Listen: Chicago’s Robert Lamm Solo Compilation

Share This:

Omnivore Recordings has released Robert Lamm’s Time Chill, A Retrospective, the first-ever look back at the music Lamm—a founding member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chicago, and a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame—has been composing as a solo artist for nearly 20 years. Lamm has been writing and recording with Chicago for 50 years, with 16 top 10 singles and 17 platinum albums with the group to his credit.

The collection, released June 2, contains 15 songs that hail from solo albums Lamm 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 his track-by-track 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.”
