Got to hear a couple iof tracks at the show about 10 days ago.  Should be a very good CD. Plus they are adding live tracks from the  Nearfest pre- show even better!

I'm also looking forward to this release.  I'm not a big Kansas fan (gasp), but I do like Kansas.  Proto Kaw is another story.  I really enjoyed the last release.

Awesome. Looking forward to it for sure.
One likes to believe
In the freedom of music
But glittering prizes
And endless Compromises
Shatter the illusion
Of integrity

Just to elborate on my note I was able to hear two tracks at the recent concert they did in Kansas City and they were great.  Some great piano played by Livgren in one around a nice song.  THe second song was little darker with a more bluesy feel in the song while the instrumental parts were very fast and more dynamic.  I don't know which one was which because they didn't say but we were told in advance the two songs were called Relics of the Tempest amd On the Eve of the Great Decline.  Another great cover too by Ken Westphal.

SWEET!!!!

BTW, the Kansas City concert was during Wheatfest, I presume?  Any chance you were able to catch Kerry in the encore of the Kansas concert the following night?  I really wanted to be there, but was stuck on business in Texas that weekend.  Major bummer!  I'm curious to hear from anyone what they thought of the performance.  I know it was just done as a gesture to the rabid fans in Kansas, but still - would have been great to see.

I can't wait for this album!  Kerry Livgren's writing cannot be matched.

And it might as well be raining, 'cause the sunlight hurts his eyes,
And his ears will never hear the children's cries

Yes part of Wheatfest 9/Bison Bash 1.  For those not knowing this is a gathering of Kansas Fans from the fan board kansasfans.com.  They do it once a year and have a bunch of people play some Kansas material with an ambitous setlist that I don't think the real band would touch anymore.  These guys go under the name the Traveling Wheatheads and they only play once a year. They includes Jake Livgren, Kerry's nephew who tours with Proto Kaw, who at point said with the type of music they guys played sometimes I wish i was Gene Simmons nephew.  So for how good they are is pretty suprising.  They play around an auction that raises money for one of the bands charities. This year we raised almost $2500 for a childrens autisic foundation. One of the items was a guitar Kerry had used on Somewhere to Elsewhere recordings signed by the entire band.  There were about 100 of us from 30 different states and three different countries. 

 We saw PK on Friday night and Kansas on Saturday and yes Kerry Livgren did play the encore's with Kansas.  Robby Stienhardt showed up at the PK concert and the auction too. What was really cool was Robby when introducing Kerry for the encore he was wearing a Proto-Kaw t-shirt.  Very cool people in both bands.   Had one of the best times in my life.   Hoping to get back there in Feb for the CD release party for The Wait of Glory.
