Encourage the release of archival videos and recordings of Chicago from their early years:

The timeless band Chicago has thrilled us with the release of their 50th Anniversary box set, filled with electrifying performances of the Terry Kath era and beyond. We are forever grateful to have these recordings to cherish and to show new listeners what a force of nature the band was in that era. With the greatest respect, we humbly ask the band to continue to dig into their archives for these hidden gems, music that thrills us with its power and beauty. The recordings and videos that remain locked away would give fans, old and new, the chance to hear and see more of their sheer brilliance. For example...the video of the November 1972 Arie Crown Theater show, the 1969 Central Park concert, the 1971 Tokyo and Stockholm shows, the 1977 LA Forum, Verona, Amsterdam shows...all of these videos are important snapshots in time of the band during Terry's era. The recordings of the 1971 De Paul, Austin State, Iowa State and other college concerts are full of fire and power of the early band. The 1969 Paris show in it's entirety, the 1972 Kennedy Center show, the 1972 Sydney show, the 1973 Chicago Stadium show....all of these and more would be a memorable cap on the 50 year celebration of this storied band. Those of us who are working hard to keep Terry's legacy alive and thriving would relish in any and all of these releases. Thank you for giving us the epic, incredible Isle of Wight show, it is a stunning, gorgeous performance by the band and we deeply hope that this is just the beginning of what we can expect.
