Now here's one from this side of the pond...Kansas. It's too easy to post up Dust in The Wind or Carry on My Wayward Son or Point Of No Return so here's a few deep tracks to check out.....

Love this song Wheels, it was a new bonus track off the Box Set released in 94
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWt9dnzazGU

Another hugely under rated album of theirs that didn't any air play or recognition whatsoever was Freaks of Nature released in 95.
Desperate Times, Hope once again, and Black fathom 4 are awesome

Hope once again (live) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZYz3NhOyTM
Desperate Times (album version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoOWqf2vGcQ
And this song kicks ass
Black Fathom 4 (album version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9E9mPblUNs

Well, I gave some listens to Ronnie Platt the new singer. He is a great guy I'm sure and he is giving it 100% but Steve Walsh is VERY, VERY, hard to replace in Kansas. The musicianship is top notch as always. They are playing a great set list these days, Only during an off year of available concerts to see would I plunk down the money to see them without Steve singing in all likelihood but it's not bad though.

Had to throw this in it's baseball season: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1N-UR1TzG1w

To be fair, here is Steve Walsh doing Point Of No Return in 2014, It is easy to see why he decided to retire shortly thereafter. He knew when to bow out based on strength of his performance obviously waning. Therefore Ronnie Platt it is.

Steve carried the torch for many years I saw them 9 times. I liked the bands first 3 albums the most, especially Can I tell You, Bringing it Back, Down The Road, Incomudro Hymm to the Atman, and Icarus borne on Wings of Steel.

Here is the new sound cloud preview of With This Heart from the new album The Prelude Implicit. I guess it is ok to share this. This is pretty good.

New song stream of the second single from the new album The Prelude Implicit, "Visibility Zero". Not a bad song at all. I like it, It has the Kansas sound and vibe. Being a big time Steve Walsh fan, it takes a little bit to nudge me along with a new singer. But the guys that are in the band have a right to carry on and make a living, they've earned it. Steve Walsh retired, so didn't leave them much choice but to find a new singer. Considering those circumstances. This is pretty good.

I agree. Not a bad song at all. At this stage of the game and their career given the circumstances (Walsh retiring/ Livgren's stroke) this is as close as your going to get to Kansas, and that is ok.
