Back when Chicago was a smoldering rock unit with a sharp brass section and a boss song selection, the boys recorded this choice concert souvenir, released in the band's mid-80s soft rock ascendancy. Extended and powerful versions of five full-on FM classics make Toronto Rock 'n' Roll Revival 69 an excellent purchase, and the budget price makes it a complete score. Like many other big-league legends (Scorpions, Roxy Music), Chicago was a completely different entity in the beginning. Toronto Rock 'n' Roll Revival 69 captures the group in its live prime. Supporting the Chicago Transit Authority debut, before mastering wedding material, Chicago was a rock & roll force to be reckoned with.
