Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the release of their classic Pieces Of Eight album– and a whole lot more besides. Having welcomed on board guitarist Tommy Shaw, the Chicago band began to enjoy hitherto unexpected chart success. With stardom came disillusionment – but the experience would inspire the greatest albums of the band’s long and storied career.
