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 playlists 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. The London Symphony-assisted Always Never the Same followed in 1998, and in 2000 Kansas issued Somewhere to Elsewhere, their 14th studio album (and last to date), which saw the return of founder singer/songwriter Kerry Livgren. Subsequent years found Kansas continuing to tour and release compilations and live albums, culminating in their 2014 inductions into the Kansas Hall of Fame and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, which coincided with the group's 40th anniversary. Miracles Out of Nowhere, a DVD/CD career retrospective, followed in early 2015. ~ Jason Ankeny

Best Kansas album? For me it's Masque. Never liked Dust in the Wind and all those mellow songs they became famous for. These guys ROCKED! Listen to the song Of Mysteries and Mayhem sometime. It will blow your mind and change your perception of Kansas.

Kansas may not ever come back with any great new songs, but check them out when they are near you. They still sound great (even without the electric violin and Robbie Steinhardt). Steve Walsh's voice still kills it and even as a 4-piece they sound HUGE! Walsh actually has aged to look similar to the old man on the Leftoverture album (sorry Mr. Walsh but it's true). I catch them at our local annual fair when they are there and I swear it's like a high-school reunion! Good times!

Kansas was not an 80's band! Kansas was firmly rooted in the 70's and I will not allow anyone to change their prime decade! The 80's was responsible for the destruction of Kansas, Journey, Foreigner, Styx, Boston, Yes, and all the other great AOR bands! Very few bands survived the 80's. Flock of Seagulls was 80's! Thompson Twins was 80's! Tears for Fears was 80's, etc.! The 80's sucked for rock and roll. Period. Rant complete.... .
