KISS Announce 'The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982' Box-Set

KISS Announce 'The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982' Box-Set -

KISS have announced details of a new box-set comprised solo of singles released during their Casablanca Records tenure.

"The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982" will feature either 29 seven-inch vinyl singles or 29 CD discs, all housed in a die cut shadow box with limited edition etched silver metal plate and ribbon pull magnetic closure custom KISS 45s box with 26 collectable picture sleeves from original single releases around the world.

"Even I haven't heard some of this stuff, but this is all part of our master plan to celebrate KISS at this milestone in our careers. This box set represents us at the very beginning of our career, and documents the band's early success and subsequent growth," says Gene Simmons.

"This collection is meant for the true KISS aficionado," adds Paul Stanley. "The packaging really captures the development of both our music and image at a very crucial period in the band's history."

In their early days, KISS released a total of 29 singles on seven-inch 45 RPM records for the Casablanca label. These were available for sale to the public, used for commercial radio airplay and to promote album sales. Many of these singles had entirely different mixes, edits and material that didn't appear on their vinyl albums.
