Editorial Reviews

Product Description

What band stands right behind the Beatles in the number of gold records earned? That's right: it's KISS. And if that's not evidence enough, the 94 tracks on this boxed set firmly establish that, behind all the face paint, dry ice smoke and confetti showers, they were a great rock 'n' roll band. Along with classics like Shout It Out Loud; Detroit Rock City; Rock and Roll All Nite; Cold Gin; Beth; Love Gun , and Black Diamond are a full 30 previously unreleased band and solo demos (of such faves as Deuce and Strutter ), outtakes and live recordings, plus a 120-page booklet with track-by-track commentary by KISS members, rare photos and biographical essay. Six hours of digitally remastered music enough to feed the KISS army!

Set aside the makeup, pyrotechnics, and coffin sales, and all that's left of "the hottest band in the world" is the music. Fortunately, in the case of Kiss, the music is their strongest suit. This five-CD box set blends previously released recordings, demos, and unreleased live material. Rarities come in large part from the band's halcyon makeup period and include unheard songs from an assortment of demos. Among the curios are the Wicked Lester versions of "She" and "Love Her All I Can," replete with horn kicks and hand percussion. No less intriguing is the previously unreleased Destroyer-era, Slade-inspired stomper "Doncha Hesitate" and Paul Stanley's disco-influenced "God of Thunder." Other demos give insight into the band's proclivity for cannibalizing early material for portions of soon-to-be hits. Though most fans recognize the 1970s as Kiss's heyday, the 1980s material such as Creatures of the Night's "War Machine" and Asylum's "Tears Are Falling" holds up surprisingly well. The fifth CD, which consists of 1990s output, falls flat, though some sparks are rekindled with the rewrite of Argent's "God Gave Rock & Roll to You." The box includes a thick, full-color booklet with rare photos and insightful song-by-song commentary from the band. --Kelly Minnis

Every kiss fan must buy this box set NOW!!!
A Customer
This box set is great has demos, previously unreleased songs, live versions and of course the normal songs all on 5 disks.
STTIM
The rest of the 1st Cd goes into the normal album versions,with no variations,and i think that stinks.

Here we go KISS fans (and I'm referring to the ONLY Kiss, 1973-1979)... I want to tell you to buy this box immediately! Discs 1 & 2 will blow you away! A friend of mine was allowed to purchase an advance copy and we listened to it this past Sunday.
I've been a KISS fan since March of 1975(age 9) and I've got to tell you that the excitement level from the material on discs one and two, had me feeling like I was 9 again; that sweet, life changing moment, when I first saw the "Dressed To Kill" album cover; filled with thrilling adrenalin, I was (and to have this kind of *feeling* in the age of "the KISS Kasket" ...well, ain't easy!)
As we listened to the BELL SOUND STUDIO demos(thank you endlessly, KEN SHARP), this excitement and adrenalin couldn't have been at a higher level! The "FIREHOUSE" and "100,000 YEARS" demos were especially JAW DROPPING for us KISS originals. They are much different than the studio versions that we're used to. They have expended sections: some similar to the "ALIVE!" versions, some totally NEW! Also, the playing is outstanding for demos(Kiss sounds like a cohesive machine here.) Alot of times, you get superfluous demos on box sets...not the case here!
Look out for "DONCHA HESITATE" (a previously unreleased, Dressed To Kill era "fun rocker" that'll getcha dancin'.)
"MAD DOG", which features the slowed down riff of "FLAMING YOUTH"(one of the band's most underrated songs), is totally engaging and unique, as it's an ACE & GENE collaboration(with ONLY ACE & GENE performing the song!)
The WICKED LESTER tracks are excellently remastered, as is the OVERALL remastering of the entire box (top-notch!

If you do not own a single KISS album - this is a great starter kit for you. You get a fair sampling of the entire history of this great band. All of the different stages are represented here. So, if you have been thinking about giving KISS a try - go for it!
For the die-hard KISS fans, this is a true dissapointment. Why do this to the fans? Simply put - if you are that big of a fan you already have all of these songs!! Is it really worth (money) to hear some demos? The live stuff isn't new either. There are simply a few scattered songs that may peak your interest but to drop a lot of money on this would be a waste if you have the albums already. KISS always brags that they have miles of archived material (live shows - demos from Ace and Peter). Well, why aren't they here? Why wasn't Alive 4 part of this set? You have to give the fans a real hook to entice them to buy a box set. So, a new book in here with new photos? Pics are great - but wasn't that what people were buying Kisstory 1 and 2 for? You could easily burn these tracks yourself from the albums you already own to make your own box set. We want new/unreleased material!
Where is the video footage that should be accompanying this set? KISS is a live band and they are meant to be seen as well as heard. This is sorely missing from the box set.

This collection starts off real well with some rare recordings.
My problem is why do they constantly re-release the same old songs over and over again?
Thos Wicked Lester recordings are realy good to listen to,but probably strictly for Kiss fans only.They were trying to sound like bands who were around at that time,and hadnt developed that Kiss sound.But i enjoyed listening to them.
The rest of the 1st Cd goes into the normal album versions,with no variations,and i think that stinks.
Cd 2 starts off with re-releases from Alive 1.Then we have a few rarities,some demos.I like to hear the variations,after all i already have the album versions,so why do i need them again?
The rest of the Cd is a mixture of normal versions and demo's.
Disk 3 gets a bit more disappointing with far fewer alternate versions, 2 demo's only and one live version of Talk To Me.
Disk 4 has got 2 unreleased songs,but no demo's.
Disk 5 has a demo of domino,and 2 songs not released on Kiss albums.
Dont get me wrong this collection has some excellent Kiss songs on it.There is one hell of alot of music here.
But im a Kiss fan of almost 30 years,and i know all their songs.
For new fans this should be a real treat,but i would much rather have alot more rare recordings,demos etc.I believe there is much more out there.
I know songs like Lick It Up are great songs,but how many times do i have to have it?
I realy miss the days when we used to love getting a new album or Cd,and listening to the new songs.Also it was interesting to see how new songs would fit into the next stage show.
Those were the days my friend,i thought they would never end,but for now it seems they have.

Granted, most KISS fans already have nearly all of their CDs anyway. This box set contains some interesting demos and the like, especially from the early days, but the vast majority of the tunes are already in your CD collection. The track-by-track commentary book, however, is interesting to read, and has multiple examples of how two or more unrelated songs were combined to make a single KISS tune. But I think you really have to be a die-hard fan to justify the purchase of this box. Not that there's anything wrong with that -- there are plenty of die-hard fans out there to do just that. The box set contains 5 discs. In order for the RIAA to award Platinum status to a record, the record has to sell one million units. Well guess what? In a multiple-CD collection, each CD counts as one "unit". So this box set only has to sell (or just ship to the stores) 200,000 boxes to be considered a Platinum-seller. So don't be surprised to hear Gene Simmons brag about this box set's Platinum status, because he inevitably will, God love him.
This is a good box set, though not an outstanding one. But it faithfully covers their entire catalog and then some, whereas some bands release box sets that only pay tribute to the material they are most proud of and leave the rest alone. KISS at least still embraces their lesser material.
