Kansas – Leftoverture Live & Beyond (InsideOut Music, 2017)

American progressive rock band Kansas has gone through numerous personnel changes. The current generation of Kansas is a well-oiled machine featuring a mix of original band members like drummer Phil Ehart and guitarist Williams along with new talented musicians and former band members from different stages that have returned.

Although the most recent Kansas recording has strayed away from progressive rock, Leftoverture Live & Beyond is a tribute to some of the band’s finest material, which happens to be from the progressive rock era. Kansas was characterized among other things by the use of the violin and the violin is back in the hands of David Ragsdale.

New vocalist Ronnie Platt does a great job, performing the band’s most iconic songs.

With the classic era prog-rock leaning song selection and being a live album, Kansas treats the listener to an instrumental fest of fiery electric guitars, keyboards and violin.
The landmark “Leftoverture” album is performed in its entirety.

“Leftoverture Live & Beyond” is available as a double CD digipak, four 180 Gram Vinyl boxed set, and digital format.
