From kerrylives, member who provided the 1976 Recording.

Well this is pretty rare I guess, an excellent FM broadcast of Kansas during their Masque tour. I've never seen this one on any trade list, neither have I heard anybody mention it nor was I able to retrieve any information about it on the internet. This show comes from a silver CD I obtained some years ago called "Kansas - A Tour Digest 1976". Besides this show it has the 1976-01-25 Chicago show on a seperate disc. I'm almost certain both shows are incomplete since they clock in just over 1 hour.

Like I mentioned the quality of this one is excellent, much better than the versions of that other broadcast from the same era; the well known 1975-12-02 Pittsburgh show. According to Robby himself this was broadcasted on WMMR and it's almost perfect, having only a couple of minor glitches. I've used Sound Forge only to edit out the 10 seconds of dead air between All The World and Bringing It Back and do a quick fade out at the end of the last song since it ended abruptly*.

*UPDATE: Bringing It Back\Can I Tell You provided in it's entirety by Robert Schuman

What else can I say? This is some kick ass raw & early era Kansas material (which simply is the best live music ever imho) so enjoy and spread it around I'd say.
