While the original LP had a wonderful selection of live material of Kansas at their height, those of us who attended Kansas concerts from the 1976-1978 era have always been somewhat disappointed by the recorded offerings of Two for the Show as limited by previous formats - first in LP versions and then by CD. It would have been great if Two for the Show were a 3-LP release (Three for the Show), but alas - it never happened. This re-mastered and extended version, however, begins to capture the beauty, power, and craft of a Kansas concert when the classic lineup was at their full power. Kanas live during this era was simply amazing, and the depth and breath of their catalogue in this version has not been clipped by format limits. This particularly version is highly recommended, and since the musicianship of Kansas is always so incredibly high you can listen to it carefully and enjoy all the nuances and flourishes that only a live performance can offer. The recording quality is likewise of high quality, so i''d recommend listening to it at least once with a quality set of headphones. Each of these musicians are masters of their craft, their songs are highly crafted and complex, and this is set of performances captures Kansas at their absolute peak.

This amazing recording is proof positive of the brilliance of this band. Kansas was such a powerful force, and made me truly love music as a kid. Listening to this now makes me realize how much I couldn''t hear back then. By that I mean, then I only listened for the melodies, and the lyrics. I truly can HEAR the music now. The bottom end of Dave Hope''s bass, Robbie''s violin, and the rythmic cacaphony of Phil Eharts drums. I am transported back to my youth listening to this, and I cannot remove it from my player. Unfortunately Steve Walsh and Kerry Livgren had philisophical differences that led to their very short life, at the moment they had the world in their hands. Steve went no where with his band, and Kerry did his soul searching with God, and not much happened on their reunion. But this album is a way for all who love these golden years of their heyday to relive the powerful music that KANSAS gave us. And as much as I love this album, and it will clearly stay as one of the greatest live albums ever created, the one live album it cannot surpass is THE ALLMAN BROTHERS AT FILLMORE EAST. That my friends is the greatest live album of all time. There is nothing wrong with this being second to them.

This is probably one of the top 10 LIVE albums of all time. Right up there with Springsteen’s 5 record live set, Skynards Two From the Road Frampton s Frampton Comes Alive and Neil Young’s Live Rust. This band was amazing live and so many of their songs were better than the ones that got played on the radio Dust In The WInd and Point of No Return. If you are a Kansas fan this is a must have if not this is the album to try.

What an incredible collection of Kansas live material at their peak of creativity and popularity! I know there will be many who agree that this is the Kansas live album we''ve all been waiting for.

This re-issue with bonus material must be near the top of anyone''s list of live recordings. Amazing band! Amazing performances of blindingly complicated and over-the-top songs. The bonus material shows the band in a much truer light as a much heavier band than they''ve been portrayed by their more commercial sounding material.

I marvel at what an incredible album this could have been if most if not all of this material was included in its proper order, without edits! Also, I welcome anyone to comment who may be able to help me reconstruct the order of the songs as they might have occurred at the time, notwithstanding the obvious selection of different songs on different nights.

I am, however, perplexed as to why it took 30 years for some moronic record company jackasses to release all this extra material? Had it been done years earlier it might have re-ignited the band''s career when they needed it most. I now discover that much of this, their best, material was recorded live in 1978 at the same time as "Two for the Show." So, why take 30 years to release this amazing music? Secondly, what record co. jerk decided to choose the songs that made it on to the original "Two for the Show" album and edit things out like "The Spider" intro into "Portrait?" Who decided not to include "Child of Innocence" or "Belexes" in lieu of something like "Closet Chronicles" (no offense) or even the guitar and piano solos, notwithstanding the display of musicianship involved?

I,like many, discovered Kansas with Carry On Wayward Son and bought Leftoverture and Point of Know Return at the same time. I got Two for the Show much later. After seeing them for the first time in the early ''80''s I started buying up the earlier catalog. I feel that the first three albums possibly outshine the later ones in some ways, despite their lack of commercial success. This CD represents both sides of the band, the heavy sounding band from the first three albums and the more commercial sounding band from Leftoverture and Point of Know Return.

It''s a great collection! Buy it, you won''t regret it.

Disc one. The hair stood up on my arms, tingling, as I listened to the restored version of this masterpiece. A lot of memories tied up with this band and this album, all came flooding back as I listened, bewitched.

Disc two, has stuff I''ve never heard live before, musicianship on display.

I have this on tape (how I originally enjoyed it decades ago) and on the edited "Nice Price" CD (don''t bother with it) and this one.

I say this is what a live album should be because it takes a band that''s highly produced and engineered in the studio and shows how they accomplish the live presentation of the songs without the benefits of that production. Compared to some live albums, which are essentially note-for-note the same as the studio versions (with crowd noise and weaker vocals), this is so interesting to me because the arrangements and/or instrumentation of the songs differ by necessity. You can''t overdub violins on stage, so you double with a synth. If that synth is doubling the violin, then it can''t play its normal part, so that''s played by the Hammond. And so on. It feels live! And there were no overdubs to make it sound perfect.

It captures a point in time -- Kansas when they ruled the world, for however brief a time that might have been. You hear Ehart''s rushed eighth notes on Song for America and Wayward Son, which only got worse over time. You hear hints that, even then, Steve Walsh''s voice was beginning its eventual deterioration; and yet when he sings in his range, it''s one of the best rock voices ever.

There''s no reason for me to knock off one star for my perfectionist tendencies...I''d like the songs re-ordered in the true order they were played, with more continuity and no fade-outs between songs (Spider is Disc 2, Track 7; Portrait is Disc 1, Track 5) for instance. Well, that''s probably my only wish anyway. And I simply ripped the discs into iTunes and re-ordered them myself. :-)

So it rates a 5.5 stars for me. Live album perfection, pretty much.

