Description

Super Deluxe Box Set featuring 103 Total Tracks (75 Previously Unreleased) including Original Album Newly Remastered, Demos/Rarities/Outtakes, and Soundboard Live Recordings from 82/83 Tour Plus Blu-Ray Audio Disc and 80-Page Book

1982's Creatures of the Night served as Kiss' last for longtime home Casablanca Records and was dedicated to the label's founder and early supporter Neil Bogart who passed away during the recording of the album. The underrated 9-song set marked the band's return to unabashed heavy rock and saw the emergence of second lead guitarist Vinnie Vincent even though his work was initially still credited to Ace Frehley who departed the band after the album's release. Featuring the anthemic singles "I Love It Loud," "Killer" and "Creatures of the Night."

The Creatures Of The Night: 40th Anniversary Super Deluxe box set boasts 103 total tracks with 75 tracks being previously unreleased. Newly remastered, the original album has never sounded better. CDs 2 and 3 feature 34 demos, rarities and outtakes including unreleased gems like "Deadly Weapon (Penny Lane Demo)," "Not For The Innocent (Demo)" and "Betrayed (Outtake)." CDs 4 and 5 highlight 26 incredible, soundboard live recordings from the Creatures ‘82/'83 Tour and 7 super rare tour sound effects, all recorded and archived by the Creatures Tour sound engineer Harry Witz. The accompanying Blu-ray Audio disc showcases a first-ever Atmos and 5.1 surround mix plus the high-resolution newly remastered 1982 stereo mix of the original album.

The Super Deluxe set is rounded out with an 80-page hardcover book with extensive liner notes by Ken Sharp and a monstrous amount of unreleased photos and imagery.
