You won't see many Greatest Hits at B.T.R.C. because we are all album people.  Normally, we prefer to offer all the original albums with the individual songs presented the way the artist originally intended. That being said, we are very excited to offer The Best of Kansas as our Classic Rock Record of the Month for June.

Originally released in 1984, this is the first compilation album from Kansas. It features amazing hit songs from the band's first ten years. The album also boasts one new track - "Perfect Lover", a song that was dropped on all the CD versions starting in 1999. The pressing we're shipping has it back in place and represents the original 1984 release.  So, beyond the fact that the album looks amazing on red vinyl, it also has the original track listing that makes it a must-have for any Kansas fan.

Album Description:

With a legendary career spanning more than four decades, Kansas has firmly established itself as one of America's most iconic classic rock bands. This "garage band" from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide. The crown jewels of their catalog are unquestionably the two million-selling gold singles, "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind," which anchor this 4x platinum selling 1984 Best Of compilation. Dig deeper and you'll find further prog-rock gems like "Point Of Know Return," "Play the Game Tonight," "Song For America" and "The Wall" plus the exclusive new song "Perfect Lover."
