|Peter Cetera chronology|
A much more rock-oriented album than Chicago had been producing at the time, Cetera released the album in December 1981 while still a member of the band. Released on Full Moon Records, a subsidiary of Warner Brothers (reissued in 2004 on Wounded Bird Records), the album was not commercially successful, peaking at number 143 on the Billboard 200 chart. However, it is notable because Cetera is the sole writer for all songs on the album save one—"I Can Feel It," which Cetera co-wrote with Ricky Fataar and Carl Wilson. The single "Livin' In The Limelight," the only hit from the album, charted at number six in the Billboard Mainstream Rock.
One year after Peter Cetera was released, Cetera and Chicago launched a major comeback with the number one single "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" and album Chicago 16. After 1984's Chicago 17 was also a massive hit, Cetera left the band to concentrate fully on his solo career.
