Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Chicago - Greatest Hits 1982-1989 (1989)

All these songs have already appeared on the blog on another compilation, Only The Beginning: The Very Best Of Chicago, even though this CD was purchased before that one. (Note: don't confuse the two previously mentioned albums with the other 10+ compilations from this group.)  But since the goal of the blog is to listen to all the CDs on the shelves, this one is getting a Saturday morning spin.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #37

Missing Top 40 hit: You're Not Alone (#10, 1989).  Would I have preferred chronological sequencing? You betcha.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD:  This CD (and the track What Kind Of Man Would I Be in particular) reminds me of numerous trips to Sutherlands during ill-fated DIY home improvement projects.

  1. Eighties era Chicago soundtracking trips to Sutherlands????
    Sounds like a missed marketing opportunity. Maybe HGTV or DIY networks will pick up on it.
