Forget what other compilations you have, if so you dont need this anyway. But if you dont have The Ultimate Kansas, The Best Of Kansas, Sail On, etc. I myself am a Kansas freak so I have bought every CD they have just to have it! Although this may not be the best, judging it purely on what it is it's a decent CD with a lot of good tracks. Compared to some of the BAD newer Kansas CDs over the past decade or so, this compilation is much better then some of those. For those fans who keep wishing for new material, sometimes for an older classic band, that doesnt always produce a satisfying result either. And apparantly these reissues make money for bands, because so many of them are guilty of it putting them out. So 3 1/2 stars for this issue, I just rounded it off and gave it 4.
