You wanted the best, you got the best! It’s KISS! At the height of their powers in 1977! With all four original members! Performing live in Japan! .. (exclamation points officially ending here) … This was recorded for HBO and I remember seeing this very concert during the summer of 1979 when me and my brother went to visit my Dad in Northern Virginia. Two of my Dad’s female neighbors in their early 20s invited us all over to watch the concert on their TV since they had HBO. I can’t imagine my Dad’s neighbors were particularly interested in KISS … or my brother and me, for that matter … but I’m not going to complain that they used my interest in KISS to get to know my Dad better. It was doubly cool because I was now able to see my favorite band at the time life, I also got to check out this thing called HBO that I had seen advertised on TV, but wouldn’t be available in my neighborhood for two more years. As always, Paul Stanley doesn’t disappoint with his stage raps here.
