For younger people who might think that Chicago is an 80s Peter Cetera ballad engine, get this album immediately. It's cheap and easy to find on vinyl or CD and it is an incredible collection of jazzy rock with killer horns and amazing electric guitar. Really the first 5 albums are pretty great, but this is the one to have if no other. You will count yourself a Chicago fan if not a fan of music from this era in general. Either way, it will be a good turn.
