Love, Glory, Honor & Heart: The Complete Full Moon & Warner Bros. Recordings 1981-1992′‘ is a 6CD box set released by Cherry Red Records including every recording PETER CETERA committed to tape during his time with the Full Moon and Warner Bros. labels from 1981 through 1992
All has been carefully remastered including previously unreleased material as bonus, such as a video version of Theme From ”The Karate Kid Part II”. Additionally, many tracks appear for the first time on CD.
From 1981 through 1992, PETER CETERA released four solo albums, ‘Peter Cetera’ (1981), ‘Solitude/Solitaire’ (1986), ‘One More Story’ (1988), ‘World Falling Down’ (1992). These albums were released during and after his time as a member of the groundbreaking group CHICAGO.
This box set contains deluxe editions (bonus tracks) of each of the four above-mentioned albums, plus 2 extra discs with rarities impossible to find.
A must for ’80s music fans…

Peter released a total of 16 singles in the 12 year period from 1981 through 1992.
These include ‘Glory Of Love (Theme From The Karate Kid, Part II)’ (US #1, UK #3), a duet with Contemporary Christian Crossover singer AMY GRANT with ‘The Next Time I Fall’ (US #1, UK #78), ‘One Good Woman’ (US #4, UK #82), ‘Best Of Times’ (US #22 Adult Contemporary), ‘Restless Heart’ (US #35 Hot 100, US #1 Adult Contemporary), his duet with CHAKA KHAN ‘Feels Like Heaven’ (US #71 Hot 100, US #5 Adult Contemporary), and ‘Even A Fool Can See’ (US #68 Hot 100, US #3 Adult Contemporary).

This 6CD box set also features other collaborations – ‘I Wasn’t The One (Who Said Goodbye)’ (US #93 Hot 100, US #19 Adult Contemporary) – duet with ABBA member AGNETHA FÄLTSKOG. Musicians DAVID GILMOUR (PINK FLOYD), MADONNA and BONNIE RAITT make guest appearances, as well.

Among some of the previously unreleased material are remixes of ‘Body Language (There In The Dark)’ by the legendary SHEP PETTIBONE. They are available for the first time ever on this box set in four versions – 7” Mix, 7” Remix, 12” Remix and Bonus Beats. The track was originally scheduled to be the second single from Peter’s third solo album One More Story, but never released.

This box set represents Cetera’s distinctive voice & style all over the ’80s. I have to say the way he evolved became a guilty pleasure, not the type of thing you brag about to friends, almost like Michael McDonald solo & the Doobie Brothers mid-to-late-70s & early 80s period & Yacht Rock… thing is, he started out as an artful rocker/bass player/singer with Chicago & their whole catalogue is amazing
But… in 1976, he wrote & sang lead on ballad “If You Leave Me Now”, which unfortunately typecast him as a balladeer on radio with that distinctive high tenor voice…a blessing & a curse… Peter still did rockers but what radio & the label did was not good… choosing ballads OR rockers, not both, which unfortunately, not enough people heard or were reminded by his other sides.

Turns out, after Chicago genius guitarist/singer Terry Kath died in 1978, much of the focus was weighed on Peter, which affected his music from then on. After the really good 3 Chicago albums at the end of the 70s / beginning of the 80s didn’t sell well, Peter made his first solo album in 1981, the self-titled “Peter Cetera”, a hard-edged rock & roll album, not one of ballads, and I think this focus as a rock album was his way of reasserting himself with his rock roots, not as JUST a balladeer.
It didn’t totally worked although there was a rock radio hit in the great crunchy “Living In The Limelight” with ace guitar work by Toto’s Steve Lukather.

Then Chicago regrouped with David Foster & did 16 & 17, another blessing & curse… it was a mixture of ballads & rockers & great production, but with the focus on Peter’s voice, which boosted his ego & thinking he could leave the band & go solo in 1985. This was not amicable by the way… yes 17 had 2 huge ballads in “Hard Habit To Break” & “You’re The Inspiration” which got killed on radio and also MTV, yet the 2 rockers which were just as successful artistically in showcasing Peter’s style, the stark edgy “Stay The Night” & the amazing Peter co-write power-pop gem “Along Comes A Woman” were better songs!!
Anyhoo, Peter then went solo in 1985, right after Chicago’s contribution to the USA For Africa album “We Are The World”, the pretty good 17 outtake “Good For Nothing”… and never returned to Chicago.

Disc 2 of this box, 1986’s “Solitude/Solitaire”, is expanded to double CD of bonus. The album had two #1 single ballads, “Glory Of Love” from “The Karate Kid Part 2” & the Amy Grant duet “Next Time I Fall”, BUT the album as a whole is a lot more diverse, with just as many (or more) upbeat rocking tunes like the album’s following singles “Big Mistake” & “Only Love Knows Why”, then soundtrack song “Stay With Me”.

Discs 4 & 5 are solo album #3, the Patrick Leonard-produced “One More Story” from 1988, which I personally think is Pete’s best-realized solo record, with a perfect fusion of artful ambition and pop accessibility, not far off of Leonard’s 1990 critically-received genius band Toy Matinee
“One More Story” features appearances by Madonna (Pat produced her “Like A Prayer” at around the same time & has a similar feel & ambition), Bonnie Raitt, David Gilmour & more…”One Good Woman” was the big hit here & it’s a great song with a great arrangement, love the drums on it.
The extra disc 5 is plenty of rare singles & unreleased.

Then finally Disc 6 is Pete’s final Warner album, 1992’s “World Falling Down”, a polished, lush produced record. There was a Top 40 hit in “Restless Heart” & there is a very good Chaka Khan duet in “Feels Like Heaven”, but in 1992 the age of alt-rock & grunge was not friendly towards Peter Cetera’s AC pop sound. It wasn’t a massive seller, but it did pretty well due his huge fan base.

”Love, Glory, Honor & Heart: The Complete Full Moon & Warner Bros. Recordings 1981-1992” is a must have for Cetera & Chicago fans, but also all ’80s enthusiasts out there
The audio in this collection has been remastered from the original master tapes stored in the Warner Bros. archives, and is top notch.

    Brilliant post mate. Dann Huff does guitars on most tracks on these albums and Bruce Gaitsch contributes a fair bit as well.

    This is a great upload…love Cetera. Also, I would like to request a specific album: The Fifth Avenue Band – Really (1990). Really great AOR with a Westcoast / Yacht Rock edge in places. Features Michael Thompson and Tim Pierce and really great personnel.

    Very good quality, levels and EQ are equivalent to the original releases. Fans of Peter Cetera will also want to consider Once Clear Voice (1995), Another Perfect World (2001), You’re the Inspiration: A Collection (2002), and You Just Gotta Love Christmas (2004).

    Cannot believe the bonus/extra CD of this Collection leaves off one of Peter Cetera’s best songs ever: “No Explanation” from the 1990 blockbuster movie “Pretty Woman”soundtrack. It certainly deserves recognition on this collection.
