Till today there more than 350 (!) KISS bootlegs released on LP, single and CD. These bootlegs usually contain live-recordings or (rare) demo-recordings. Mostly bootlegs are released by fans. The first bootleg LP's where released in a white sleeve with a black/white or colour copy sheet with a picture as cover.
One of the first KISS bootleg LP's was " FRIED ALIVE ", a live recording from 1974 and very rare! This bootleg had many re-releases over the years.
Around 1984 the first KISS bootleg single " KISS KOVERS " was released in a pink sleeve. This 7"-single contains rare live tracks from the Animalize-tour.
One of the first bootleg LP's with a colour picture sleeve was " THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT ". This 2-LP set was released in 1984.
In the next years the quality of the KISS bootleg LP's & singles got better and better. At last they looked like a official release in great package's and disigns, complete with booklets, stickers and more! Some bootleg LP's where released as a picture disc.
With the arrival of the CD in the late 80's the bootleg LP almost disappeared. Only a few KISS bootlegs where released on LP, the most bootlegs got a CD release.
One of the first KISS bootleg CD's was " A CRAZY NIGHT WITH KISS ". This 2-CD set in a colour picture cover was released in 1989.
The quality of the KISS bootleg CD's improved also over the next years and there are some beautiful CD's released. A lot of KISS bootleg LP's are re-released on CD.
With the arrival of the recordable CD-player in the late 90's is collecting of bootleg CD's maybe not so interesting anymore. Because now can anyone make a unique and one of a kind KISS bootleg. You'll not find one of a kind CDR's listed on my pages.
In 2004 KISS & Instant Live came together for their Rock The Nation tour. They released official Instant Live cd's from their concerts, the same day after the show was over, you could bought them. A kind of official KISS-bootleg cd's. You'll find a list of those also on my site.
At the moment there aren't a lot of KISS-bootlegs released on "Silver CD's" anymore! Once in a while there's coming something new, so check this site for updates about (new) KISS bootlegs!
