Cool episode!
Destroyer is my favorite studio lp , so I ordered the deluxe set the moment I saw the listing.
I still listen to CDs and cassettes and even 8-tracks . Will probably pick up the vinyl lps as well. Waiting to see if there is the SS German version first.
I have a 5.1 surround sound movie theater room in the basement. I’m sure the wife will be over the top when I inform her that it can be played on that. Haha!
Hopefully a ALIVE! Or ALIVE II gets a treatment like this.

Great 1st up deluxe release, hopefully sells well enough for another one.. hopefully Elder. Imagine the package for a Elder deluxe release.. original album, different remix, endless demos, Elder Kiss Army Kit that was released in Oz.
Just a question, how much input would Kiss have had on the demos , live CD etc or is it all Universal Musics decision as to what goes on?
Dubai package-debacle!
Re Ace live show, if it’s a short set , why not do a song from each of his comet and solo albums?

Mr. Gill, please forgive my pedanticism and going off topic. I have been a big fan of your books for years, but allow me to draw your attention to a pet peeve of mine: "Song Titles" vs. Album Titles. I'm sure like me, you read a lot of music related books and magazines and will thus have noticed the commonly used formatting of titles. As you are planning a new project, please consider examining these tips. I can't be the only one whose brain hurts seeing album titles in quotation marks.

"Generally and grammatically speaking, but titles of shorter works in quotation marks but italicize titles of longer works. For example, put a “song title” in quotation marks but italicize the title of the album it appears on."
https://stlcc.edu/student-support/acade ... itles.aspx

"Song titles are always surrounded by quotation marks ... Album titles, on the other hand, are always italicized."
https://thewritepractice.com/song-album-titles/

"Typically, album titles are italicized, just like book titles, journal titles, or movie titles. Song titles are enclosed in quotation marks, as is often the case with poem titles, book chapter titles, or article titles."

This is not a criticism, just a friendly tip. Looking forward to watching the episode tonight, thanks.

Great episode gentlemen! I struggled with deciding which version to buy but ultimately decided on the deluxe version and the black vinyl version. I am finally getting on board with the comeback of vinyl!!! I resisted for many years but about a week ago I started putting together a new system. I miss the old days of a nice "rack" system. My wife pointed out how important music and live shows are to me, so she even gave me her blessing to invest! Very pumped as I still have a ton of vinyl from back in the day!

This is the firsttime I personally have ever seen italicized as a prefered way to identify a title. Italics are often hard to distinguish on a web page. As a published author I find that readers do not care if the title is Quoted or Underlined. Frankly, underlined sentences are annoying visually, so I ignore that rule.

"Crazy, Crazy Nights" was on Crazy Nights.

That's the generally agreed standard: songs in quotation marks, album title in italics.
The next step is consistency.
Then, there's the reference to an album, but not about the album, i.e. 'Destroyer' Tour or 'Love Gun' costumes ...

The same was true for me Tom. But even with some of the sources quoted, I didn't immediately discount.

I've just had a discussion with an English Ph.D (as in Ph.D in English and stuff, versus some random English person with a Ph.D), who agrees at least as far as "in print" goes. With there Aero book a few grammatical nuances have lead to interesting discussions... abbreviations of U.S. states, shortening of month name, exclamations, and the ellipses. I still have the challenge of mixed English/American forms for some rules.

Awesome episode gents. I was already excited about the Destroyer box set. I have a feeling I’m going to feel like a kid on Xmas morning when this finally shows up. I am especially looking forward to seeing what is in the book and getting my hands on the Canadian tour flyer.

As already pointed out, it is the commonly accepted standard. If it's the first time you've seen it, I don't know what to tell you. I too am a published author for what it's worth. And indeed, do not underline whole blocks of text, that's certainly a good rule to keep in mind.

Good episode, watched it this morning.

Just to follow up on a previous question, does anyone know if this is purely a Universal Music product or does Kiss provide the live material, demo tracks etc.

I thought I read somewhere that some of the demos came from the band.

I will have to wait for a UK release. 20% tax and shipping makes the cost unjustifiable. Not my favourite album but do like the extras in the box. Thanks as always for the podcast.

Great discussion. All valid points. I'm just holding out a little longer to see what the European release looks like and if there possibly will be some sort of local release here in Australia to avoid the high postage costs.
