Some true and false about The Chicago Transit Authority:

 

True - The band had to reduce their royalties because of the multi-album format of the band's first four releases.

 

And false… they didn’t stop doing double albums because of running out of material. It was their record company, and it’s policy of only paying royalties on only ten songs on an album… the first four Chicago albums had between 12 and 31 songs.

But ahead of them, they sent a demo tape to Brian Epstein, the Beatles manager, he liked it, gave the tape to Robert Satigwood, who was working for Epstein at the time. When the brothers docked back in England in January of 1967, they hooked up with Stigwood; he got them a five-year contract with Polydor records.
