Definitely my favorite studio album by the most marketed rock band in history! Best songs include Detroit Rock City, God of Thunder, Shout It Out Loud and Beth. If I were to introduce KISS​ to a new listener, I would make sure they listened to this album.

The album cover is classic KISS styled and highlights all of the original members at their prime!

I have two versions of this LP with the older blue labels.

Ones cover has the Columbia House 'CRC' mark on it and there are some scratched out numbers in the matrix area. The other matches this one almost exactly, only difference: Matrix ends with 'CTH' instead of 'CSM'. Labels look the same. Inner sleeves differ very slightly, one has the opening at the top, the other is on the side.

Should I submit the 'Record Club' variation as an additional release, or just note the differences here? ~ _) (V) (-) 2012
