The Kansas Boxed Set is the third compilation from the band Kansas. It was originally released in 1994, and was the band's first boxed set overview of their career, emphasizing only their progressive rock era which was bracketed by the albums Kansas in 1974 and Audio-Visions in 1980. It also includes the new track "Wheels". The release was supervised by all the original band members, unlike the first release of The Best of Kansas in 1984.
