    Do You Own - Kansas - Leftoverture?

    I was always a big Kansas and Dave Hope (bassist) fan. The first 3 Kansas albums (Kansas, Song For America, and Masque) were all really good but they were not quite big yet and were seen as a progressive band. When Leftoverture came out, the band reached mass appeal but maintained their progressive status. I saw Kansas several times over the years with different lineups; but, the original band was my favorite and they were extremely tight in concert.

    Leftoverture is Kansas' Masterwork - Classic album. Strong throughout. Holds up well to this day.

    Had it on vinyl when it first came out. Have it on CD currently.

    Saw them on the Masque tour first. Seen them a few times over the decades. Steve Walsh's voice has been kinda shot for years though...
     
  3. Had it on vinyl only. Since lost to the mists of time.

    Thought I still had the vinyl...Can't seem to find it.

    Carry On may be my all-time favorite bass part to play.

    Don't own it but I remember my first time listening to the album. I knew my prog heroes cited Kansas but I had no idea they were so prog until that I heard that record.

    Great album.

    Absolutely! Dave Hope a huge influence as I was initially a pick-only player and my first bass was a Fender P Bass.
     
  8. Love Leftoverture - a total work of art! Carry on Wayward Son held a great deal of meaning to me on a very personal level back then, and still does to this day.

    Bought it on vinyl when it first came out. I still have it. I also own it on cassette and cd.
     
  10. Yes, in several formats. I was a Kansas fan after seeing them on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert and saw them several times back then.

    No. I can name exactly two of their songs and that's it. I don't do "heartland rock."
