Offered for sale is a scarce picture disc pressing of the 1977 LP, Point of Know Return by Kansas, issued as a promotional item.
About this copy: This copy of Point of Know Return is a limited edition picture disc, released in 1978 as a promotional item, though not marked as such.
The cover is M-, with trace wear at the corners. The picture disc is M- and clearly has had little, if any, play.
A nice copy of a great-looking picture disc. Pretty good album, too.
Background: The 1977 LP, Point of Know Return was the fifth studio album by the band, and is Kansas’ best-selling LP, containing the hit “Dust in the Wind.” The album reached #4 on the U.S. album charts and was certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.
This is the definitive Kansas recording and includes their most famous tune, “Dust in the Wind.” The band is in peak form and also churned out the single “Point of Know Return,” which is still played daily on classic rock stations. While their pop-oriented approach and standard rock guitar sound helped define the classic rock sound of the ’70s, careful listening reveals that this band’s talent goes beyond colleagues such as Bachman-Turner Overdrive and Boston. Yet despite the minor inconsistencies and a dated sound, their interplay and superior musicianship make this both an essential classic rock and progressive rock recording.
A few copies of the album were pressed as picture discs and issued in a die-cut cover. While these were not marked in any way as promotional items, they were, in fact, sent out as promotional items only and were never offered for sale to the public.
The same image appears on both sides of the disc.
