Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The band reunited with producer Eddie Kramer for this raucous rocker from late 1976 (another #11 LP). The hits Hard Luck Woman and Calling Dr. Love join killer cuts like I Want You; Makin' Love , and Mr. Speed .

Amazon.com

As the follow-up to their unusually experimental Destroyer (nonetheless one of Kiss's best albums ever), Rock and Roll Over, released the same year, contains more conventional three-chord material. That's not a bad thing, since Kiss at their peak arguably did three-chord arena-rock better than anyone else. "Calling Dr. Love" was a hit single, as was the surprisingly bittersweet (for Kiss) "Hard Luck Woman." "I Want You" is an unnerving mix of tenderness and tension, while "Take Me" is understandably urgent. Although this was material that would become conventional over the years--thanks to legions of copycat bands--it still sounds good today, probably because whether they're being sleazy or sweet, Kiss sound like they mean it. -- Genevieve Williams

Customer Reviews

One of the best albums KISS ever made.
JAYMZ
Eddie Kramer (minus KISS) produced the most fun material for these guys: Alive!, this one, Ace Frehley's solo album.
Kawika
The highlights include Take Me, Love 'Em & Leave 'Em, Makin' Love, Hard Luck Woman and Calling Dr Love.

THE BAND: Gene Simmons (Gene Klein), Paul Stanley (Stanley Eisen), Ace Frehley (Paul Frehley), Peter Criss (Peter Crisscoula).

THE DISC: Released 11/11/76. Recorded at the Record Plant, NYC. 10 songs clocking in at approximately 34 minutes. A classic album cover - featuring the 4 painted faces in a colorful circle. Originally released on Casablanca Records in 1975; this remastered edition was released in 1997 on Mercury's label. Much improved sound in my book (deeper bass guitars and crisper highs). Liner notes are slim - a 2 page fold out with song titles, writing credits and times. Underneath the disc on the inside cover, there's an informative 5 paragraph history of what the band was going through at the time.

COMMENTS: Hot off the heels of the platinum "Alive!" and "Destroyer" comes "Rock And Roll Over"... Kiss' 6th album in 3 short years. In my opinion, this is the band's first studio album with absolutely no filler. Song writing credits include 5 from Paul, 4 from Gene, and 1 from Peter. The only thing missing is a song penned from Ace. There's no weird out-of-character tracks like "Great Expectations" (from "Destroyer") or the forthcoming "Then She Kissed Me" throwback (from soon to be released "Love Gun"). This is back to basics rock and roll. Great guitar solo's from Ace (see "Calling Dr. Love" and "I Want You"). Better than average drumming from Peter (not to mention a better than average Peter song in "Baby Driver"). High quality songwriting from Paul. And the typical comic relief and sleaze of scoring babes from Gene. This album, like so many of their releases in the 1970's was extremely short. The longest songs are "Calling Dr. Love" and "Love 'Em And Leave' Em" - both at 3:47 minutes each.

This is Peter, Paul, Gene, and Ace at their hard rockin' best. Recorded live in the round and produced by Eddie Kramer this one is full of pure raw energy. I've been listening to this one for over 20 years and I still manage to give it a listen at least once a month. It's just that good. The songwriting is simple and powerful, mostly about fun and good times. Ace displays some of his best lead work during his time in the band on this album. Highly recommended.

During the Destroyer tour,KISS had written ten new songs.As a special treat to their fans,KISS decided to record and release a new album before 1976 ended.Eddie Kramer,their road producer was hired to produce it. Rock and Roll Over was released before the end of 1976. It's sales would equal Destroyer in popularity that it quickly became their second platinum.It even marked some more progression artistically.
Of the songs,two are Pauls(I Want You and Hard Luck Woman).Three are co-written by Paul with Sean Delaney(Take Me,Mr.Speed and Makin' Love) Gene contributes four(Calling Dr. Love,Ladies Room,Love'Em and Leave'Em and See You In Your Dreams).There is also a song written by Peter and Stan Penridge(Baby Driver).The only songs missing are Ace Frehleys(the only '70's KISS album with this distinction).
Kramer gives Rock and Roll Over an edge that was missing from their first two albums.He also helps to deliver their most polished sounding rock since Dressed To Kill(see review).Likewise,the band is at their most infectious.
Lyrically,KISS returns to its true style.In fact,three in particular are their best yet.Hard Luck Woman is Pauls best song and Peter turns in his best vocal effort.Peter also does lead vocal on Baby Driver.This shows Peters vocals are again being put to maximum use.Calling Dr.Love is not only Genes best but his most boldest.In this song,Genes prescription to a lonely,depressed and miserable lady is for her to make love with him.On the other hand,See You In Your Dreams is another one of Genes best.Here,Gene tells a girl to just dream when she goes to sleep and he'll see her then(Gene rerecorded this song for his 1978 solo album).The rest of the songs are also bolder,deeper and much more uninhibited.

After the experimentation with Bob Ezrin on 'Destroyer', it was generally decided to try to capture the feel of 'Alive!' on a studio album. For that they recruited Eddie Kramer (famed producer of Hendrix and the original Kiss demos). Retiring to an unused New York theater, Eddie and the boys produced the second in the the trio of classic studio Kiss albums ('Destroyer' and 'Love Gun' being the other two) . ROCK AND ROLL OVER is a hard rock feast from start to finish with barely enough time left to catch your breath.
I WANT YOU - Starts out acoustic and quiet, then suddenly leaps out and takes hold of you. The fretwork by Ace Frehley sets the tone for the entire album. The Space Ace improves with every album. Paul Stanley's vocals are commanding and the harmony vocals on the chorus shows that someone was paying attention during the 'Destroyer' sessions.
TAKE ME - "Put your hand in my pocket, travel to my rocket . .." If you don't know what Paul is singing about, well it isn't about space travel! Great falsetto answering vocals on the chorus,probably double tracked by Paul.
CALLING DOCTOR LOVE - Starting out as a song called 'Bad,Bad Lovin'', this track has changed into a another musical alter ego of Gene Simmons ('God Of Thunder' being the first.) Ace's axework sounds like a electric surgical tool being operated. I really love Gene's faint groaning answer vocals in the chorus. Sounds even better live!
LADIES ROOM - Gene wants to have a little meet and greet session with you, and where else to stage this little get together than in the 'Ladies Room?'. The vocal harmony work on this album is outstanding, especially on this track.
BABY DRIVER - The Catman's turn to rock out. Peter Criss'"rusty" voice really suits this track and his drumming really pushes the song onward.
