Kiss To Release Casablanca Box Set
Rock band Kiss have announced the forthcoming release of their 1974-1982 singles box set which is made up of tracks that were released on their former legendary record label Casablanca.
First signed to the label in 1973, the band have since released a total of 29 singles on seven-inch 45 RPM records with them. As they look to celebrate their 40th anniversary next year, the group have decided to pay homage to their previous releases with two limited edition collection configurations. Fans can purchase the collections as a box set of either 29 CDs or 7" vinyls.
The sets, which are released on the 3rd of December, are housed in a beautiful die-cut shadow box with a limited edition, etched silver metal plate custom KISS 45s box. There are also 26 collectible picture sleeves from original single releases around the world, including Japan, Germany, Holland, Spain and Britain. Both sets include a booklet which tracks the chart history of each single represented in the package and four individual KISS masks.
“Even I haven't heard some of this stuff, but this is all part of our master plan to celebrate KISS at this milestone in our careers,” says Gene Simmons. “This box set represents us at the very beginning of our career, and documents the band's early success and subsequent growth.”
The special set comes out after the release of their 20th studio album, Monster, and will be priced at approximately £140.
