KISSOLOGY - The Ultimate KISS Collection Vol. 1

KISS is releasing a DVD box set at the end of next month titled KISSOLOGY. KISS has released several DVD's during the past decade, but most of them contained material that had been rehashed and remixed a thousand times. KISSOLOGY will be the first DVD collection from the band that includes unreleased material from the classic live shows that made the band famous in the early 70's. I've seen some of the stuff on bootlegs that have been leaked on the internet, but the DVD's will be fully digitally remastered for optimum quality.

The two disc set will include nearly six hours of footage with rare interviews, TV appearances, and live concert footage from 1974-1977. Gene claims that every KISS show has been filmed, and the fans have waited years for this footage to be released. The scheduled release date is on Halloween, October 31, 2006.

The reported tracks will be:

Disc 1
  1. The Coventry “Deuce” 1973 (DVD Easter Egg)
  2. Long Beach, CA “Acrobat” 1974
  3. ABC “In Concert” 1974
  4. The Mike Douglas Show 1974
  5. NBC “Midnight Special” 1975
  6. Music Videos Come On And Love Me & Rock And Roll All Night 1975
  7. Cadillac, Michigan vignette 1975
  8. Winterland San Francisco, CA 1/31/75
  9. Cobo Hall Detroit, MI 1/26/76
Disc 2
  1. Ace Frehley’s Wedding Performance New York, NY 1976 (DVD Easter Egg)
  2. “So It Goes”(British TV Show) 5/13/76
  3. The Paul Lynde Halloween Special 1976
  4. Tokyo, Japan Budokan Hall 4/2/77
  5. Don Kirshner’s “Rock Concert” “Hard Luck Woman” “Love Em & Leave Em” “I Want You”
  6. Houston, TX The Summit 9/2/77
Since the set is titled "Volume 1," I am assuming that there will be a "Volume 2" that includes similar material from '78-'80 up until the original members broke up for the first time. Knowing Gene and his love of money, there will probably also be Volumes 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. I probably won't buy Volume 8, because I suspect it will be another release of KISS (sans Ace and Peter) in "Rock the Nation Live" DVD set from 2004 with added footage of special, never released, behind-the-scenes footage of Rock School and Family Jewels, Gene's two reality programs from A&E.
