Artist: Kansas
Title: The 30th Anniversary Collection
Genre: Progressive Rock
Label: Epic/Legacy Recordings
Download: Sail On - The 30th Anniversary Collection, 1974-2004

Well another Kansas boxed set has hit our shores. That old ship is still sailing right along. It comes as no surprise that the popularity of this band has not waned over the years. Their staying power is evident with this three-disc set (two CDs and one DVD). You can still hear “Carry on Wayward Son” playing on the radio frequently, after all that is one of the songs that defined an era. Clearly, it was more than just a ‘70s thing. The musical juggernaut called Kansas has continued strongly into the new millennium, and they show no signs of slowing down.

This is without a doubt the finest package that the band has released to date. The only thing that is left is a full-blown career spanning boxed including all their studio albums, rarities and out takes. Of course, now you can get all of that from the recently remastered set of albums released earlier this year.

This music never ceases to amaze me. No matter how many times I hear a Kansas song, I pick up something different. They were, and remain an amazing unique band. Besides all of the best tracks from their career, now longtime fans get the best treat of all: live concert footage from the early Don Kirschner’s Rock Concert days, which I remember well, even though I was a crazed teenager back then. Included are old videos from the Monolith album period and more.

This is the definitive and ultimate Kansas boxed set, so far. Funny, I said that about the Ultimate Kansas set, too. I cannot wait to see what will come out next. I can never get enough of this band.
