Newly Remastered from Ultra-High-Definition Direct Stream Digital Transfers from Original Analog Tapes and Pressed on 180g LP at QRP
Vinyl Reissues of Band's Entire Catalog Commemorate Group's 40th Anniversary and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction
This year marks the 40th anniversary of rock and roll giants Kiss and, in true Kiss fashion, the band plan to make 2014 the biggest and loudest, non-stop rock and roll party of the century. Millions of people around the world originally discovered Kiss when they brought home an album and put it on their turntable for the first time. Those original Kiss albums are now remastered and will be available on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
Kiss was the first signing to Neil Bogart’s Casablanca Records in 1973, offering them a contract on the spot after seeing them perform in New York City. Their self-titled debut would propel the band to the top of the rock and roll hierarchy where they have reigned for the past four decades, selling over 100 million albums worldwide. Kiss will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April 2014, proof of the unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the Kiss Army to the “Hottest Band in the World.”
The record that forever established Kiss
as classic rock legends, Alive!
also ushered in the era of the live album. Recorded in Michigan, New Jersey, Iowa, and Ohio on Kiss'
1975 Dressed to Kill tour, the double-record set is chock full of explosions, biting guitar solos, onstage banter, and hungry, go-for-broke performances of hard-rock staples such as "Rock And Roll All Nite," "Deuce," "Strutter" and "Firehouse." The band plays as if their career depended on it, and at the time, it did. Alive
! was released as a make-or-break statement for the Kiss
and its label, Casablanca. The rest is history as it has gone down as one of the best live albums of all-time and arguably the band's finest offering!
