KANSAs - Ultimate Kansas

Advantages: Opportunity to pick up on classic band and musical style from yesteryear
Disadvantages: None; you've nothing to lose.

Great collection; constantly over-looked, Kansas were masters of prog symphonic American rock in the mid/late seventies, early eighties. They were an exceptional force who served up unique theatre through classically inspired and structured tunes. T ...

Advantages: Some all time classics songs

The Platinum Collection from Genesis is a three CD boxed set of all their best songs. It's really the story of Genesis told backwards. The third CD ends with their first ever release and the first CD begins with their last hit before they stopped record ...
