5 stars Some live albums are my favourites instead of studio albums. The reason is that live albums show bands being more spontaneus playing on the stage. This album is one of my favourites. Kansas being recorded at their peak after their "Leftoverture" and "Point of Known Return" albums. Every member of the band plays very good. The band gives time for every member to shine. I mean, there are times when not all members play a t the same time, which gives "space" and variety. Phil Ehart is a very good drummer, as someone said in other reviews. I prefer these live versions of "The Wall", "Magnum Opus" and "Journey from Mariabronn". Steve Walsh sings with energy and feeling. One of the things that I like from Kansas is that they could play progressive music with some heavy parts (due to two lead guitar players). They did a good mixture of progressive music with classical tones and heavy rock playing. The recording is very good being from the seventies, but the CD obviously sounds better than the L.P. The CD omits "Closet Chronicles" due to CD time limitations. This live version of "Closet Chronicles" was released in the CD re-issue of "The Best of Kansas".
