KANSAS | MASQUE (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
In 1975, superstars Kansas delivered one of the nest albums in their time honored and much loved classic rock catalog with their third smash Masque. Featuring the classic line-up of Steve Walsh on keys and lead vocals, Phil Ehart on drums, Kerry Livgren playing the lead guitar, Robby Steinhardt on violin and lead vocals and Dave Hope on bass, the Masque album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning four decades.
With hard rockers like Two Cents Worth and It Takes A Woman’s Love and the brilliant prog- rock classic The Pinnacle, the Masque album would be the transitional masterwork which would soon carry them into their arena rock classics Leftoverture (Friday Music #34224) and Point Of Know Return (Friday Music #34929).
Dig deeper into the grooves and there you find even more prog-rock champions like the masterful Icarus and the powerful rocker Mysteries and Mayhem, making their third album Masque the home run it is and will forever be!
Friday Music is no stranger to the stunning recordings of Kansas. Therefore it is with much excitement to announce another installment in the Kansas/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their legendary masterpiece Masque. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering and pressed at RTI, this stunning LP was long overdue for the audiophile vinyl domain.
In honor of Kansas 40th Year Anniversary, we are offering for a very limited time a first time gatefold cover, featuring the original graphics, lyrics and of course the ve star mastering you would expect from Friday Music. We believe this wonderful new audiophile release of Masque will become one of the most anticipated prog-rock releases of the New Year!
