Kansas

Fusing the complexity of British prog rock with an American heartland sound representative of their name, Kansas were among the most popular bands of the late '70s; though typically dismissed by critics, many of the group's hits remain staples of AOR radio play lists to this day. Formed in Topeka in 1970, the founding members of the group -- guitarist Kerry Livgren, bassist Dave Hope, and drummer Phil Ehart -- first played together while in high school; with the 1971 addition of classically trained violinist Robbie Steinhardt, they changed their name to White Clover, reverting back to the Kansas moniker for good upon the 1972 arrivals of vocalist/keyboardist Steve Walsh and guitarist Richard Williams. The group spent the early part of the decade touring relentlessly and struggling for recognition; initially, their mix of boogie and prog rock baffled club patrons, but in due time they established a strong enough following to win a record deal with the Kirshner label.

Kansas' self-titled debut LP appeared in 1974; while only mildly successful, the group toured behind it tirelessly, and their fan base grew to the point that their third effort, 1975's Masque, sold a quarter of a million copies. In 1976, Leftoverture truly catapulted Kansas to stardom. On the strength of the smash hit "Carry on Wayward Son," the album reached the Top Five and sold over three million copies. Released in 1977, Point of Know Return was even more successful, spawning the monster hit "Dust in the Wind." While the 1978 live LP Two for the Show struggled to break the Top 40, its studio follow-up, Monolith, the band's first self-produced effort, reached the Top Ten. That same year, Walsh issued a solo record, Schemer-Dreamer.

In the wake of 1980's Audio-Visions, Kansas began to splinter; both Hope and Livgren became born-again Christians, the latter issuing the solo venture Seeds of Change, and their newfound spirituality caused divisions within the band's ranks. Walsh soon quit to form a new band, Streets; the remaining members forged on without him, tapping vocalist John Elefante as his replacement. The first Kansas LP without Walsh, 1982's Vinyl Confessions, launched the hit "Play the Game Tonight," but after only one more album, 1983's Drastic Measures, they disbanded. In 1986, however, Kansas re-formed around Ehart, Williams, and Walsh; adding the famed guitarist Steve Morse as well as bassist Billy Greer, the refurbished band debuted with the album Power, scoring a Top 20 hit with "All I Wanted." When the follow-up, 1988's In the Spirit of Things, failed to hit, seven years passed before the release of their next effort, Freaks of Nature. Always Never the Same followed in 1998. Seeing the return of founder singer/songwriter Kerry Livgren, Somewhere to Elsewhere was released in 2000. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Nice great melodies
jeezo..... Song for America in '75 and the '76 tour was nothing short of astounding. The smaller venues were wonderful. Under 2000 people. Once they started doing the big arenas... it just wasn't the same.
GLAD GWAR COVERED THIS SONG BEFORE DAVE DIED !... RIP ODERUS ORUNGUS !!!
Dust in the wind, such a beautiful sad song.

Enough with the supernatural stuff, people.
Gonna make a noob question. What's super natural ?
Supernatural season finale theme song. Love it
this is a good song
I'm pretty sure everyone who lives in Kansas loves this band.
I bought this album when it first came out and still have it. Never got the Cd because the Lp cant be beat. Kansas has always been in my top 5 bands of all time.
Having seen literally hundreds of concerts since my first one in 1970, I can say without reservation that one of the greatest ever was Kansas in the summer of 1976 on their LEFTOVERTURE tour...with opening act AMBROSIA (!!!) in Lincoln, Nebraska at Pershing Auditorium. I had seen Kansas once prior to this (the MASQUE tour), and while they never fail to deliver, the LEFTOVERTURE concert was nothing short of spectral...t r a n s c e n d e n t . They were absolutely at the top of their form that tour...
Every time I go see these guys live...a mystical musical mirage is set inside my brain.. Let it take you to a higher plane man!!
Great band! Supernatural got me introduced to them.
Supernatural all the way. I love Kansas
You my boy blue!

One of the best rock bands ever
I thought it a battle between Kansas and Journey back then, I realize now that Kansas and Journey both are amazing bands in and of themselves. Kansas for me, Carry On Wayward Son, was amazing for me because there was very little peace then for me. But it's alright now<><
