Info for Chicago XI

Chicago XI was the final studio effort to feature the original septet, who by this time had been performing and recording for nearly a decade. In late January 1978, founding member Terry Kath accidentally and fatally shot himself, forever altering the band's sound and indeed much of the combo's tenacious rock & roll heart.

It is somewhat fitting that their ninth studio release (11th overall) contains two Kath compositions as well as a pair of additional lead vocals. The funky, up-tempo 'Mississippi Delta Blues' opens the album with a showcase of his writing and performance skills. The more aggressive 'Takin' It On Uptown' is a gritty rocker that further demonstrates Kath's unparalleled fret board prowess. These tougher tracks are counterbalanced by another round of light pop balladry from the usual suspects of Peter Cetera (bass/vocals), whose 'Baby, What a Big Surprise' was the perfect Top Ten follow-up to his chart-topping and two-time Grammy-winning 'If You Leave Me Now' from Chicago X (1976).
