By 1976, it was go big or go home for this intrepid six-man band from Topeka, Kansas. Because of the hit "Carry On Wayward Son" ( submitted by the prolific Kerry Livgren even as the band was packing up to leave rehearsals ) and radio hits "Miracles Out of Nowhere","The Wall", "Cheyenne Anthem", and "What's On My Mind ", Leftoverture gave Kansas rock statehood to the tune of over four million sold. Livgren is joined by Richard Williams, Phil Ehart, Steve Walsh, & the late original Kansas violinist/singer Robbie Steinhardt here In the Studio.

Five years ago the first new original studio album in sixteen years, "The Prelude Implicit", from all-American progressive rockers Kansas, was one of the most pleasant musical surprises in 2016...like discovering the "lost" album which would have fit naturally between early mid-Seventies efforts "Song for America" and "Masque". Lifers drummer Phil Ehart and guitarist Richard Williams are joined here In the Studio by violinist David Ragsdale and impressive veteran lead singer Ronnie Platt.
