Notes

This DVD finds two individual VHS tapes that were released in the nineties finding a new home on one single DVD release.

KISS: Konfidential: This was a live concert that featured the Revenge lineup of Simmons, Stanley, Eric Singer & Bruce Kulick. The concert as a whole is good and is also what viewers will find on the CD for Alive III. As the concert plays the band interlaces a lot of backstage and studio banter with the members of the group. Some of it is amusing and some is filler but it is still fun to see KISS in a relaxed manner. With their album Revenge we would find KISS at their strongest with a Hard Rock/Metal record that showed that they were not only back but meant business. I would have preferred that the bantering and discussions be left as a bonus which would allow for the show to be watched alone but this DVD is essentially a straight transfer of the original VHS . There are also 4 full makeup era clips from live shows around 75-77 and those make for fun watching. As you see these you will be like most other fans who are demanding full concert releases of these years. The teaser clips prove to us that they have this footage and it is high time for their release on individual products.

KISS: X-Treme Closeup: This was another documentary piece from KISS that featured a lot of archival footage and historical commentary. Released in 1992 this was done in a more serious fashion than the "Exposed" release that was more "Mock-umentary" that had vintage footage. This one is more to the point and overall the facts were interesting to listen to in the year by year fashion that they used. On this video we find the guys talking a little more about the passing of drummer Eric Carr (who succumbed to cancer in 1991). Gene also discusses where his state of mind was at one point in the bands life and how Paul kept it going despite his unavailability. I prefer them using this format for the interview stuff as all fun aside KISS and its members have had a very interesting career so hearing about them candidly was preferable to me. There are a number of classic/makeup era cuts but they are for the most part edits and not the complete piece. I don't like the teaser aspect of that since I am a big makeup years fan and long for more material from this stage of the bands career. The videos that are included are complete and come from albums like Revenge and Hot In The Shade.
