A great listen, a truly wonderful band, and it contains 3 of the most perfect pop songs ever written.
Vinyl just landed today - one for Sunday.
I've added it to Spotify and might even buy the CD in the future. Are there any other Kiss albums that you'd recommend?
PC > AVI Neutron Five 2.1
Sony NWZ-A847 64GB Walkman > Westone UM3x
Iron Maiden - 22 Acacia Avenue
Band of Skulls - Death by Diamonds and Pearls
PINK FLOYD MEDDLE this maybe an oldie but it still sounds great 1971 .42 years old the only thing thats worrying me is I remember when it came out I was about 14
Turn It On, a Genesis compilation album that I recently bought used off ebay for a few quid. While it doesn't look very marked or damaged it's been one of the most challenging CDs of my whole collection to rip, taking three different applications (XLD, iTunes and Sound Forge) to rip it in its entirety, over a period of about two hours.

Been working my way through the back catalogue. A typically eclectic mix, although be warned that Coldcut's Kraftwerk Kover Kollection mixes will get Kraftwerk melodies stuck in your head for days.

Dire Straits - Sultans Of Swing (Live)
This is my favourite recording of this song. There's some particularly wonderful guitar playing in this live version.
This video is pure musical perfection.
The debut album called' Kiss' is brilliant as is the first live album called 'Alive!' (been a fan for 25 years). If you like your rock a little more bombastic then listen to the album 'Creatures of the night'
Enjoy the music!
Cheers 12D. I'll check them out.
