KISS have announced announced that they will be releasing 'The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982 Box Set' which will contain all 29 singles that the band released on the Casablanca label.
As they look to celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band next year, KISS are set to pay tribute to their formative years with two limited edition collection configurations. Fans can purchase the collections as a box set of either 29 CDs or 7" vinyls.
The sets are housed in a beautiful die-cut shadow box with a limited edition, etched silver metal plate and ribbon-pull magnetic closure, custom KISS 45s box with 26 collectible picture sleeves from original single releases around the world, including Japan, Germany, Holland, Spain and Britain. Both sets also include a booklet which tracks the genesis and chart history of each single represented in the package and four individual KISS masks.
'Even I haven't heard some of this stuff, but this is all part of our master plan to celebrate KISS at this milestone in our careers,' says Gene Simmons. 'This box set represents us at the very beginning of our career, and documents the band's early success and subsequent growth.'
