KISS
Crazy Killer Whales Alive! [Tarantura, 1CD]

Rock And Roll Over Tour; live at the Aichiken Taiiku Hall, Nagoya, Japan; March 28, 1977. Good to very good audience recording by Mr Peach.

Here’s one more for your Halloween party.

Relayer67 commented at collectorsmusicreviews.com:

This gem sounds like it was recorded very close to the stage, at times you can feel the audience at your back but there is very little interference directly by the recorder. The balance between instruments and vocals is excellent, everything is clear and well defined with a little bass in to boot and over all a very good to near excellent recording that is a pleasure to listen to. The show is fast paced and there is not a lot of talking between songs…

These 1977 concerts are great to listen to, the band is playing phenomenally well, probably the best they will ever play and seem to do nothing but want to please audiences. Ace is fluent tonight, his soloing throughout Let Me Go, Rock ā€˜Nā€™ Roll is great and the song builds the shows momentum.

  4. kiss rules if you are about 8 years old.

    By ronny jotten on Oct 25, 2011

  5. kiss ruled when i was eight years old and old kiss still rules, to me and lots of others around the world. i still go see them, even if ace and peter aren’t in the band right now. i like tommy and eric, but, they really should have their own makeup just like vinny vincent and eric carr did. the last time i saw kiss was 2 years ago today at bjcc arena here in b’ham, al on their alive 35 tour. i have it in my library. it was good.

    best,

  8. I love the cover art. Looks like The Ventures in the Bizarro World. :D

  10. My late wife and I hosted Keiko, a Japanese student, for 4 months in 1984. We went with about 80 students to Disneyland on of the few host couples that did. These young Japanese, who were in early 20’s, did not interact in anyway that age. I had 5 years experience teaching various ages in an elementary school setting, and also worked with young teens. These Japanese youth throughout their 4 month stay did not have a hint of adultness to them at all. They seemed closer to Middle school equivalent - much more innocent. So I would understand much more their fandom of acts like KISS and even Stryper 7 years later. The Japanese have a much more connection to live evocative theater - lots of imagery and symbolism.

  11. for fans of what kiss is doing now and how they look there is a pro shot video circulating that theyre showing on a channel here called palladia. its one hour long filmed in germany this past summer. there might be a longer version out there as well since the ones i get to see are often edited. the show is excellent if u are a kiss fan and if u can deal with the 2 non original members. why this really matters is beyond me when their musicianship was subpar to begin with. i was kind of a bit of a fan but not that much when i was a teen but i grew up with them in my neighborhood and i got to watch them rehearse and do clubs with less than 20-50 in the audience. first gig was 3 people and i was one of em. i was 13. i have a nice pic of me with gene but i dont know how to put a pic on here.
    if i liked the band id dl this but im too busy enjoying the peter gabriel and floyd etc. haha.

  12. hey bigo, i’ll just throw out another request for halloween. how about some ozzy? he did bite the head off of a dove and a bat. that i’m aware of, you’ve never posted ozzy except for sabbath. i definitely can use offenbach, germany 1981 with randy rhoads on guitar.

    ozzy rules!

  13. if we are requesting halloween music, how about scramin` jay hawkins!

    By sluggo on Oct 25, 2011

  14. that should be “Screamin`”..sorry..

    By sluggo on Oct 25, 2011

  15. Its cold gin time again
    you know its the only thing that keeps us together….

    By George Martini on Oct 26, 2011

  16. kiss has no musical talent … just 4 wanna be rock stars in clown make-up…

    By James on Oct 28, 2011

  17. James, that’s a good point. Even Stryper doesnt wear yellow and black striped spandex anymore. It’s primarily black leather they wear with the stripes relegated to guitars and drum kit.

    By 3yrsnojob on Oct 28, 2011

  18. James - that statement has been argued since they entered the studio 40 years ago… what’s ironic is that they started it as a serious band, slogged it on the road for three years and only till they released Alive! they won the world over. There was nothing bigger in 1977 than Kiss, it appealed to the hard rock crowd and the cool teens. Then they became over-saturated in 1978 with the Phantom movie and had all the pre-teens gravitating to them and then the pseudo disco hit. They then imploded on the road in 1979 with Peter Criss’s departure and a disappointing tour. Regardless of opinion or merit, this boot was a snapshot in time for the band that over 30 years later proves that the “right place, right time” worked very well for some. It amazes me that they are still going…. some of their audience is now bringing their grandchildren to concerts….

  19. Nothing makes me feel like I’m 14 again like a live Kiss show. My first concert ever was Kiss 12-22-77 at the good old spectrum in Philly, right after Love Gun came out. AC/DC opened for em and Bonn Scott was still alive !! Some people love em ,some hate em but for me they will always be a cornerstone in the rocker I have become. Thanks so much for the post !! ROCK ON !!

    By Steve on Nov 4, 2011

  20. Steve - regarding your post on Nov 4, 2011. AC/DC did NOT open the show or even perform at the KISS concert at the Spectrum on December 22, 1977. The show was opened by Bob Segar.

    By [email protected] on Mar 16, 2012

  21. Both Steve and immaddawg are incorrect regarding Dec 22 1977 Spectrum show. I was there and The Rockets opened up for KISS. The Rockets were good, KISS was better!!

  22. Darth - you should post that photo of you and Gene, that would be really cool.

    By Post-The-Photo-Darth on Jul 5, 2014

  23. If we are requesting Halloween music, how about some of the Pink Floyd’s live “Careful with that Axe Eugene,” and or “Saucerful of Secrets”?

    Thanks, have a great one. James from Thompson.

  24. I love the KISS haters, their lives have so little meaning and substance that they spend an inordinate amount of personal time on the internet bashing KISS….awesome :)

    By have a kiss on Nov 2, 2014

  26. KISS only smell funny if it’s a diseased whore you’re “kissing”, the band KISS actually smell like kerosene and booze ;)

    By IfYouHateKISSyou'reAnASS on Nov 2, 2014

  28. Then you need to get your nose outta my ass “have a kiss”

    By IfYouHateKISSyou'reAnASS on Nov 4, 2014

  29. KISS sucks, but not in a good way.

    Still, listening to their sonic excreta beats the hell out of reading Darth’s mastubatory keyboard ejaculate any day.

    By darth's_taint on Nov 4, 2014

  30. *masturbatory*, you idiot! You need a firmer grasp on spelling.
