Annotation

Chicago Transit Authority changed their name to simply, Chicago, after being threatened with legal action after the release of their first album.


The first name used by this band was Chicago Transit Authority but shortened it after threatened legal action by the actual Chicago Transit Authority after the release of their first album in 1969. Please do not add the first album here.


Live in Toronto, an unauthorised release, is listed under The Chicago Transit Authority.

Wikipedia

Chicago is an American rock band formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. The self-described "rock and roll band with horns" began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads. The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Second only to The Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands, Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups in history.

According to Billboard, Chicago was the leading US singles charting group during the 1970s. They have sold over 38 million units in the US, with 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Over the course of their career they have had five number-one albums and 21 top-ten singles.
