KISS engineer Rob Freeman discusses early 1981 sessions

Post by Julien »

A complete interview excerpt from the new KISS-related book, "Odyssey."

Prior to engaging the services of producer Bob Ezrin and transforming their 1981 album project into a concept album, KISS set about recording at Ace Frehley's Ace In The Hole studio. Several songs were worked on and engineer Rob Freeman discusses those aborted sessions...

More than 30 years later, KISS's "Music From The Elder" has attained a cult-classic status among a segment of diehard KISS fans. A great part of the album's appeal lies in the mysterious conditions under which it was created. While "Music From The Elder" has been discussed in various music publications and KISS-related books, there has never been a concentrated effort to put this album under a historical microscope. Until now. Through a series of brand-new interviews, original features and related special content, "Odyssey: The definitive examination of "Music From The Elder," KISS' cult-classic concept album" shines a spotlight on "Music From The Elder" like never before. More than 30 interviews were conducted with various individuals who either worked on the project or have a connection of sorts, including professionals who have never told their "Elder story." These interviews will provide interesting insights and unique perspectives regarding the album's creative process and this fascinating period in KISStory, in addition to fun anecdotes and personal recollections.

"Odyssey" is available from many book sellers in hardcover, paperback, and digital formats. Visit" onclick=";return false; for more information.
