KISS - Alive I & II
KISS is an American rock band formed in New York City in December 1972. Easily identified by its members' trademark face paint and stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid and late-1970s on the basis of their elaborate live performances, which featured fire breathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, and pyrotechnics. Kiss has been awarded 24 gold albums to date. The group's worldwide sales easily exceed 80 million albums.
Alive! was Kiss' fourth album and is considered their breakthrough, as well as a landmark for live albums. Released on September 10, 1975, the double-disc set contained live versions of selected tracks from their first three studio albums, Kiss, Hotter Than Hell, and Dressed to Kill. It peaked at #9 on the album charts. The album charted for 110 weeks, by far the longest in the band's history. Approximately two years after the album's release, it was certified Platinum, and the band received their Platinum awards on stage at the Cobo Hall in Detroit, MI (the site of the album's recording). In 2003, the album was ranked number 159 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. 1, 2.
