1992-1995 would be interesting for many because it was an unusual period of events.

In that case 83/84 or 92/95.

I have a suspicion that they will not release the older shows we’d like. I don’t think we’ll see a Creatures show or Hotter than Hell show, for example.
I think it starts with 2001 and goes UP.
So, 2001 is issue 1. Followed by the subsequent tours that followed.
I also think this will be a total of, maybe, 5-10 shows, and once those are all released, a box set will be made available with all the pictures and liner notes we’ve been wanting.
But, that’s just my theory.
It’s not what I want, either, but I think this is what we’ll get or offered.

To answer the poll question, I’d like a recording of a Creatures and LIU concert.

They only did like three shows in 1982. You're pretty specific if you need it to be one of those. :wink: So basically 1983, same difference.

Apologies, I messed things up a bit and re-edited my original poll options (unnecessarily), so a few people who voted early may need to cast their votes again.

My bad. I thought the Creatures Tour was for the biggest part in 1982. Was wrong. :)

They wrote out the lineup on the final cover, did they not? That is quite interesting and seems to atleast point to different lineups showing up.

Maybe they are sound enough to realise there is a chance that is what KISS will have and give out? Just as the first one was.

Fair enough. To me some bootlegs (the better ones) have an attraction of their own as they are. The 10th Anniversary Tour album (I assume you mean this one by LA '83) possibly being my most favourite one. Of course, if they actually happened to have that particular show off the soundboard as it were, then sure, bring it.

This... by tour would be best. Or specific show(s); like Ace's last Aussie show in '80 (aka his last full show until reunion); any Vinnie as long as it's not Brazil... LIU tour would be ideal, since it would bix COTN and LIU materail fairly well; and maybe the club tour for Revenge.

Peter aside, do you really believe the hair metal version of KISS is the real classic stuff or good stuff as you say. KISS wouldn't have made it if they started out in the 80's without the makeup, etc.

Just a quick note: A true soundboard recording is taped directly from the mixing console as opposed to an audience recording which is taped from the room. Most of the time you can tell that it's a soundboard if the fans are very low in the mix. Nearby voices and screams point to an audience recording.

Rockford 82 sounds to me like an audience recording.
True soundboard are Toronto 9/6/76 & Detroit 1/26/76 for example.

I don't pay attention to what's considered classic or what I'm supposed to like. As difficult as it may be for some to understand or accept, 1980-95 KISS interests and means much more to me than originals' era. Even Crazy Nights and HITS have some great Gene songs, and Bruce solos on the former, to make them worth my while.

The 70s stuff has its moments, but it's rare for me to play a whole album. I'd rather hear those songs played live from 1980-83 and again from 1992-95.

'You're not a real fan if you don't like x, y, or z!' Oh, do fuck off and let people enjoy things.
