"Unplugged was a chance for us to celebrate the musical history of the band by stripping, some great songs from different points in our history, down to the bare essence of what makes them great." — Kiss vocalist/guitarist Paul Stanley
Kiss is celebrating their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with a reissue series featuring their career-spanning discography on vinyl in March 2014, including their 1998 effort Psycho Circus on the format for the very first time.
Among the titles returning to record store shelves are the band's self-titled debut and sophomore Hotter Than Hell albums (both from 1974) as well as their double-live 1975 breakthrough album Alive! - which was already reissued back in 2008. Also arriving are 1976's Destroyer, 1979's Dynasty, 1980's Unmasked, 1983's Lick it Up, 1984's Animalize and 1992's Revenge. Quality Record Pressings did the plating and pressing for these reissues, insuring exceptional sound quality!
KISS MTV Unplugged was recorded August 9, 1995 at Sony Music Studios in New York City. The majority of the album features Paul, Gene, Eric Singer and Bruce Kulick. Ace Frehley and Peter Criss join Paul and Gene for "2000 Man" and "Beth." All six members close out the album with "Nothin' To Lose" and "Rock and Roll All Nite." MTV originally broadcast KISS Unplugged on October 31, 1995.
"The highlight of this MTV gig is the cover of the Stones' "2,000 Man," which Kiss covered on Dynasty. Though the four original members play together on only two tunes ('2,000 Man' and the first real acoustic guitar version of their hit "Beth"), the two tracks ('Rock and Roll All Nite' and 'Nothin' to Lose') on which they're joined by current members — drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Bruce Kulick — are also magical.
"The rest of the album, featuring only the current lineup, has some great moments when Kiss's songwriting prowess really shines through. Songs such as 'Comin' Home,' 'Sure Know Something,' 'See You Tonight,' and 'Goin' Blind' sound amazing in the acoustic format." — Amazon.com
