February 5, 2013

Check out the New Release list

KISS...Double Platinum  (1978)
By this time in 1978 Kiss had become possibly the biggest band of the mid 70's.  They had released 6 studio albums and 2 live albums in only 4 years time.  Now on the plate was a movie and 4 solo albums to be released in 1978.  Casablanca Records done a very smart move with this release, "Double Platinum", which is a collection of tracks from those 6 studio albums, slightly remixed with a new recording of 'Strutter'.  It's 2 albums of some of their better material and is a great listen.  It is highly recommended
