On the occasion of their 50th anniversary as a band, Kansas celebrates their auspicious career with the release of “Another Fork In The Road – 50 Years Of Kansas”. Featuring carefully-selected songs from every single Kansas album over three discs, “Another Fork In The Road” also includes a new version of ‘Can I Tell You’. Originally recorded and released on their 1974 debut, the song is updated by the current lineup, providing a full-circle perspective on the band’s long and continuing history.

“The song ‘Can I Tell You’ may not have been our biggest ‘hit,’ but it is one of the most important songs in the career of the band KANSAS.” says original member and guitarist Richard Williams. “‘Can I Tell You’ was the first song on the demo reel we sent to Don Kirshner. Hearing that demo is what led to KANSAS getting a record deal. It felt appropriate, after fifty years, to come full circle and record it with the current lineup.”

Phil Ehart comments: “We are really honored by the commitment that InsideOut Music has put into “Another Fork in the Road.” This is far more than just another greatest hits album. “Another Fork in the Road.” is an in-depth representation of the evolving and winding musical journey of the band KANSAS that’s been 50 years in the making.”

This 3-CD set also displays a variety of memorabilia spanning five decades, contributed by Kansas super-fans, plus an essay that includes recollections from all current band members, as well as long-time producer Jeff Glixman and onetime manager Budd Carr.
