5.0 out of 5 stars Mainly here to correct a mistake by someone else. April 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Terry Kath NEVER overdubbed/adapted his guitar tracks. He was better than Hendrix, and this album is one of the three showcases of this (the other two are CTA and Live At Carnegie Hall vol, I, II, III, & IV).

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Album Overall! Oct. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
I grew up a huge Chicago fan, and bought everything they put out until Terry Kath died. Over the years I find myself listening to this album a lot. It's not one of their critically acclaimed albums, but there are some really great songs on this album. Brand New Love Affair-Pt1 is a great Jazz song featuring Terry Kath's soulful vocals. "Anyway You Want," the first cut on the album, gets things rolling in an upbeat style. Terry Kath has a great, but short, guitar solo on this song. Other great songs are the Jazzy, "Long Time No See," and the blues influenced "Ain't It Blue." Kath's guitar work on "Ain't It Blue" is awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best Aug. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was a dissapointment. No long instrumental tracks or great arrangements like VII. There are some good moments when compared to albums after X but they were definitely headed in a different direction. The best part of the original album was the COOL "iron0on" that was included with the album. Too bad they can't re-issue that. I always wanted one on a levi jacket.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Chicago and a true '70's classic April 19 2003
By Rik22
Format:Audio CD
When this disc was released in 1975, Chicago was at the peak of their popularity. After coming off of the success of the two-disc Chicago VII in which the band which explored true jazz styles while pulling off three great hit singles (Wishing You Were Here, Call On Me & Searchin' So Long) Chicago was criticized for returning to a one-disc format and settling into a pop-rock style. The group released Chicago IX-Greatest Hits later in 1975 which was a huge hit and, in 1976, Chicago X was released which included the meg-hit "If You Leave Me Now".
Thus, this CD is sometimes forgotten in this legendary band's immense catalogue, but it shouldn't be. Although I bought Chicago VIII On vinyl as a kid in 1975, I still pull this disc out often as it is really quite good.
"Old Days" may be Chicago's defining pop radio hit in the 1970's (I know, there are many, so don't shoot me!!) and still sounds great and innovative when it comes on the radio today. The blend of of Tery Kath's distortion power chords kicking open the tune, with the song's incredibly infectious melody, and Peter Cetera's soaring tenor just breezed through everyone's radio in the summer of 1975, at a time when long-since-forgotten bubble gum pop ruled the air. Chicago's "secret weapon", however, separated this tune from everything else that was popular on the radio: drummer Danny Seraphine. Unlike guitarist Terry Kath, who never received proper music industry recognition as a true stylist and innovator on his instrument, Danny has gone down in history as one of rock's all-time great drummers. He appraoched "Old Days" with "no holds barred" and just rips through this song with his incomparable stylistic drum fills.
Danny does some amazing work on the rest of VIII as does the rest of the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great reissue Feb. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Chicago have many albums that are underrated by even their own fanbase (as well as several that are deservedly maligned), but this one has to be their most underrated release of all. Until this Rhino reissue it has suffered from the worst sound quality of any of their albums, but that can only partially account for its reputation.
For me this is the first great single disc the band released. V was a near miss, and VI had some great moments, but this album proved that they didn't need two whole discs to stretch out on to create a masterpiece. "Harry Truman" was a questionable choice for first single, but Robert Lamm's other contributions are very strong, especially the neglected gem "Long Time No See". Terry Kath contributes two very different compositions, the 2 minute ballad "Till We Meet Again" and the 7 minute Hendrix-inspired rocker "Oh Thank You Great Spirit", surely the albums centrepiece, despite the absence of the horn section.
James Pankow's efforts, the chart entries "Brand New Love Affair" and "Old Days" are also superb, the latter one of the last uptempo songs to be a true hit for the band. And generic or not, it's nice to hear Peter Cetera rock out on "Hideaway".
This is definitely high up on my Chicago top ten. And unlike on their reissues of CTA, II, or III Rhino have improved the sound so much that this edition should be the only one you should seriously consider buying. The bonus tracks are a nice addition too.
