The Wall

Leftoverture is the fourth studio album by American rock band Kansas, released in 1976. The album was reissued in remastered format on CD in 2001, and later reissued as Playlist: Leftoverture, although "Magnum Opus" was replaced with "Child of Innocence" from Masque.

Steve Walsh began to experience writer's block prior to the recording, and his contribution to the album would ultimately be limited to co-authoring three songs. It fell on Kerry Livgren to fill the void. The new compositions retained much of the classically inspired complexity of Livgren's previous work. Kansas recorded the album at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana. The Studio in the Country was so named because, as Kerry Livgren described on In the Studio with Redbeard in the episode spotlighting Leftoverture that "It was in the middle of a swamp. We'd walk out of the studio and there would be gators in front of the studio, mosquitos the size of B-52s and at times armadillos would run into the control room, laughing."

Leftoverture begins with the hit single "Carry On Wayward Son". Kerry Livgren wrote the song as a sequel to the final song, "The Pinnacle", from the previous album, Masque (1975).

The album's title, Leftoverture, is a portmanteau word.

Good catch... when I saw the title I wasn't sure if you were going to Pink Floyd or our Southern border... good catch.

If you didnt know any better you would think Livgren was writing a lot of these songs for a girl, but in fact many of his tunes reflect his Christian faith.
