Episode 449, October 5, 2021. Tom Jermann from T42 Design joins us to talk about the KISS Destroyer 45th Anniversary Box Set that he helped put together.
The album will be released on standard double black vinyl and limited edition yellow and red double coloured vinyl, as well as a double CD set, but it’s the super-deluxe variant that’ll get the pulse racing if you’re a Kiss fan.
The first of four CDs includes the original album newly remastered at Abbey Road, while the second disc features 15 demos from Paul Stanley’s and Gene Simmons’s personal archives. The third CD is packed with studio outtakes, alternate versions, alternate mixes and single edits, while the final CD features a live recording of a show at L’Olympia, Paris, in May 1976.
For the Blu-ray disc, king of prog remixes Steven Wilson has created mixes of the original album in Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround sound, as well as two bonus tracks Beth (Acoustic Mix) and Sweet Pain (Original Guitar Solo). The latter features an Ace Frehley guitar solo that was not released on the original studio album (but did turn up on 2012’s Destroyer: Resurrected project).
The super-deluxe edition also includes a raft of Kiss ephemera, including a 68-page hardcover book with extensive liner notes by Classic Rock writers Paul Elliott and Ken Sharp. Full contents follow.
Forget the haters, we won!
