Chicago IX: Chicago's Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album, and ninth album overall, by the American band Chicago and was released in 1975, in both stereo and SQ quadraphonic versions.
Considering all of Chicago's biggest hits thus far, this set stretches all the way back to their 1969 debut, The Chicago Transit Authority, to 1974's Chicago VII. Chicago VIII and its hits, having only come out just months earlier, were considered too recent to anthologize, while Chicago III's material was overlooked for inclusion because of its lack of truly big hit singles.
Released in November 1975 on Columbia Records, Chicago IX proved to be an enormous seller. It reached #1 in the US during a chart stay of 72 weeks. Even though 2002's The Very Best of: Only the Beginning superseded it, Chicago IX was also reissued by Rhino Records, Chicago's current distributor. The album did not chart in the UK.
Chicago is an American rock band formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. The band began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, becoming famous for producing a number of hit ballads. They had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Second only to the Beach Boys in terms of singles and albums, Chicago is one of the longest running and most successful U.S. pop/rock and roll groups.
According to Billboard, Chicago was the leading U.S. singles charting group during the 1970s. They have sold over 120 million albums worldwide, scoring 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Over the course of their career they have charted five No. 1 albums, and have had 21 top ten hits.
