Chicago - Voice Your Choice

They started out as The Big Thing, but when they moved to Los Angeles, California in 1969, they changed their name to Chicago Transit Authority. Later that year, they paired it down to Chicago. Their sound was jazz-oriented rock with a full horn section. And boy they had many hit albums and 45s!

Between 1969 and 1997 they appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart a total of 50 times and scored an astounding 19 Top Ten hits, 4 Gold and 1 Platinum record.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies Voice Your Choice features Chicago. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Make Me Smile or Colour My World. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
