Mercury Records and UMe have gone beyond the call of duty and created a MASSIVE Kiss vinyl box set to celebrate the band’s 40th Anniversary. Kissteria – The Ultimate Vinyl Road Case will contain 34 vinyl LPs alongside a plethora of memorabilia items.

First time on LP

The vinyl LPs include 19 studio albums, five Alive releases and six exclusive pressings for this box: Double Platinum, Greatest KISSKILLERS, You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best, Smashes, Thrashes & Hits and KISS Symphony: Alive IV. 

All the vinyl packaging will replicate the originals with (where applicable) special features like embossing, sticker sheets, posters, and lenticular covers.

Additional bonus items include twelve large (11”x17”) posters, KISS vinyl cleaning cloth, KISS turntable mat, KISS dominoes set, four band lithos and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

The Road Case packed with vinyl and memorabilia

This set is newly remastered and weighs in at almost 50 pounds. It will be shipped in two batches: the Road Case loaded with some of the LPs and the KISS-related merchandise goes out at the end of June and the rest of the LPs, including the ones exclusive to the box, will be send out at the beginning of August.

This ludicrously excessive set has a price to match – $1750!

    i am not sure i follow the “exclusive” part of some of the pressings, as i have the vinyl of Smashes, Thrashes & Hits, as i suspect many do.

    does this simply mean that the non-exclusives either are or have been reissued on their own anyway?

    and wasn’t there a PC game of PsychoCircus?

  2. Michel says:

    why.. ? because its KISS !

  3. Si says:

    What! It’s not even signed! For that money i think i’d want the band to deliver the box personally … Wow, i was only saying that £299 was a bit steep for a deluxe box … Still, for Kiss fans, i hope they have big wallets, does look nice though … ;-)

  4. Simon says:

    I have Smashes, Thrashes and Hits on vinyl too Lee. And Double Platinum so I’m not sure how exclusive they are…

  5. Thom says:

    I think the exclusive editions are the titles that haven’t been re-pressed as part of the new individual Kiss remasters that are due for release soon.

    Disappointed that with all that cost, they couldn’t stretch to including a complete discography; most obvously they’re missing Sonic Boom, and to a lesser extent the Kiss Klassics/Jigoku-Retsuden album of re-recorded material by the current lineup, and the remixed Destroyer Resurrected.

  6. LedMan says:

    Does look nice! Hopefully the folks who put this project together also focused on quality vinyl as well as sound.

  7. Richie says:

    Kiss? My Arse!

  8. John says:

    KISS doesn’t ever do anything small.

  9. Andy says:

    First we had marbles now we have dominoes. What’s next, a Jethro Tull vinyl discography box that features artwork themed conkers?

    There is evidently a label-wide bet going on as to who can produce the most over-priced box set that features a band themed traditional game for no apparent reason.

    They should start thinking inside the box rather than outside it at their meetings and then fans won’t be so bemused when they see what extras they are paying for.

  10. Tony says:

    Wow–I count myself as one of their fans and even I think this is a ripoff.
    They put on a great show, but does the quality of their recorded material justify this over-the-top, super-expensive box set? I’ll pass.

  11. Paul Kent says:

    Ordered!!!

    ….not really

  12. Tim says:

    Mmmmm Jethro Tull conkers. Where do I sign up?..!

    I might get the individual vinyl reissue of the first album and Alive II to go with the Universal reissue of Alive that I already have but then that’s me done on the Kiss front I think…

  13. SimonP says:

    I wouldn’t pay $17.50 for that personally…

  14. Darren says:

    hey there and thank you for your info – I have
    definitely picked up something new from right here.
    I did however expertise some technical issues
    using this web site, as I experienced to reload the
    site lots of times pprevious to I could get it to load properly.

    I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but
    slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google
    and can damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look
    out for a lot more of your respective interesting content.
    Make sure you update this again very soon.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on when. Regards

  16. Wow! Finally I got a webpage from where I know how to actually take useful facts regarding my
    study and knowledge.

  17. I do believe all of the concepts you have offered in your post.

    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very quick for starters.

    May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

  18. The signs of the sickness are not all distinctive to the disease and there are other causes of poor balance, akin to
    arthritis, spinal disk illness and blindness, but none of these illnesses
    present all of the indicators listed above, and sadly are past the scope of this
    text. Vets name these peripheral (outside the brain), or central (inside the brain) vestibular illness.
    Peripheral vestibular illness is rather more common than central vestibular
    illness. Try not panic over your dog’s vestibulitis.
