The first CD, "Early Recordings from Kansas 1971-1973", is exactly what it sounds like - Livgren dug out old recordings, cleaned them up as much as possible and released them on this CD. KANSAS fans will recognize many passages from later KANSAS CDs as well as some song titles, . "Belexes" and "Incommudro". After Kerry Livgren's stroke and a statement that he dissolved Proto-Kaw I had no big expectations to ever see new album from this original Kansas group. It came as a big surprise. Some 40 years since they firstly met together, these guys have all my respect.
