CHICAGO PUSHES SISYPHUS OVER THE TOP
"Lost" Chicago Studio Album Finally To See Release
June 17 From Rhino Records
LOS ANGELES -- In his book, The Greatest Music Never Sold, author Dan
Leroy writes about the Stone Of Sisyphus, the great lost Chicago album.
Recorded in 1993 and produced by Peter Wolf, Sisyphus became a cult record
immediately after Warner Bros. refused to release it because it wasn't the
Chicago record that was expected. Knowing what they had created and not
willing to compromise, the band left Warner Bros. and took the album with
Now, 15 years later, on June 17, this 11-song album with four bonus tracks
will finally be available from Rhino Records at all physical and digital
Powered by Chicago's celebrated horn section, the tracks on SISYPHUS have
bite, power and swing, and the "fire in the belly" that one associates
usually with debut albums. The songs touch on a wide range of styles and
moods, including the energetic horn-driven title track, "Stone Of
Sisyphus," the cool funk groove of "Mah-Jong," the anti-corporate rock
broadside "Plaid," the touching emotional lyrics of "The Pull" and Robert
Lamm's rap on "Sleeping In The Middle Of The Bed." "Bigger Than Elvis"
features contributions from musicians who worked with "The King" himself,
including The Jordinaires and Jerry Scheff (father of Chicago bassist Jason
"We wrote songs that were more experimental, songs that were more daring in
terms of musical direction and chord construction, more than anything,"
remembers James Pankow, whose innovative horn charts had been an integral
part of Chicago's distinctive sound from the start. "We got into really
feeling our oats in terms of being the voice of Chicago again. It had been
a long time since we had made a record like that."
Looking back, the band members wish they had found a way to release
SISYPHUS sooner, but there is intense pride in having stood up for their
creative integrity -- a Chicago trademark. While Sisyphus became an
underground classic, widely bootlegged by fans, Chicago continued to defy
music business conventions by forming their own record company, and
recording hugely successful big band and holiday records before it was the
To date, Chicago's remarkable achievements include a Grammy" Award, record
sales that exceed 100,000,000, including 21 Top 10 singles, five
consecutive 1 albums, five 1 singles, 13 platinum albums and five gold
singles. An incredible 25 of their 30 albums have been certified platinum,
and Chicago is the first American band to chart Top 40 albums in five

In 40 years, Chicago has done it all -- five consecutive #1 albums, 13 platinum albums, 21 Top 10 singles, a Grammy and a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Five years after it began restoring the band's extensive catalogue, Rhino Records salutes one of America's best-selling and longest-running bands with a newly compiled, two-CD set that encompasses the group's entire recording history.
The Best of Chicago: 40th Anniversary Edition will be available for a limited time from Rhino Records at all regular retail outlets October 2 for a suggested list price of $18.98 and at digital outlets for a suggested retail price of $ 11.99.
Spanning Chicago's entire career -- from its 1969 debut Chicago Transit Authority, to 2006's Chicago XXX -- the 30-song, double-disc anthology contains 30 Top 40 radio tracks including a trio of #1 smashes: "Look Away," "Hard To Say I'm Sorry," and the Grammy-winning "If You Leave Me Now." Sequenced chronologically, the first disc features "Make Me Smile," the band's first Top 10 hit, along with "Does Any One Really Know What Time It Is?" and "Beginnings" from the band's debut, "Colour My World" from Chicago II, "Saturday In The Park," from Chicago V and the group's signature "25 Or 6 To 4."
The second disc continues the hit parade with the epic rock ballad "Love Me Tomorrow," plus "You're The Inspiration" and "Hard Habit To Break" from the back-to-back hit albums Chicago 16 (1982) and Chicago 17 (1984) before concluding with the 2006 hit, "Love Will Come Back."
The album's cover art and internal graphics were selected through a fan contest with long-time fan Mark Rosenmeier cover chosen from over 400 entries. Inside, 10 of the runner-up designs are included, which is testament to the power and talent of Chicago's fans.
Music journalist Bill DeYoung penned the liner notes, based on new interviews with the band.
To further celebrate this impressive achievement, Rhino will release a reissue of Heart of Chicago in MVI on November 20....
And a Scrapbook 1967-1977 DVD on January 29, 2008, which features footage of the band's first ten years, including a live show in Japan in 1972, a Dick Clark Special that has long been requested by fans, new interviews with the four original members, and never-before-seen home video from Robert Lamm.
As the first band to play with The University of Notre Dame marching band,
an exclusive DVD, The Greatest Halftime Show, will be available of that performance in September 2008.
A Rhino Handmade 7" singles boxed set of the band's hits is also in the works for 2008.
In February 2007, Chicago became a member of an exclusive and exceptionally talented club of artists when the National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) bestowed them with the Chairman's Award for Sustained Creative Achievement during the organization's 49th Annual Convention in Chicago.
Formed in their namesake city in 1967, Chicago's music mixed rock, pop, and jazz in a completely new way, Propelled by innovative horn arrangements, the band's commercial potential was soon apparent; when in 1970 the band hit the charts with its first of 21 Top 10 singles. The group would go on to score five consecutive #1 albums starting in 1972 with Chicago V, and concluding with Chicago IX -- Chicago's Greatest Hits. In a career both influential and extensive, Chicago has sold more than 100 million records and continues to tour every year to SRO audiences.
