A career-spanning retrospective and behind-the-scenes look at the venerable rock outfit, the Sony Legacy-issued Miracles Out of Nowhere celebrates Kansas' 40th anniversary with both a feature-film and a best-of collection. The film, directed by Charley Randozzo, features interviews with famous fans like Brian May and Garth Brooks, as well as stories and anecdotes from the band, who reconvened in Topeka, Kansas to be interviewed for the documentary. The audio compilation features the hits along with some deep cuts, and is interspersed with audio extracts from the film. ~ James Christopher Monger
