In the dawning age of video, the band needed a focal point, and bassist Peter Cetera -- already the voice behind Chicago's soft rock smashes like "If You Leave Me Now," which had made significant inroads with the MOR audience -- was the logical choice. So it wasn't a huge surprise that, following Chicago XVII, Cetera decided to use his new celebrity to strike out on his own. He'd already come close to leaving a few years earlier, making his first solo album when Chicago was at a commercial low point; this time he had plenty of momentum, reinforced with a little cross-marketing for the movie The Karate Kid, Part II. Cetera's gallant "The Glory of Love" served as the film's theme and became a major hit as well as defined his post-Chicago sound -- essentially XVII without the horns, with one ultra-slick L.A. producer (Michael Omartian) replacing another (David Foster). The loss of brass, even in the subservient role it had come to play in post-resurrection Chicago, leaves Solitude/Solitaire bland around the edges, and since Omartian went for more trendy embellishments than Foster (especially on up-tempo tracks like "Big Mistake") the album doesn't have the timeless sound of Cetera's former work. However, his familiar tenor and gift for melody insure a pleasant listen even today, the well-crafted balladry making the lack of bite bearable. ~ Dan LeRoy

Glory of Peter!

Created: 08/12/08
One of the few places left to find that 80s classic "Glory of Love (from Karate Kid Pt. 2). Even the fabled iTunes doesn't carry this song- which is the big reason- if not only reason- to get this album. The other songs are not bad in their own right. Masquerade is pretty good and one of the only other songs that sticks out in my mind. Definitely worth a listen to!

Excellent CD. Coming from the breakup of the Band Chicago to come out swinging with 2 #1 singles--Glory of Love and The Next Time I Fall--is a tremendous feat. I bought this CD because it's simply a excellent piece of mid-80's memorabilia. A great trip down memory lane!

I really like the easy sounds and his music has feeling and meaning. He sings from the heart. If the song Glory of Love was the only recording it still would be worth the price.
