5.0 out of 5 stars Great Chicago album from the Terry Kath era July 31 2014
Format:Audio CD
If you like Chicago first era, you will love this album. Twenty one songs on 2 CDs! A pure delight! The album sounds great... for a live album recorded in 1972. A must-have for fans of Terry Kath and Peter Cetera. If you're looking for a Chicago greatest hits album, stop searching and buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recording of early (the best) era of Chicago March 19 2014
By Jeb
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great for fans of the Chicago that was a cool jazz based rock band, before they went to sap. My only complaint about this release is the type font used on the cover and insert. My guess is that the people buying this CD aren't young, as they either wouldn't care, or would download the album. So why use microscopic cursive font on the cover that is almost unreadable, even with reading glasses? Otherwise, a worthwhile purchase for any fans of Chicago's first 6 or 7 albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Chicago live album Feb. 4 2000
By J. P. Walsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It doesn't get any better than this recording if you are a Chicago fan. The original lineup including Kath, Cetera, and Seraphine are all here, and the quality of the recording is superb. The material is mostly from Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago II, and Chicago V, and the band was in fine form throughout. If you are debating between buying this or the Carnegie Hall live album, by all means choose Live In Japan. The horns sound full and deep compared with the kazoo like sound of the Carnegie Hall recording. I think the last two songs on the CD, "I'm A Man" and "Free", showcase Chicago at their best. If you became a fan of Chicago in the 1980's because you liked the ballads, avoid this CD because the band sounds nothing like the David Foster era Chicago. This CD is flat-out jazz-rock from start to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Live Chicago Album Jan. 8 2002
By R. Angeloni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For a group that's been around as long as Chicago (35 years and counting), there are not too many authorized live CDs available. There is, of course, the Carnegie Hall album, which I happen to like (despite the fact that many have panned it), and the numerous bootleg albums, which is taken from Chicago's performance at the Toronto Rock Festival. Then there's Chicago 26, which features their latest lineup.
Live in Japan, however, featues the original lineup (Kath, Cetera, Seraphine), and they sound great. The sound is much superior to the Carnegie Hall CD, and there is even a Japanese version of Question 67 & 68. If you like early Chicago, or if you like good rock and roll with great horns, then you'll love this CD. This proves that the original Chicago could rock with the best of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars By FAR their best live album Sept. 26 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When this first hit the States in 1978, I thought it was a "new" recording. Then I discovered it dated back to 1972, when Chicago was touring to promote the CHICAGO V album. What a revelation! Clocking it at just over 100 minutes, this is to date the ONLY album to really capture the power & excitement of a Chicago Live concert. It's been my favorite for a long time. Partly for having the best sound quality, partly for the best choice of songs, and partly for the "oddities": "Lowdown" and "Questions 67 And 68" sung in Japanese, and the early debut of Terry Kath's "Mississippi Delta City Blues", which in the USA had appeared on the CHICAGO XI album only 5 months before this finally got here. Overlooked for years because it was an import, it's a terrific bargain, the CD selling for just about what the original LP did over 20 years ago.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality reissue, shame on Rhino March 23 2014
By Sandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This review is for the 2014 Rhino reissue of this classic Chicago release.

Musically, this is probably the best live recording of Chicago with Terry Kath and in their musical peak. The playing is a bit loose in places but the performances and sound are better than the Carnegie Hall album, for sure. I have the very good 1996 Chicago Records release of this album and was looking forward to this new Rhino release with hopefully a new & improved mastering.

But Rhino sure screwed this one up. This release has been heavily dynamically compressed and cranked up. It's harsh and louder than previous masterings. As others have mentioned, the packaging is terrible. Cheap cardboard sleeves and low grade reproduction liner notes, with microscopic, impossible to read script. One would think that Rhino and other labels would understand that a title like this is going to appeal more to an older listening audience that appreciates a fine mastering and quality packaging content. Instead, they cheapened this out as much as possible, except they deemed it necessary to pay someone to crank up the compression & level sliders. Stupid, misguided effort on their part.

I give 4 stars for the musical performance, but overall only 2 stars for this release due to the mastering and packaging issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Live Recording From One of the Monster Bands of the 70s Sept. 3 2002
By J. Conrad Guest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Recorded during a tour of Japan in support of their fifth album, this double CD live recording contains most of the essentials from Chicago's first five albums.

The set opens with material mostly from Chicago V, including Dialogue, Parts I and II, a Hit By Varese, Saturday in the Park, and State of the Union, with guitarist Terry Kath sounding phenomenal on the latter. The band's first album, Chicago Transit Authority, is well represented, with strong renditions of Questions 67 and 68 (sung in Japanese), Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is and Beginnings, while Ballet For a Girl In Buchanan (the seven-song suite featuring Color My World and bracketed at the start and finish by the hit single Make Me Smile), from Chicago II, never sounded so good. A 10-minute version of 25 or 6 to 4 features another stellar Kath solo, and the CD's finale showcases Peter Cetera on bass and Danny Seraphine on drums on a medley of I'm a Man and Free.

The sound quality is rather poor in comparison to the Carnegie Hall album, but the band is tighter and sounds more confident. All in all, a great trip back to the 70s when this band, with its original lineup, knew how to rock and roll.
