V Evropi je kompilacija izšla pod imenom The Chicago Story: Complete Greatest Hits z drugačnim vrstnim redom skladb.

The Very Best of Chicago: Only the Beginning zajema skoraj vse največje uspehe skupine iz celotne kariere, z vseh albumov, razen s Chicago 13 (1979) in Chicago XIV (1980). Nekatere skladbe so se na albumu pojavile v spremenjeni obliki, vključno s skladbama »I'm a Man«, pri kateri je bil odrezan bobnarski solo Dannyja Seraphinea, in »Dialogue (Part I & II)«, ki se je na albumu pojavila v skrajšani singel verziji.
