Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested). Cover looks great; very light scuffing (front/back). Inner sleeve is original (lyrics/photo). Spine is unbroken and easy-to-read. Very little shelf-wear along top/bottom-edge and corners. Opening is crisp with signs of light use. (Not a cut-out.)

Chicago 18, by the American band Chicago, peaked at #35 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and has been certified gold. As the successor to 1984's multiplatinum smash hit Chicago 17, this album marked a new era for Chicago: their post-Peter Cetera years. Cetera quit the band for a solo career in 1985, after Chicago denied his request to do solo albums while still being with them (which would have been similar to the arrangement between Phil Collins & Genesis at the time). Chicago eventually hired Jason Scheff, son of Jerry Scheff (who had backed up Elvis Presley for years), to replace Cetera's high register vocals and bass duties. In a twist of fate, Scheff was discovered after submitting a song demo for consideration on Cetera's second solo album. With Scheff's uncanny ability to replicate his predecessor, Chicago was able to continue. Although founding member Robert Lamm still took an active part in the band, the most used voices in Chicago now belonged to their two newest recruits: Scheff and Bill Champlin, who had joined the band in 1981. Because their sound was now so rooted in mid-1980s soft rock, Chicago again sanctioned the production duties of David Foster to create a familiar follow-up to Chicago 17. After his third consecutive album with them, Chicago would attempt to broaden their sound with new producers on their next project. On Chicago 19, radio would once again embrace ballads, this time from the pen of Diane Warren. The band decided on recording an updated high-tech remake of 25 or 6 to 4 (#48) but it failed to scale the charts. Trombonist James Pankow is listed as a co-writer on the classic Lamm tune. Chicago then retreated safely back into ballad-mode, and the follow-ups Will You Still Love Me? (#3) and If She Would Have Been Faithful... (#17) became major hits. Newcomer Scheff was the singer on all three releases. The album also featured a brief, a cappella horn riff, Pankow's Free Flight.
