San Francisco 1977 [Bondage Music BON 228, 1CD]

Live at the Cow Palace, San Francisco, CA; August 16, 1977. Good to very good soundboard.

The day Elvis died… and Kiss dedicated Rock And Roll All Nite to the King.

Here’s one for those in the Halloween mood… and, in the meantime, let’s spare a thought for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2006.

  2. His name was Frank Gifford, one of the original Dukes of Thompson, he is listening to tunes in a better place now, and he would have surely loved this recording. He introduced me to these guys, and Cherry Sloe Gin. Thank you Big O Amigos.

  7. I’m in the Dave Marsh camp on this band. “Kiss is not a great band, Kiss was never a great band, Kiss never will be a great band”. Dave lost the war when they were elected to the Rock Hall this year, but that still doesn’t make him wrong. Need more proof? Try watching Gene Simmons reality show(s) without vomitting.

  8. OOOPS! They weren’t nominated or elected to the Rock Hall! Dave is still safe! Rush may get in though. The Kiss of Canada. Let the hating begin!

  9. You have to give credit where it’s due.. They were a very hard working rock band that had smart business interest in mind. They slogged it out on the road circuit for years with Rush and many other young upstarts until they got noticed.. Of course, the prog rock and traditional sense of music fans wrote them off quickly, they then scored a huge media audience with a spectacular stage show and a gimmick laden image. They soon drew a very young crowd who alienated older fans who moved off into the upsurge of heavy metal to Judas Priest, Iron Maiden etc…or hair bands of the early 80s. They changed course and continued to reinvent themselves to take off the makeup and enjoyed another 15 years until their reunion shows, the farewell show and now the tribute show featuring the impostors in Ace and Peter’s makeup… Instead of war machine…. $$$ money machine is more like it. Thanks for sharing this…
