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.
