Although Cetera recorded his eponymously titled solo debut in 1981, he remained with Chicago
full-time until 1985. Upon quitting the band, he soon returned to the top of the charts with "The Glory of Love," the first single from his album Solitude/Solitaire as well as the theme to the film The Karate Kid, Part II; that same year he scored another number one smash, "The Next Time I Fall," a duet with Amy Grant
. A year later he produced Agnetha Fältskog
's I Stand Alone, and upon resurfacing in 1988 with One More Story, Cetera scored with another duet, "After All," this one recorded with Cher
. After a four-year hiatus, he issued World Falling Down, his final release for Warner Bros.
One Clear Voice was released in 1995, and in 1997 Cetera issued You're the Inspiration, a collection of past hits and new material. Cetera stepped out of the limelight for a few years to enjoy his life and his family, and returned in 2001 with Another Perfect World. The holiday offering You Just Gotta Love Christmas followed in 2004. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
