In 1973, KISS signed its first record deal with the newly-formed Casablanca Records. KISS was the first band signed to the upstart label, which helped launch the success of the hottest band in the world.

After seeing KISS play a showcase concert at Le Tang’s ballet studio, Casablanca founder Neil Bogart quickly offered KISS a record contract. From 1974 to 1982, Casablanca Records released 29 KISS singles on 45 RPM records. These singles were released for sale to the public, used for commercial radio airplay and to promote album sales. In many cases, as a bonus to the fans who already owned the record albums, many of these singles featured entirely different mixes, edits, and material that did not appear on any album. These musical snapshots of KISS’ formative years have never been released in a commemorative singles edition until now.

Out of the 29 singles featured in the boxset, there are 26 highly collectable picture sleeves from original single releases around the world and a 36 page booklet with unreleased photos plus track annotations by Keith Leroux, Captain of KISSOnline.com, and Jill Cataldo.

Gene, Paul, Ace & Peter each released solo albums in 1978 for Casablanca. Each of their 4 respective singles were released in the UK in color vinyl and with a mask for each member. These 4 singles are reissued here in this collection with the 4 masks and in the color vinyl, red, blue, green and purple like they were originally released in 1978.
