Sail On: The 30th Anniversary Collection is the fifth compilation from the band Kansas, originally released in 2004. Along with two CDs that include tracks from each one of the band's studio albums, the compilation also includes a 16-track companion DVD which features numerous television appearances, videos, and live recordings. The first two words of the title come from a lyric to the band's 1975 song "Icarus (Borne On Wings of Steel)", which is included in the collection.
