Setting the record straight
on 18 October 2005
This isn't really a review, more of a response to the views expressed by M A Kelley (see review further down). I just wanted to set the record straight, for anyone intending to buy this.
The tracks on this CD are probably re-mastered, but otherwise pretty much Identical to the original album tracks. (Detroit Rock City has had the annoying Car Crash Intro removed, but the actual song is the same). The Tracks he mentioned, Black Diamond and Deuce are Identical to the Original versions on 'KISS', so please do not be put off thinking that these are updated or altered. (Perhaps he is mistaking the album tracks for live versions)
As it stands, this album is a great intro to early KISS, with most of the more popular recognised songs. For a band with over 30 albums, you're never going to please everyone with your song choices, but at 20 tracks it's good value for money. I'm hoping that one day we'll see 'Greatest Hit's Vol 2', with more songs from the Carr, Kulick, Singer, etc. years.
