Chicago's Robert Lamm Releasing His First Retrospective Album

Robert Lamm

Robert Lamm, best known as a founding member of Chicago, has announced that he will be releasing his very first retrospective of his solo material this spring.

Entitled "Time Chill, A Retrospective," the package will feature solo music that spans almost 20 years from Lamm's career. It's set to hit stores on June 2nd via Omnivore Recordings. We were sent these details:

The collection contains 15 songs that hail from solo albums Robert has been producing since 1999. Included are tracks from his collaboration with Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys and Gerry Beckley of America; previously unissued remixes by longtime Lamm producer John Van Eps (including a take on Chicago's "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?"); and a previously unreleased version of Bobby Hebb's classic "Sunny."

"Musicians tend to listen to all types of music," Lamm writes in the liner notes. It's the way we are wired. Often we are hearing music internally. That's always been my experience. I observe, I read, I have interests in cinema, painting, sculpture, fashion, and performance. Those communications are what inspire me to compose music. These songs are an emotional and reactive narrative of my life, my love."

With track-by-track liners from Lamm, Time Chill, A Retrospective is the perfect primer for an up front and personal look at the music of Robert Lamm.
