Kansas - The Classic Albums Collection 1974-1983

Albums included:
Kansas (1974)
Song For America (1975)
Masque (1975)
Leftoverture (1976)
Point of Know Return (1977)
Two for the Show (2 CDs) (1978)
Monolith (1979)
Audio-Visions (1980)
Vinyl Confessions (1982)
Drastic Measures (1983)

The definitive box set documenting the classic recordings of Kansas, the trail-blazing American progressive rock band, the collection contains remastered CD editions of the band's ten albums released on the Kirshner and CBS Records labels between 1974 and 1983, with live and rare bonus tracks from the period. The Two for the Show live collection has been expanded to include bonus performances not included on the album's original vinyl release.

With a sound as expansive as the band's home state, Kansas scored big in the 1970s by applying an all-American heartland sensibility to the influence of such British progressive-rock bands as Yes, Genesis and King Crimson. Merging complex, classically-influenced arrangements with a boogie rock punch, Kansas built a distinctive, commanding sound that propelled the band to platinum-selling arena-filling stardom. Such timeless tunes as "Dust in the Wind," "Carry on Wayward Son" and "Point of Know Return" became radio staples and classic rock anthems emblematic of an era.

By the time Kansas released its eponymous debut album in 1974, the band had already developed a powerful live act and built a solid regional following. Their subsequent releases
Song for America and Masque expanded the group's audience, but it was 1976's multi-platinum Leftoverture that propelled Kansas into the commercial big leagues. Point of Know Return continued the band's ascent, and the 1978 live album Two for the Show captured Kansas at the peak of its performing powers. Monolith and Audio-Visions showed Kansas continuing to refine its sound, while 1982's Vinyl Confessions produced one of the band's biggest singles, "Play the Game Tonight." 1983's Drastic Measures introduced Kansas to the MTV generation via the video/radio hit "Fight Fire with Fire."
