    Don't know 'bout 'merica but I think I'm about the only one in Oz that's heard of Kansas. Still listen to the album I have. Were they big over there ?

    I've seen Kansas many times. Partially cause I lived in Kansas when they were breaking and hitting Wichita and surrounding areas. Love a big slice of their work, mostly the early stuff. I liked that they had a fiddle player.

    'Belexes'...Never would have guessed that Kansas was you favorite band...wink wink.

    When you start to dig in and listen to a lot of their stuff, just amazing music...the structure, textures, a lot of two guitar interaction between Kerry and Rich, let alone one of the best rock voices of all time in Walsh. also amazing violin by Robbie, and when I hear about drummers I don't hear Phil Ehart's name mentioned much.

    @Tone Guru , thanks for posting the track. I am a Kansas fan from back in the day with quite a few albums but DIO is the only singer I have ever followed and really enjoyed that track.

    Awesome way to start the day.
