Paul Stanley, “KISS ALIVE Was Released FORTY FOUR YEARS AGO Today!”

Paul Stanley: KISS ALIVE Was Released FORTY FOUR YEARS AGO Today! We worked onstage and in the studio to create a Sonic Souvenir that put you in the middle of the Glory and the Chaos. Rock and Roll, Evangelical Church and World War III. It STILL sets the bar.

Alive! is the first live album, and fourth overall, by American hard rock band Kiss. It is considered to be their breakthrough and a landmark for live albums. Released on September 10, 1975, the double-disc set contains live versions of selected tracks from their first three studio albums, Kiss, Hotter Than Hell and Dressed to Kill. It was recorded at concerts in Detroit, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; Wildwood, New Jersey; and Davenport, Iowa on May 16, June 21, July 20 and July 23, 1975.

The album’s title was an homage to the 1972 live album Slade Alive! from the English rock group Slade, a band that heavily influenced Kiss.-Wikipedia
