Impeccably Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso with Ron McMaster! Pressed at RTI!
In 1974, superstars Kansas delivered one of the finest progressive rock albums of the classic rock era with their debut and self titled smash Kansas. Featuring the stunning line-up of Steve Walsh on keys and lead vocals, Phil Ehart on drums, Kerry Livgren playing the lead guitar, Robby Steinhardt on violin and lead vocals and Dave Hope on bass, the Kansas album would soon become the catalyst to take these rock giants to stages all over the world.
Their first appearance on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert blew the album and the band wide open, as radio stations were getting calls to play their music and retail stores began to sell tons of albums. With hard rockers like Can I Tell You, and the brilliant interpretation of J.J. Cale's Bringing It Back, the Kansas album could do no wrong.
Dig deeper into the grooves, and there you find prog rock champions like the beautiful Lonely Wind, the artistry of The Pilgrimage and of course the album closer anthem Death Of Mother Nature Suite. These tunes and the aformentioned rockers would become the heart and soul of the band and bring them future superstar acclaim afforded to only a few.
