Back in 1989, I went to see Kansas at the Tower Theater - it's actually right ouside of Philadelphia (down the street, literally) in a suburb called Upper Darby. I was so blown away by their performance on Feburary 11th, I went back on the 14th to see it again. And I can't remember which night it was ... when I walked out back to go to my car (mom's car - i was still in high school!), and there was the mobile recording truck!!! After seeing the hanging mics above me, it hit me - I was like "HOLY $&@#!!! THEY'RE GONNA PUT OUT A LIVE ALBUM!!!" ... I waited and waited and waited! It never came out - until KBFH released this!
It's a great disc - I remember the show like it was yesterday.(In fact - the encore cover they did both nights of "Born To Be Wild" was omitted from this CD...)
I'm an odd kansas fan - a VERY late bloomer... didn't really get into 'em until 1984's greatest hits album! I kinda wrote 'em off - I was 12, c'mon! - until I heard Steve Walsh & Steve Morse on the radio ... in 1986! So, yes, naysayers - POWER got me BACK into Kansas! (... and consequently Steve Morse & the Dixie Dregs, which eventually led me to be a HUGE Dream Theater fan!)
Anyway ... BUY THIS DISC. It's a really good representation of what happened that night. Believe me, I was THERE, and probably could dig the ticket stub up to prove it. No, it's NOT "Two For The Show" - but it's worth owning for sure, whether you were there or not!
(Incidentally - Steve Morse DID play violin on Dust in the Wind, and, for some reason, Phil Ehart used triggered kick drums - I will never forget seeing him sitting behind this HUGE yellow drum kit, and these little drum trigger pads in place of the kick drums... quite the odd visual!)

This is a good live album let down by one crucial fact - Steve Walsh's once golden vocals have deteriorated badly, so much so that he can't even hit the notes in his own songs any more. And this really detracts from what is a decent live album and one much better than the album the concert was meant to promote - In The Spirit Of Things (see my review on this site).
As it stands the album is far superior to the awful Live At The Whisky and features an overall performance far in excess of that.
If you want to hear what Walsh and Kansas were once capable of spend your money on the truly incredible Two For The Show - which I called the best live album of all time in my review on this site.
Unlike Live At The Whisky this album is worth your money and it contains decent live versions of some of the only good songs from In The Spirit Of Things.
Recommendation to buy.

Having had the pleasure of seeing Kansas in their hayday (Leftoverture and Point of Know Return tours), I can honestly say that time has unfortunantly taken it's toll on one of rock's best set of pipes. I have been a Kansas fan since "Masque" (which you saddly cannot find on disk these days), which means that it saddens me greatly to have such a harsh criticism of Walsh. He is a talented song writer, but his voice has apparently given what it had to give. His singing is heartfelt, but it lacks the flexibility and range which he orginally wrote into the songs. Otherwise, the CD was enjoyable as the musicianship was flawless. It is always a treat to hear Phil on the drums and Steve Morse is certainly no disappointment. I would, however, advise any Kansas fans to buy "Two for the Show" first - if you already has this live CD, then this CD is a good but different addition to your addition. If there were only some way for Walsh and Livgren to collaborate again ... now that would be worth it.

Format: Audio CD
Kansas may be the greatest American live band...ever. As "flashy showmen," they will never be Kiss or Garth Brooks, but as players onstage, they are peerless--they can wail like a tornado or play as gently as a summer breeze, all with dexterity, sophistication, style, and soul...in short, they ROCK. Their superb 1978 release TWO FOR THE SHOW is an excellent document of Kansas when they were at their peak commercially, and captures them in all of their instrumental and vocal glory. This KBFH PRESENTS release is not bad, but it is somewhat inconsistent. First of all, the vocal performances are at times flat and weak...it's not just Walsh, but it's the harmony backing vocals also. Secondly, the absence of a violin and mult-layered, lush keyboards are glaring. Thirdly, the production is a bit flat...a lot of dynamics seem to be lost or muddied. Finally, the band's performance instrumentally is not their best ever...very good, perhaps, but not up to the normal "Category 5" standard. I will disagree with other reviewers: LIVE AT THE WHISKY is a better live CD than this one. Though Walsh's vocals are slightly worse on that CD, the band plays and sounds as good or better than ever on WHISKY. It is interesting to hear this version of Kansas doing a mix of a few of the old classic Kansas standards mixed with cuts from IN THE SPIRIT OF THINGS, plus their hit, "All I Wanted" from POWER. These guys can play, but it seems to take them awhile to get untracked on KBFH PRESENTS. The opener, "Magnum Opus," sounds like a pale imitation, a by rote run-through that has less passion than Elvis's 1000th performance of "CC Rider." "One Big Sky" suffers from flat, at times painfully so, vocals and a bizarre "cheer" in the middle break that is more grating than it is inspiring.Read more ›
