Kansas - Thinking man's rock. Great prog-rock music backed by intellectually and spiritually challenging themes. Kerry Livgren wrote not one, but TWO of the most iconic songs of the 70's -Carry On Wayward Son & Dust in the Wind. Timeless.
Kerry Livgren, Seeds of Change. This was, lead guitarist of Kansas, Kerry Livgren's solo Christian album, and, while he had dealt with spiritual issues in his songs with Kansas, this was a straight affirmation of his Christian conversion. A lot of talent contributed to the album, along with Ronnie James Dio singing lead on two of the best tracks.
