Production Analysis of Carry On Wayward Son

Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son” opens with a cappella vocals, sung by Steve Walsh and Robby Steinhardt. Followed by that is a typical rock band instrumentation: drums, two electric guitars, and bass guitar, along with a Hammond Organ and a piano. I tried finding out specifics on the guitars, and came across a forum that discussed the possible exact instrumentation. There was a lot of conversing about Gibsons (possibly a Gibson L6S) and Les Pauls and Strats. As for effects, there is mention of possible Boss EQ and Marshall amps. The producers were Jeff Glixman and Kansas and the engineer was Bill Evans
