5 stars What a great compilation is this Box-set!

In my opinion this compilation is amazing besides Sail-on and The Ultimate Kansas, this Box- set includes a demo from 1973 "Can I Tell You" and sounds a bit slowly here, they add more solos in this one as well. In other hand the band also includes three recordings from rare songs that the band did not play too often in their tours back in 70`s, "On the other side" , "Incomudro - Hymn to the Atman" and "Death of Mother Nature Suite" were amazing versions on stage these cuts even have extended solos from the band members except "OTOS" that is played like the studio version nonetheless it's amazing the live sound of the band!

Also they include a great new song called "Wheels" this song is some sort of "Hold on" with an amazing violin in backwards, the band just includes the original line-up era from their Debut till' Audio-Vision, Im not a great fan of compilation but this one is rather amazing for my taste and the package is excellent!

If you want to try the amazing sound of Kansas this Box-set would be my choice with Sail-on! It`s great to be back! 5 stars!
