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.”
1979's Dynasty not only closed out the '70s for Kiss, but also marks the first time the original lineup - Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss - didn't all play on the entire album. Session drummer Anton Fig replaced Criss, who due to injuries sustained in a car accident, only appears on the track "Dirty Livin" and eventually left the band following 1980's Unmasked. Produced by Vini Poncia, Dynasty is famous for its worldwide top-ten smash hit, "I Was Made For Lovin' You," which combines elements of the Kiss sound with disco and was the group's first collaboration with songwriter Desmond Child.
