Descriptions du produit
Kiss est aujourd'hui considéré comme l'un des groupes de rock les plus influents des années 70. C'est aussi le groupe qui cumule le plus grand nombre de disques d'or aux États-Unis. Après avoir vu Kiss lors d'un showcase à New York en 1973, Neil Bogart, fondateur du label Casablanca, décide de les signer sur le champ. Entre 1974 et 1982, Casablanca Records sortira 29 singles en 45 tours. Ces singles ont été soit commercialisés, soit utilisés uniquement en radio pour la promotion. Ce sont de véritables bonus pour les fans car nombre de ces titres présentent des mix différents de ceux des albums originaux. Voici réunis pour la toute première fois l'intégralité de ces singles prestigieux. Ils sont disponibles en deux coffrets (CD ou vinyles au choix), Chaque coffret comporte un livret de 36 pages richement illustré. > The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982, 29 x CD Collection > The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982, 29 x 7" Vinyl Collection

The edits/different mixes are a must-have for the KISS fanatic. The only thing missing that I would have liked are the Japanese Talk To Me/Easy As It Seems single,I/Only You single,The Oath/Escape From The Island single & I'm A Legend Tonight/Love Gun(remix)single. I'm aware that they are only compiling the North American release singles & not ones exclusive to other countries. It just would've been even greater with the addition of these as well!
Overall, excellent packaging with attention to detail. An amazing addition to a KISS fanatic's collection...
Ok, what's in this box of classic Kiss 7" vinyl singles? Twenty-nine of the band's singles released while they were on the Casablanca label. The first four are in generic plain white die cut card sleeves. The remainder are reproduced picture covers. I say reproduced because some are good some not so. They've obviously been sourced from collectors (probably Gene Simmons' personal collection, after all he has the largest Kiss collection in the world) and scanned with varying results. A little more care with the reproduction of the covers and this would've been an outstanding set of singles.
Now the music and the various tracks included and sometimes duplicated in this set. There are many unique mixes and edits in this set and a couple of tracks have been presented twice. Take Detroit Rock City for example. It's flip side is Beth. When DRC was not a hit with radio djs they turned the record over and started playing the other side and the single was re-released with Beth as the A-side and it became a hit. For some strange reason, I'm guessing for the sake of collectors and perfectionists, two copies of the single have been included in this box. Yes there are two different picture covers but both records are exactly the same except for the printing on the label which states which track is the A-side. They even have the same catalogue number! But wait there's more. Their first single Nothin' To Lose, was not a hit. Their manager suggested recording a cover version of the song Kissin' Time and what did they use for the B-side? Nothin' To Lose. So it's here twice as well. Rock And Roll All Nite is here twice, three times if you count the live version, as is Getaway. So the track inclusions/variations are a bit meagre for the first 11 singles. After that there's quite a few unique single mixes and edits to be found within the set such as the single mix of Strutter '78, Shock Me and Calling Dr.Love which can only be found in this box. In fact over the remaining 18 singles there are numerous edits and different mixes to be found and almost no repeated songs only Shock Me is here twice but at least they are two different versions.
But the thing I find the strangest about the box is what IS included here and what has been left out and the reasoning behind deciding what to use for the records is a bit strange to say the least. The compilers have used the original American versions of the singles for the audio but have used overseas releases for the picture covers. The major reason that they have made this decision is because only two Kiss singles were released with picture covers up until 1982 in the United States. So you have a mishmash of the European and Japanese covers for the picture sleeves and the two singles that were released in United States.
It's a nicely presented boxset if you're into collecting records. If you're not into playing vinyl you could always buy "The Casablanca Singles (1974-1982)" CD version although I'm sure it's just as much hard work to play as you would be changing discs after every two songs. For collectors there are a lot of unique versions of Kiss classics in here. Just be aware that some of the printing and reproduction for the single covers is not as good as it could be. There's an informative paperback book with track info, release dates, chart performance and other bits of Trivia but the one other major thing that's missing is a download of the contents. A digital download of all the singles would've been a nice extra for such an expensive release but of course means if you want digital versions of all the singles the band (Gene and Paul) would like you to buy the CD set.
For the new fan, even if you're into vinyl, I'd give this a miss or you could buy it as a present for someone you know that is a Kiss fanatic. They'll love you Forever!
