The year was 1981. Believing the Chicago was to no longer be commercially viable, Columbia Records dropped them from its roster and released a second “Greatest Hits” volume later that year to fulfill its contractual obligation.
Luckily after getting the help of from david foster and three members of toto, chicago made their album Chicago 16.
After this album 70′s Chicago became 80′s Chicago.
In particular, they made their first of many “smooth?” hit.

If so, my posting of the video below will make some sense. Either way, enjoy it while it is still up.
