I don't know why this news makes me so happy - clearly it has to be a sum of many parts.

Rhino Handmade raids the vault again to release Chicago's chart-topping debut, CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY in true, discrete Quadraphonic sound for the first time ever! Mastered from early 1970s Quad mixes, the DVD offers unheralded takes on the band's unique fusion of rock and jazz.
CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY rose to the top of the charts in 1969, with 12 unforgettable tracks including the hit singles "Beginnings," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and "Questions 67 and 68." The now-classic release also contains a cover of Steve Winwood's "I'm A Man," "Prologue, August 29, 1968" (recorded at the Democratic convention) and an almost 15-minute live take on "Liberation."
I've got a couple of theme shows in the works. Unfortunately, this show was put together a bit quickly, as I spent most of the weekend helping a friend move down from San Francisco. NonDescript, Tuesdays, 9am-10am PST (12pm-1pm EST) KCSB-FM 91.
