Native Window
Review by Gary Hill
It’s Kansas, but it isn’t. When you have Billy Greer, David Ragsdale , Phil Ehart and Richard Williams as the members of a band you can be sure the comparisons to Kansas well be rampant – since all of these guys have been in that group.

Kansas - Device-Voice-Drum DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This DVD is one that has both positive and negative aspects. On the positive side the performance here is very strong, and it is just plain nice to have a Kansas video.

Kansas - Drastic Measures
Review by Gary Hill

I have to admit that the pop era of Kansas really turned me off to the band. That meant that I missed a lot of the discs in that period – and this was one of those.

Kansas - Kansas (Remaster)
Review by Gary Hill
Along with Song For America, this disc is the first in a series of remasters of classic albums by this American prog band. The two CD's definitely show different sides to the band.

Kansas - Leftoverture
Review by Gary Hill

This was the breakthrough disc for Kansas. Many times that means “sell out” album. That’s definitely not the case here.

Kansas - Live at Taste of Chicago, 2000
Review by Gary Hill
Kansas is a band that started as one of the premiere progressive rock bands of America. As many prog bands did, they drifted into the sea of pop music, diluting their prog sensibilities and gaining wide market appeal for their efforts.

Kansas - Live in Tonawanda, New York, August, 2007
Review by Sonya Kukcinovich Hill
This was absolutely an amazing event held as part of the Canal Series Concerts on the banks of the Erie Canal in Tonawanda, New York, just a stone's throw from Buffalo.

Kansas - Masque
Review by Greg Olma
I don’t know why I never considered Kansas a prog band.  I was always putting them in the classic rock genre and leaving it at that.

Kansas - Monolith
Review by Gary Hill
There was a period of Kansas’ output I stayed away from like the plague. This disc was set firmly in that time.

Kansas - Point Of Know Return
Review by Gary Hill

If Leftoverture was the album that really broke Kansas, this was the one that thrust them into superstardom. The thing is, again they did it without sacrificing their progressive rock roots.

Kansas - Somewhere to Elsewhere
Review by Gary Hill
Somewhere to Elsewhere finds Kansas back to their older styles while still being innovative and originally. Fans of the classic prog era of this band should really be able to sink their teeth into this release.

Kansas - Two For The Show
Review by Steve Alspach
Kansas rode their crest of popularity in the late seventies with this two-album set that displays their fine skills. Released after "Point of Know Return," this album was recorded during several concert performances at various venues in the U.S. in 1977 and 1978.

Kansas - Two For the Show 30th Anniversary Edition
Review by Gary Hill
Kansas is a band that hasn’t always gotten the respect they deserve in the progressive rock community. Sure, part of that fact is due to their pop rock period in the mid portion of their career.

Kansas - Works In Progress
Review by Gary Hill
This disc is a new compilation from Kansas. There is one interesting paradox (and you might note that that is in fact a title of a Kansas song - although one not included on this set) here.
