    An album this old has no right to sound this good. So clear, instruments are rendered out in space perfectly; vocals are sublime; drums snappy but controlled; horns are, well, Chicago horns all heard loud and proud; bass is there. Hiss? What's that?

    I'm really sorry if this has been asked and answered before (I don't have time to go through 35 pages) but is this likely to be issued on vinyl and if so have any dates been announced?

    Finally purchased from Amazon last week for $11.79 and played twice this week. yeah more punch and less "muck" on this album. "Make Me Smile" jumps out as a big improvement-Kath's vocals, the horns, Seraphine's drums, Cetera's bass etc....
  8. I am waiting for the vinyl release of this. I saw a big full-page advertising on this Steve Wilson Remix on Chicago II in either Stereophile or Absolute Sound magazine.

    The "A-Ha" moment for me was hearing the clarity of the shaker and tambourine in Make Me Smile.

    But those have always had clarity...the only things on the track that did.

    I would love to see what Wilson could do with "Chicago V"-

    "A Hit By Varese" and "Dialogue" among others are begging for improved sonics!

    What's wrong with them? They always sounded great to me.

    I agree...sure, a better mix could bring out improvements but I always thought V was one their better sounding albums from that pre-mid seventies period.

    Just picked this disc up preowned at FYE and it definitely sounds great!
