Few debut albums can boast as consistently solid an effort as the self-titled Chicago Transit Authority (1969). Even fewer can claim to have enough material to fill out a double-disc affair. Although this long- player was ultimately the septet's first national exposure, the group was far from the proverbial "overnight sensation." Under the guise of the Big Thing, the group soon to be known as CTA had been honing its eclectic blend of jazz, classical, and straight-ahead rock & roll in and around the Windy City for several years…

It might come as a surprise to anyone familiar only with their satin-smooth soft-rock hits, but when Chicago first formed in 1967, they were actually doing something new, cool, and interesting: rock & roll with a fully-integrated jazz hornsection. 1969's CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY has two of the group's early hits, "Beginnings" and "Does Anybody Really KnowWhat Time It Is?" but it also includes some of their most audacious material ever, notably Terry Kath's seven-minute "Free-Form Guitar", a free jazz improvisation for heavily distorted electric guitar that–no kidding–would not sound out of place on an early Sonic Youth album, and the politically-charged, side-long suite comprised of "Prologue", "Someday (August 28, 1968)", and "Liberation", the closest Chicago ever came to a true jazz-rock synthesis. Chicago's later work deserves many of the critical brickbats it's received, but CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY is a genuinely interesting album.

Drummer Danny Seraphine was a founding member of Chicago and performed with the group for over 20 years. He is the central figure in CTA, the initials standing for California Transit Authority, a reference to Chicago, which was called Chicago Transit Authority in its early days, also sometimes abbreviated as CTA. The appellation is appropriate, since Seraphine's CTA is, in effect, a tribute band to the earliest period of Chicago's music. This album, Seraphine writes in a sleeve note…
