Every few years, someone comes along to set records that last a lifetime. Their songs and music stay with you for the rest of your life and become part of the popular culture. Kansas is one band that fits that very definition of special artists. Fans can recall every lyric, beat drop and pluck of their guitar string when they listen to their evergreen tracks. Their recordings have stood the test of time and will continue to entertain generations for years to come.
Kansas is Formed
In the late sixties and early seventies, there were two main progressive rock bands in Topeka, Kansas. One was initially know as the “The Reasons Why” before they changing their name to “Saratoga.”The band consisted of Kerry Livgren (guitar, keyboards), who would write the music and songs. The second band was “White Clover” and had Phil Ehart (drums, percussion) and Dave Hope (bass). In 1970, these two bands merged to form Kansas. The partnership was short lived as creative differences led to the dissolution of the band.
By 1973, Ehart and Hope had reformed “White Clover” along with Robby Steinhardt (vocals, violin, cello, and viola), Steve Walsh (vocals, keyboards, synthesizers, percussion) and Rich Williams (guitars). Soon after they managed to recruit Livgren as well and once again adopted the name Kansas. Within a year they had signed their first major record deal and were on their way to greatness.
Kansas Step up and Deliver
Kansas released their first self titled album in 1974 and it charted at the hundred and seventy fourth spot on the Billboard charts. It was certified gold just like their follow up albums, “Song for America” and “Masque” which were released in 1975. They made it to number fifty seven and seventy respectively and laid the groundwork for their most successful albums to date.
“Leftoverture” was released in 1976 and made it to number five on the Billboard charts, becoming their first top ten recording in history. It was certified six times platinum as well. Their following album, “Point of Know Return” also became a sextuple platinum album. It made it to number four on the US music charts and the single titled “Dust in the Wind” became the band’s highest selling song to date. It made it to number six on the Billboard singles chart and was certified platinum, with over a million sales worldwide.
Kansas also has a live album, as well as a compilation album that managed to record platinum level sales. Their live album, titled “Two for the Show” came out in 1978 and made it to number seventy eight on the Billboard charts. Even though their compilation effort, titled “The Best of Kansas” only made it to one hundred and fifty fourth spot on the US music charts, it was certified four times platinum and is among their best selling albums.An incredible legacy
Kansas has a sound that resonates with a wide variety of people, which is why it has been used in everything from television shows to movies and video games. Some of the biggest names in music today like the Foo Fighters, Dream Theater and Scorpions have professed being influenced by the band and have covered their songs over the years. The use of their tracks in movies like ‘Old School,’ television shows like ‘Supernatural’ and video games like ‘Guitar Hero’ have provided them with an even more diversified fan base.
As they now make a comeback to the stage and the recording studio, here is the chance all their fans have been waiting for. To watch these legends in their element, playing some of their greatest hits is a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you want to be part of the experience, then get your Kansas the Band tickets and catch them as they headline a concert to remember for a long time to come yet.
