Very very nice.  I think you did a great job in retaining the original spirit of the songs.  Thanks for doing this.

First a disclaimer:  No, I am not related to anyone in the band or part of their marketing team.  I'm just an enthusiastic Chicago fan like the rest of you in this community.   But as I pondered graduation gifts for a number of high school seniors I'm honoring this month, I thought that in addition to the appreciated Ben Franklin I typically give, that I'd also include a copy of the Nashville Sessions CD so that I send these bright young people out into the world knowing what great music really is.  BTW  I searched "Ultimate Graduation Playlists" on the web and didn't find any that included a Chicago song.  No "Qs 67 & 68"?!  No "Skinny Boy"!?  No "Searchin"?!  Mark Slater, I think this would be a good challenge for you to create the "Ultimate Graduation Playlist" with a diverse group of artists including our beloved Chicago and post it in the appropriate place outside of this community on the www. :)

When they say stripping, I guess they can isolate the sound of the band´s performers to understand exactly how it sounded originally withoutthe interference of other instruments or vocals!

True these recordings try emulating the originals. Wonderful work. Special recognition to Keith, Tris and Jason for outstanding performances which show exactly what sort of wood thay are carved out from. You can notice Bobby´s more mature voice never missing a note and the arrangements are so cool as well. Great that they took this initiative since live shows are always difficult to capture. Absolutely my favourite band of musicians and my longtime favourite songs which even my 30 year old daughters can sing!

Amazing rework of the classics. I must say, I got goosebumps listening to Keith's solo on 25 Or 6 To 4. I played both versions side by side and Keith nailed it.

I do love PC's voice, but I dare say after listening to this album for over a week now that some of the Nashville Session recordings are better than the originals...#14 being one of them.  Worth the download!

VERY. GOOD. ALBUM.   Glad I finally clued in and purchased it.

Just finished my first trip through "The Nashville Sessions" and it's really pretty astonishing.  Not only for absolutely nailing the original songs, but bringing this level of playing this many years later.  Special shout out to Keith Howland for tremendous guitar work that scarily channels the great Terry Kath.  Thanks for bringing these wonderful songs back to life again!

I concur with CarolAnne.  Thanks for getting the Nashville Recordings on CD.  Of course, I love all the original recordings with Terry's, Peter's, Danny's, Bill's & other former band members' contributions.  But since I have only seen the more current lineups (since 2006) of CHI band members perform live, this album will have special meaning to me in my collection.  Already ordered and look forward to listening to it.

Will there be a list of who exactly was performing/involved on these "Sessions"? I was thinking Lou and Drew Hester were involved at that time
