Product Description

Time to rock and roll all nite! Presenting the three classic Kiss Alive! albums, Alive 1975, Alive II 1977 and Alive III 1993, newly remastered in one ultimate boxed set. Also includes The Millennium Concert (New Year's Eve 1999/2000) on CD for the first time ever!

Amazon.com

There is no shortage of Kiss collections out there, but, as they used to say before Paul, Gene, Ace, and Peter took the stage, "You wanted the best and you got the best!" Spanning four discs, Alive! 1975-2000 makes a great time capsule for Kiss Army completists, packed with a quarter-century of pictures and band reminiscences. And then there's the music. Remastered and packaged together for the first time, the immortal hard-rock one-two punch of Alive! and Alive II together with 1993's makeup-free Alive III showcase the legendary band in their element: driving audiences wild with their thunderous riffs, bombastic ballads, and shameless showmanship. Previously unreleased, Alive: The Millennium Concert captures the reunited and remasked original lineup at the New Year's Eve 1999 stop on what appears to be a never-ending farewell tour. It's safe to say the definitive live Kiss experience is captured here--from Paul Stanley's barefaced buttering-up of the crowd ("This song is dedicated to you, 'cause this song is about people who know what rock 'n' roll is about") to Peter Criss's nearly-epic "God of Thunder" drum solo, and four, count 'em, four, versions of "Rock and Roll All Nite." Kiss was never a band likely to be accused of understatement, and Alive! 1975-2000 is an appropriately exalted celebration of their excess and excellence. --Ben Heege

Format: Audio CD
THE BAND: Alive!, Alive II, Millennium Concert: Paul Stanley (vocals, guitar), Gene Simmons (vocals, bass), Ace Frehley (guitar, vocals), Peter Criss (drums, vocals). Alive III (only): Paul Stanley (vocals, guitar), Gene Simmons (vocals, bass), Bruce Kulick (guitar, vocals), Eric Singer (drums, vocals).

THE DISCS: (2006) 4 discs containing 69 tracks and lasting over 291 minutes. Disc-1 ("Alive!" 1975) at 77+ minutes; Disc-2 ("Alive II" 1977) at 74+ minutes; Disc-3 ("Alive III" 1993) at 73+ minutes; Disc-4 ("The Millennium Concert" 1999) at 66+ minutes. The case is a 5-side cardboard foldout. Included with the discs is an extensive 72-page booklet containing numerous band photos (many unreleased), band members, song titles/credits, excerpts from band interviews, and all original artwork from Alive I - III. Digitally remastered sound. Label - Mercury.

COMMENTS: "Alive!" is always going be the album by which all Kiss records should be judged. It stands on its own - a true 'live' rock classic. "Alive II" is 3-sides live and 1-side studio recording... good, but not a classic in my book. "Alive III", in my opinion, is probably their 3rd best 'live' album behind their "MTV Unplugged" release which is not featured here (their "Alive IV - Australian Symphony" album isn't either). "Millennium"" is good and exciting to hear - but after several listens, maybe you'll feel the same way I do now... that it's cool for us fans to have, but it's easy to recognize the original four's playing is beginning to slip. In some songs, Peter Criss' beat is fast and then slow; Ace's guitar solo's are familiar, but they are at times sloppy; and Paul's singing is sometimes to fast, while other times he's trying to catch up.

I was hesitant to purchase this box set since I already own the first three "Alive" albums on cd (not to mention the first 2 on vinyl). I decided to make the purchase based on the inclusion of the Millennium Concert, the great price and having all the albums in the same place. I do not believe "Alive III" was ever remastered, so the sound improvement here is very noticeable. What pleasantly surprised me was the better sound on "Alive I & II". I did a side by side with "Alive! Box Set" cds and the 2 disc remastered sets of "Alive I & II". I found these new recordings to sound clearer, brighter, louder (when played at the same volume level), and to have more concert hall ambiance and overall punch when compared to the 2 disc "remastered" versions. The differences I heard immediately were Criss's drums & Gene's bass on the "Alive!" album giving my car subwoofer a much better workout. While the sound improvement on these first two "Alive!" albums might seem like a slight "tweak" to some, the ears of dedicated KISS fans will really appreciate the improvement.

So, for the music fan who does not own any Kiss albums, shame on you! This is a great place to start; four great live cds in one collection at a very reasonable price. For any KISS fan wondering if this set is worth the money, ask yourself one question, "Do you want the best?" I thought so....add to cart ASAP.

Yes, I must Admit I did buy it for the so Called Millennium Concert. I am Happy that they did release some of that concert: anyone with tapes of that concert knows they could quite easily have done two discs of the Millennium concert, since the entire show was fully recorded, so why only one song from Ace, and no solo? Anyway, I am happy for the Bits they gave on disc.
The Alive 1,2 and 3 are great discs, sounding superb in 5.1 systems; much improved. I must admit I did think that Gene ( or Someone, :-) redid the Bass work for the Live 1 and 2, but I guess with a Remaster that fixes all sounds.
Each of the discs reprises the Packaging of the original albums, as well as the disc bed, which has a reprise of the cover shots. The Booklet tops the memorable tour of the KISS past.
It really does bring home that KISS has material that is better than Good. Ace has said that the Reunion tour was DAT recorded. With a great selection of other songs, why can't they release more. Anyways, I more than Love what I got. Its a Great Buy, and I am more than happy with the great sound
It should be interesting to see if the remasters get "Re-Mastered" as in after DESTROYER resurrected, will there be more items re-done, like the 4 disc set which has the packing case. Should be great to see if this collection is put into 5.1, since it is do-able. but time and money will tell.

I had no intention of picking this up, but simply couldn't resist after hearing that Best Buy was selling it for $20. I knew at that point that the 'bonus tracks' supposedly found on the Best Buy version were nowhere to be found, but I figured that would have to be rectified sooner or later (Gene and Paul are currently working with Universal about fixing that mess). Let me just say I am really glad I picked this up.

The packaging is great. The box folds out much like a DVD set, and it comes with a nice booklet with some cool photos and liner notes from everyone involved in these live recordings. The Millenium Concert sounds AWESOME. I really was impressed by the sound quality; the guitars are thick but not overbearing and all other instruments/vocals sound great. It's nice to have a live CD from the reunion line-up. Alive 1 - 3 also sound great - the remastering here takes nothing away, and only makes these classic recordings sound better.

As far as the whiners complaining that "Alive IV" isn't on this set, well, they must be the same people who blame KISS for all these re-releases. Alive IV was on a different label than the other 'Alive' albums, so it only makes sense they are not included in this box set (you do have to own the rights to release something kids). Even I admit it would have been cool if it was included, but I understand why it isn't. Just like I understand that record companies put out compilations and re-releases, more often than not without the bands input or approval.

After picking up KISSOLOGY and seeing what a great live band they really were, I'm really glad I have these live CDs as part of my collection. Get it at the right price and you can't go wrong. Pick it up at Best Buy, keep the receipt, and wait to hear how we can all get '2000 Man' and 'God of Thunder' to add to this great collection.
