Lost Chicago Album Coming Out This Month
In his book, The Greatest Music Never Sold, author Dan Leroy writes about the Stone Of Sisyphus, the great lost Chicago album. Recorded in 1993 and produced by Peter Wolf, Sisyphus became a cult record immediately after Warner Bros. refused to release it because it wasn't the Chicago record that was expected. Knowing what they had created and not willing to compromise, the band left Warner Bros. and took the album with them.
Now, 15 years later, on June 17, this 11-song album with four bonus tracks will finally be available from Rhino Records at all physical and digital outlets. Powered by Chicago's celebrated horn section, the tracks on SISYPHUS have bite, power and swing, and the "fire in the belly" that one associates usually with debut albums. - Wanna hear it?
