digital edition has ever enjoyed. As the first album to be recorded at producer/manager James William Guercio's custom-built Caribou Studios, the 1973 set features remarkable harmonic extension, terrific separation, and finely sculpted images. All of these facets and more are improved and further brought into balance on this SACD, which throws the septet's phenomenal interplay and skyscraping vocals into unopposed relief on wide, extra-deep soundstages. Chicago VI can be viewed as a perfect summation of the band's many strengths. While the extended arrangements are slimmed down, there's no shortage of horn-stoked rock momentum or head-turning jazz/pop fusion.

No worries here - this sounds phenomenal - Enjoy.
If it would have offered a 4.0 or 5.1 track in addition to the 2.0 provided, it would have gotten the 5th star. This recording was released in Quad back in the day, so a 4.0 track would have been nice.
I'll leave the music commentary to the music critics (plenty of excellent commentary under the regular CD edition). I will note though that this disc does not contain the two bonus tracks contained on the expanded regular CD version. Oddly enough however, the "auto-rip" that you receive with this sacd is the set of all 12 tracks from the expanded CD.
Audio Quality 5
Given the band's propensity for very long double albums comprising a mix of long experimental tracks interspersed with more radio-friendly hits we get relatively very little experimenting here but just straightforward tracks which for this fan comes as a pleasant respite. As they say, sometimes less is better than more and it is surely the case with this album. While this is probably not Chicago's best album and is certainly not my personal favourite it still is a strong release.
