It was this week in 1975, that KISS and their "KISS Alive" album entered the charts and it would eventually peak at #9 nationwide. It would stay on the charts for 110 weeks. Some of the tracks were recorded in Detroit at Cobo Hall during the bands summer tour of 1975.
Rolling Stone magazine had this say about the collection...this 1975 Kiss double album brought all the bomb-exploding, light-strobing, fire-breathing, blood-vomiting, greasepaint-streaked madness of the Kiss live experience direct to every teenager's bedroom, up through their oversized headphone cans and straight into the collective bloodstream.

The bands followers known as The Kiss Army grew big time with release of the  album buying over 7 million copies worldwide. At last count of all the KISS albums they have sold 37,500,000 in the U.S.A. alone.
