Sept. 18 : KISS - Love Gun Deluxe Edition To Be Released October 28
From :
Universal Music are proud to announce the next stage of KISS' 40th anniversary celebrations, with the release of a Deluxe Edition of the 1977 U.S. platinum album, Love Gun, on 2CD and digital formats.

The band's sixth studio recording, Love Gun was the first album to feature lead vocal performances from all four original band members, and the last studio album with the original KISS line-up. Love Gun has since gone on to sell more than four million copies worldwide.

The 2CD / digital edition includes the complete original album re-mastered on the first disc, featuring such classics as the title track 'Plaster Caster', the song inspired by Cynthia Plaster Caster, the groupie famous for taking casts of rock star genitalia; 'Shock Me', written about Ace Frehley suffering an electric shock during a concert in Lakeland, Florida; 'Christine Sixteen', and 'Then She Kissed Me', the band's cheeky, gender-switching cover of the Crystals' 1963 hit penned by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector.

The second disc is made up of rare, previously unreleased Love Gun demos of 'Plaster Caster', 'Then She Kissed Me', 'Tomorrow and Tonight' and 'Much Too Soon'. Also, the first four lines of the demo 'I Know Who You Are' eventually evolved and became the song 'Living In Sin'. A glimpse into Paul Stanley's creative process is demonstrated in 'Love Gun (Teaching Demo)' with Stanley talking through the various chords of the song after writing the song with the next version ' 'Love Guun (Demo)' ' being the complete demo performance. 'Reputation', the only previously released demo, was originally included on this year's KISS 40 compilation.

Also included is a 1977 interview with Gene Simmons, as well as three never-before-available live tracks from the KISS show at the Capitol Centre, Landover in Maryland U.S.A. from December 20, 1977 ' 'Love Gun', 'Christine Sixteen' and 'Shock Me'.

September 9 : Paul McCartney tribute album featuring KISS
From : Kiss Related Recordings
It's hard to believe but August 2010 it was reported here that KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons revealed during an interview that the band spent time at a Los Angeles studio recording a cover version of "Venus And Mars" for an upcoming PAUL MCCARTNEY tribute album.

February 2012 producer Ralph Sall already had been working on the album for two and a half years, but had yet to partner with a label or distributor for the release. Beside working in the studio, he also planned a TV special (DVD) using footage of the studio sessions and interview with the participating artists.

The "The Art Of McCartney" is a long awaited and very special project celebrating one of the most universally acclaimed songwriters of all time, Sir Paul McCartney. With backing provided by McCartney’s long time band, classic tracks such as Maybe I’m Amazed, My Love, The Long And Winding Road, When I’m 64, Let It Be, Helter Skelter, Eleanor Rigby, Live And Let Die have been recorded by some of the world’s greatest artists.
The calibre of artists showing their respect to Paul’s songwriting genius is truly staggering. Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, The Cure, The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Brian Wilson, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Dr John, Yusuf, Barry Gibb, Jamie Cullum, KISS, Chrissie Hynde, ELO legend Jeff Lynne, and many more have recorded McCartney songs exclusively for this album.

- THE ART OF McCARTNEY (Exclusive Deluxe 4CD / 1DVD / 4LP Box Set)
