Kansas Stars InTheStudio For Leftoverture's 35th Anniversary
Hailing from Topeka with its blend of progressive American rock, Kansas cemented their place in ʻ70s rock history with their breakthrough fourth album Leftoverture which would spawn the hit "Carry On Wayward Son" as well as "Whatʼs On My Mind", "The Wall" and the radio favorite "Miracles Out of Nowhere". Kerry Livgren shares with show host Redbeard just how special the recording of Leftoverture was and how, for the band, itʼs never quite been duplicated.
"There was a kind a magic feeling around the recording of Leftoverture that years later, as we recorded our subsequent albums, we kept saying, 'What was it that we did that made this come out that way?' .We went back to the same studio, we used the same place, the same people and we weren't able to recapture that... So I attribute it to the songs."
InTheStudio can be heard on over 50 radio stations across North America. The Kansas/ InTheStudio program will air the week of December 26 - January 1. Stream it online here.
