That's all the info I got and that little bit was from Kansas' official site. You'd think there'd be more detail. :roll:

Fair enough... It may just be a straight remaster then.

I was hoping that they would release this as a two-disc version, since the original Kirshner/CBS CD version was missing Closet Chronicles due to space restrictions (single CD). The original was a double LP.

I had this one on vinyl years ago... but it's now MIA (along with about 350 of its friends :?). Long story.

My older step-brother was my big influence musically in my pre-teens. He'd bring me all kinds of stuff I had never heard before when he came to visit. In fact, he turned me on to Kansas (to stay somewhat on-topic :wink:).

Well, he used to tape his LPs and then give me the albums... before long, he had given me hundreds of albums. All played exactly once. Of course, even then I took extremely good care of them.

On one visit years later... he asked is he could take them back to re-tape them because his cassette cases had been stolen out of his truck. Of course, I said, "No problem."

About three weeks later, my mother and step-father separated... and I have never seen my step-brother since. :?

I miss him too. He was a great guy, even though he got me into all kinds of trouble over the years. :lol:

Nope.

I had an older step-sister... and a younger half-sister and brother as well. I lost touch with just about all of my family on both sides when I joined the military.

My family was always spread around NY geographically... and not particularly close. My mother's side of the family all lived in NYC and Long Island, so we didn't see them very often anyway. My step-father's side of the family was the only ones I ever really spent any time with as a teen... and a few years after the divorce, my step-father moved to Florida. I don't really know what happened to any of them, or my aunt and uncle after that.

My mother was the main tie between us and the rest of my family. When she died, her address book and the vast majority of the family information was destroyed in the fire. I have no idea how to contact any of them at this point... and haven't seen another member of my family in better than 20 years, except for my half-sister. I saw her once in upstate NY about 10 years ago, but I was unable to reach her after that.

I have an uncle on my mother's side that was a NYC transit cop. I believe he was still a cop during the 9/11 attacks. To be honest, I'm not even 100% sure he survived. :(

I found out one of those shows with Styx & Foreigner is coming to Va. Beach. I might have to make the trip... but mostly for Kansas. 8)

KANSAS TO HEADLINE CONCERTS THROUGHOUT UNITED STATES, JOINED BY KING’S X AND THAT 1 GUY, PREMIUM TICKET OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE



After wrapping the immensely popular KANSAS Collegiate Symphony Tour of Spring 2012, America’s greatest progressive rock band, KANSAS, is transitioning to a more traditional tour approach for the fall. Without missing a beat, the band will be headlining shows in cities throughout the United States from September to November.



Original member and guitar virtuoso, Richard Williams, had this to say about the fall tour, “We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with King’s X. They're a great band and a force to be reckoned with. It's a tour like this that allows us to dig a little bit deeper into our catalogue and play a few songs that KANSAS fans haven't heard for a while. It's gonna be a lot of fun!”



On most dates, fellow rockers King’s X will support KANSAS on the tour. dUg Pinick stated, “I've been a huge KANSAS fan since the beginning. I remember sitting on the floor with my friends listening to the just released record "Song for America"...fast forward years later, King's X is going on tour with them!! It is an honor to be doing shows with them. This is gonna rock!!” King’s X is also comprised of drummer Jerry Gaskill and lead guitarist Ty Tabor. This tour will mark the first major tour for King’s X since Gaskill’s remarkable recovery from a major heart attack earlier this year.



On select dates the one-man band, That 1 Guy, Mike Silverman, will open the show.



For the first time ever, KANSAS is partnering with Music One Live to offer a limited number of Premium and VIP ticket packages, as well as exclusive merchandise, for most shows. These exciting packages, available for purchase directly from KANSAS’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/kansasband), will offer fans the very best seats in the house. The VIP ticket packages will also provide a limited number of fans a meet and greet photo opportunity with KANSAS. Fans are also encouraged to regularly stay connected with the band’s Facebook page for concert presale information.



With their self-titled first album released in 1974, KANSAS went on to become one of the decade’s most popular rock acts – issuing classic rock albums such as 1976’s ‘Leftoverture’ and 1977’s ‘Point of Know Return,’ along with the hit singles “Carry on Wayward Son” and “Dust In the Wind,” and “Point of Know Return.” The band – which in addition to Williams, is comprised of drummer Phil Ehart, singer/keyboardist Steve Walsh, bassist Billy Greer, and violinist David Ragsdale – continue to tour in front of large and enthusiastic audiences and to this day remain a fixture on classic rock radio.



Confirmed tour dates and venues with more to be added. Tickets on sale June 15, 2012 unless otherwise noted.



September 13, 2012 – New York, NY (Best Buy Theater)

September 14, 2012 – Bethlehem, PA (Sands Bethlehem Events Center)

September 15, 2012 – Atlantic City, NJ (Borgata Spa & Resort - Music Box)

September 21, 2012 – St. Charles, IL (Arcadia Theater)* **

September 22, 2012 – Minneapolis, MN (The Myth)** ***



October 5, 2012 – Salina, KS (Steifel Theatre for Performing Arts)*

October 6, 2012 – Kansas City, MO (Uptown Theatre)

October 12, 2012 – Montgomery, AL (Alabama National Fair)***

October 14, 2012 – Dallas, TX (State Fair of Texas)** ***

October 19, 2012 – Little Rock, AR (Arkansas State Fair)
