4 stars Im wiriting about the DVD, since I got only this part of the package. Well, it should be the best Kansas DVD ever: it includes them playing live in the Rock Concert series in 1974 and 1975. They are really stunning perfomances and worth the price of the DVD alone. There are some early videos of 8 songs, but if you expect to see Carry On at the time, forget it. Why on earth some they decided instead to put the live version already available on the Device... DVD is a mystery. The original video played a lot on TV and should be here.

The sound and image quality is very good, specially if you consider the techniques available at the time. The restoration was very well done. Its a journey through time and history (fortunatly the song selection respects the chronological time of each song release or performance). Those guys were a special and gifted band from the very beginning. The personal comments of band members about the song right before the video is also enlightning and funny. Even if the original Carry On... piece is missing, this is a must have for any prog fan.
