Some fans of the band CHICAGO thought this day would never come. Many have waited 15 years for it. An album CHICAGO recorded in 1993 finally goes on sale TODAY (6/17), reports CNN. The album's release by RHINO RECORDS has set off a wave of excitement on CHICAGO's fan club Web site.
"I am waaaaay excited about this," said a fan nicknamed "sprout." "I've been hearing about these songs for years, and now I'll actually get to hear them for myself! Yea!!!!!!"
"I am really glad to see RHINO finally releasing a forgotten masterpiece," another fan said.
The album, "Stone of Sisyphus," takes its name from a character in GREEK mythology who rolls a heavy stone up a hill only to have it roll back down -- again and again -- for eternity.
"It's very apropos, isn't it?" producer PETER WOLF said. "It took us 15 years to see the light of day."
