Alive? Legendary. Alive II? Pretty good. Alive III? A nice representation of the non-makeup years that had a nice mix of 70s, 80s, and 1992’s Revenge album. I really like this era of KISS a lot. They ditched the day-glo tights and sequined jackets for black leather jackets and pants.

Of course, most (if not all) live albums are touched up in the studio, KISS live albums especially, and this seems to the case here once again. Out of all the Alive albums, this one to me comes off as the most polished.

Still a fine album, you can’t really go wrong with KISS live. This was also my first introduction to “I Was Made For Lovin’ You”. The live version of that has always been superior to the studio version, which is pretty wimpy.

Produced by: Eddie Kramer & KISS

Highlights: “Creatures of the Night”, “I Just Wanna”, “Heaven’s On Fire”, “I Was Made For Lovin’ You”, “Lick It Up”, “Forever”

    Wow. You didn’t hear that song until the ’90s?
    I was given the “Dynasty” LP as a X-mas present in 1979.

    Have you ever heard “I Was Made For Lovin’ You (Rock version)” from the 1989 Japan-only “Chikara” album?
    I think that’s the best version of this song.
