Rhino repackaged and re-released five of Chicago's LPs on Columbia -- Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago II, Chicago V, Chicago VI, and Chicago VII -- as a slipcased box set. It's not a bad way to acquire the albums if you don't already own them, but isn't recommended for the casual fan. ~ Al Campbell