"Two for the Show" remastered is now the definitive Kansas album to get. Yes, it''s live but this is the essence of the band. Six great musicians who were so much more together live on stage. What passion, musicality, power and emotion. This has everything from the hits like "Dust in the wind" and "Carry on wayward son" to progressive epics that show what six people interchanging from double keyboards to double guitar attack with soaring violin and harmony vocals can do. Their emotional epics are more melodically classical than any of their European prog counterparts of that time, and they certainly knew how to rock harder.

In 1978 this was an outstanding live record and 30 plus years later it not only has stood the test of time but is MUCH better. This edition has another 11 live remastered tracks added on a second CD. These are no fillers - these are phenomenal tracks that I can''t believe were excluded initially.

Have a look at my customer image that shows the inner sleeve of the new cool digipak plus a picture from the great booklet. This is no rerelease just to increase income - no, this is part of their legacy, an extended creative effort that offers so much more than the double LP and single CD version of the 90s.

Wow, the 11 new tracks - a whole added album of 75 minutes. These tracks seem to breathe more than the first CD. By that I mean there seems more spacious musical introductions and exploration. Clearly this is why they couldn''t be included initially on an already double LP record.

The opening track of the ''new'' material, "Hopelessly human" contains all the elements that instantly let you know this is the mighty Kansas in full flight. Long orchestrations of interwoven musical motifs and changing tempos - from ballad gentle vocals over piano to full pipe organ, monstrous drum fills with melodic lead guitar all finally culminating with anthem like bells. This is hair raising stuff!

The fresh stereo mix makes it easy to hear how wonderfully Rich Williams and Kerry interwined their guitar leads as well as showing the contrasting keyboard sounds from pipe organ to piano of Walsh and Livgren. Listen to the crunch surprise opening start of "Child of innocence" - makes ZZ Top seem tame. Indeed this track is a wonderful example of displaying the strengths of this band as the dual vocals of Steinhardt and Steve Walsh create the tight harmony which includes a falsetto harmony from Walsh,I think, that I''ve never heard before.

There are many other outstanding tracks including, "Closet Chronicles" and "Miracles out of nowhere". Indeed there is not one filler track here. I bought this album from Amazon last week and have been playing it ever since. (That means my other new purchases - new Dream Theater, SACD Pink Floyd Dark Side of the moon and Yellowjackets have been ejected for a while)

This double live CD will take you on an exciting journey through their first and greatest five albums with more passion and interaction than the studio versions. For faithful Kansas rockers I trust you purchased this long ago, unlike me. If not don''t hesitate.

Die Überschrift bezieht sich darauf, dass Kansas zum Zeitpunkt dieses Albums nur starke bis bärenstarke Alben hervorgebracht hatten. Danach kam mit "Monolith" noch ein gutes Album raus, danach wurden die Alben aber deutlich schwächer, da die Musik sich weg vom Progressive Rock hin zu mehr kommerzieller Musik bewegte. Alle, die die alte Ausgabe von "Two For The Show" besitzen, sei gesagt, dass sich die Anschaffung der 30th Anniversary Edition in mehrfacher Hinsicht lohnt: Zum einen ist der Klang der CD''s um Längen besser, zum anderen gibt es über 60 Minuten mehr Musik zu hören**, so ist auch der geniale Track "Closet Chronicles", der noch auf der Doppel LP vertreten war, wieder auf der Neuauflage vertreten. **Diese Edition ist eine Doppel CD und nicht wie die Erstauflage eine 1fach CD. Zur Musik selber: Die Live Fassungen der Songs sind wesentlich roher, energetischer als die Studio Fassungen. Dazu versprüht die Band eine ungeheure Spielfreude. Die Songauswahl ist auch gelungen, natürlich sind die beiden Hits "Dust In The Wind" (in einer Akustik Version) und "Carry On You Wayward Son" vertreten, aber auch die komplexen Klassiker "Song For America", "Icarus", Journey From Mariabronn", "Magnum Opus" (mit 11:15 Minuten auch deutlich länger als die Studiofassung), "Hopelessly Human" (mit 8:42 Minuten auch länger) sowie das schon genannte "Closet Chronicles" und "Cheyenne Anthem". Hinzu kommt das Steve Walsh noch wie ein junger Gott singt und Keyboards und Gitarren sich genug Raum geben und Phil Ehart zeigt, dass er ein Top Drummer ist. Das Ganze wird durch die Geige abgerundet. Die Live Atmosphäre ist sehr intensiv, was auch daran liegt, dass die Band darauf verzichtete, die Live Aufnahmen im Studio zu bearbeiten, was leider sehr oft gemacht wird. Fazit: "Two For The Show" kann ich jedem (Progressive) Rock Fan nur empfehlen!!

It must be said, although Kansas is a good band with strong songs at the time, in the seventies, their live version of those songs is by far greater than on the studio-albums. I wonder how they could play so well together in a band with six different musicians, at least three of them playing multi kinds of instruments (i.e. vocals and keyboards, guitar and keyboards, violin/vocals/percussion, acoustic and electric guitars) Anyway, good music never lets you down, not the least with Kansas as a formidable live-act. I''ve seen them myself at the end of the seventies somewhere in Germany in this original line-up. Mindblowing.

As for the violin playing of Roddy Steinhardt, it rivals anything by Electric Light Orchestra or Curved Air, for example Air Conditioning.
