KLAATU  "hope"  vinyl, 1977:

picked this up at a second hand record store some time ago...
I was curious as to what it is/was after a lot of commentary on and off the forum over the years...
a concept album/rock opera of sorts about "the sole survivor of an arrogant race of beings who warns
space travellers of hazards on his last days of living"...
some prog sounds, some orchestral sounds, some orchestral rock, a couple of instrumentals...
hearing Beatles, Moody Blues, Queen, George Harrison and Jeff Lynne influences throughout this one...
a great album IMO....

hearing just about all of the above influences in this epic track:

hearing the George Harrison/Jeff Lynne influence in this track:

^As I'm sure I've mentioned more than once before, I have a soft spot for that album, and 3:47 EST. Two of the first prog type records I heard. 

I've been listening to The Best of Kansas. A fab compilation IMHO.

I could listen to "Dust in the Wind" on repeat for a while - and sometimes do! The artwork for the single - tying in with the Point of Know Return album cover ...
