All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
By the late '70s, Kansas had not only established themselves as one of America's most adventurous progressive rock bands, they even had a number of Top 20 hits to their credit. And as they finally paused for a breath after a string of five increasingly successful studio albums, it made perfect sense to fill the gap with a live album. Originally released as a double-vinyl set, Two for the Show is a sprawling, mind-boggling affair that juggles such epics as "Journey from Mariabronn" and the self-explanatory "Magnum Opus" both of which will undoubtedly thrill fanatics with their extended improvisations with mandatory hit singles "Carry on Wayward Son" and "Dust in the ...

    Many fans have waited a long time to see a proper CD reissue of Kansas' live album, which was voted number 43 by the readers of Classic Rock Revisited.com's "Best 50 Live Albums." A. "The original CD release cut the track "Closet Chronicles" out to fit the album on 1 CD." Now finally, 30 years from its original release Legacy Recordings has issued a 2-CD deluxe edition with 10 unreleased tracks and a restoration of the song "Closet Chronicles." The live album showcases Kansas at the top of their game flowing effortlessly through an enjoyable set list of classic Kansas songs. The bonus disc allows fans to hear great live renditions of tracks like "Cheyenne Anthem," "Miracles Out of Nowhere," and "Sparks of the Tempest." The remastered sound is incredible! Thanks Legacy for making many Kansas fans very happy with this release. Now when can we expect expanded and remastered versions of "Monolith," "Audio Visions," "Vinyl Confessions," and "Drastic Measures"?
