----


Extra NOTES :
"Sweet Ophelia" is a song originally released on Barry Mann's 1971 LP, "Lay It All Out", and were covered the same year by Wicked Lester. While Barry did better as a song writer, usually with his wife Cynthia Weil, or Gerry Goffin, his own recordings didn't do so well. What is interesting, from the point of KISStory, is that the audio engineer at Electric Lady Studios, where the album was recorded, was one Ron Johnson, later the producer of the Wicked Lester album. 

The Hollies song "I Wanna Shout" (covered by Wicked Lester as "We Want To Shout It Out Loud") closed their 1970 album "Confessions Of The Mind" and is from one of their more obscure albums...


Infinity recorded "(What Happens) In The Darkness" in 1972 ...
