Destroyer Album Cover Front

April

On Tour: The Spirit of '76/Destroyer (Tour)

With the manner in which touring for the "Alive!" was concluded and the recording of the "Destroyer" album, the transition between the two eras is somewhat confused and convoluted. While the recording of the "Destroyer" album had been completed in January the band still had dates scheduled for touring in support of the "Alive!" album. Following the conclusion of the "Destroyer" sessions the band recommenced touring activities on Jan. 23. The first single from the new album, "Shout It Out Loud," was released in early March, so it is hardly surprising that it was the first song from the album to be added to the set list. When precisely is unclear, but it is most certainly present on the recordings available from the Miami and Philadelphia shows on Mar. 21 and 24 respectively. Following the conclusion of the "Alive!" tour in Springfield, MA, on Mar. 28, the band took a two week break to prepare for the next touring cycle... [Read More]

RARO Album Cover Front

November

On Tour: Rock And Roll Over (Tour)

It is generally accepted that "KISS Alive!" was the album that saved KISS's then stalling career. Similarly the live album was also a savior for Casablanca Records at a convenient time when a couple of other roster artists started gaining traction. It's also obvious that "Destroyer" nearly destroyed the band's success before they'd really had more than a taste of fame (but no fortune for the band members quite yet); prior to a certain "throw-away" ballad transforming the band from successes to superstars. It was a near miss, and that album had taken the band far from their comfort zone, both creatively and artistically. Bob Ezrin had pushed them to their limits on an individual and group basis. While the band had willingly agreed to Ezrin's guidance, and all-out sonic experimentation and refinement which resulted in "Destroyer," it was not something they could aspire to on a regular basis. The resulting album, however, alienated a large sector of the original core of '73 - '75 fans -- the band's studio sound became ultra-polished rather than raw and somewhat rushed "thunder-rock." The KISS of 1975, into early 1976, was a band whose studio sonic dynamic had changed. An analogy of a caterpillar metamorphosing into a butterfly might be apt, were one writing flowery prose. Discarded was the foundational ethos of trying to capture the band "live" in the studio. The band had been chasing the impossible, trying to present themselves as fans heard them live. "Alive!" proved the futility, the need to accept that they could ultimately never capture that missing magical ingredient that fueled the live performance. No revisionism is required when considering the merits of the albums that preceded "Rock And Roll Over." ... [Read More]
