Friday Music / Kansas 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering and Pressed at RTI
In 1974, superstars Kansas delivered one of the finest progressive rock albums of the classic rock era with their self-titled debut. Featuring the stunning line-up of Steve Walsh on keys and lead vocals, Phil Ehart on drums, Kerry Livgren on lead guitar, Robby Steinhardt on violin and lead vocals and Dave Hope on bass, the Kansas album would soon become the catalyst to take these rock giants to stages all over the world.
Their first appearance on Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert blew the album and the band wide open, as radio stations were getting calls to play their music and retail stores began to sell tons of copies. With hard rockers like "Can I Tell You," and the brilliant interpretation of J.J. Cale’s "Bringing It Back," the Kansas album could do no wrong.
Dig deeper into the grooves, and there you find prog rock champions like the beautiful "Lonely Wind," the artistry of "The Pilgrimage" and of course the album closer anthem "Death Of Mother Nature Suite." These tunes and the aforementioned rockers would become the heart and soul of the band and bring them future superstar acclaim afforded to only a few.
Friday Music is no stranger to the stunning recordings of Kansas. Therefore it is with much excitement they announce another installment in the Kansas/Friday Music 180 Gram Vinyl Series with their legendary debut masterpiece Kansas, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering and pressed at RTI.
