KANSAS WERE one of the most successful American rock bands during the 1970’s. Their carefully constructed brand of progressive rock managed to not only appeal to album buyers but to also deliver hit singles (‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and ‘Dust In The Wind’). Front man Steve Walsh provided unique appeal, lifting melodies up into the stratosphere and delivering class-A performances night after night. Inevitably Kansas’s success led to some its members looking for further opportunities and, following a solo album from guitarist Kerry Livgren, vocalist Steve Walsh was the second member to branch out and record an album of his own. Taking his cue from their most successful record ‘Point Of Know Return’, the emphasis was on shorter more accessible tracks but was still imbued with supreme instrumental agility and, of course, his signature vocal. Indeed, the Kansas connection was still very much in evidence, not only in the songs but also in the studio, where several members of the band helped out (Kerry Livgren, Phil Ehart and Rich Williams) as well as members of Dixie Dreggs, including guitarist Steve Morse who, ironically, went on to join Kansas in 1986.
Sadly, due to Kansas’s punishing work schedule Walsh’s ‘Schemer Dreamer’ – originally released in 1980 – despite its universally acclaimed musical content never received the exposure it so richly deserved. Time indeed to revisit and be amazed. This is a Special Limited Collector’s Edition with 24 BIT audio remastering. It is packaged with a 12 page full colour booklet, 3,000 word essay, full lyrics, enhanced artwork, memorabilia and rare photos
