Chicago went home to its namesake city in 2017 to record a live version of the band's multi-platinum second album, Chicago II. Recorded at the historic WTTW-TV studios, Chicago II: Live On Soundstage underscores the enduring popularity of Chicago's second album with an energized performance of the entire double-LP in front of a live audience, including several songs that haven't been played live since the 1970s. Originally released in January 1970 as Chicago (and later dubbed Chicago II ), the album was a major breakthrough for the band and features some of the group's biggest hits, including the Top 10 singles: "25 Or 6 To 4," "Make Me Smile" and "Colour My World." Nominated for three Grammy awards and certified double-platinum, the album is also known for several extended song cycles: "Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon" by trombonist/composer James Pankow; "Memories Of Love" by guitarist Terry Kath and composer Peter Matz; and "It Better End Soon" by keyboardist/vocalist/composer Robert Lamm.
