Overview

Double Platinum is a double-album, 20-track collection that gathers all of Kiss' biggest hits ("Rock and Roll All Nite," "Beth," "Detroit Rock City," "Calling Dr. Love," "Love Gun"), but what makes it an essential retrospective and introduction is that it doesn't overlook key album tracks and concert favorites like "Cold Gin," "Deuce," "Black Diamond," and "She." If "Strutter" was represented by the original version, instead of a pointless 1978 remake -- which was recorded only to entice collectors into buying an album of music they already owned -- Double Platinum would have been a definitive collection, but as it stands, it's simply a very, very good overview.

I actually purchased this when it first came out in '78 & it's still getting spins in my player as I have upgraded to mp3 format, yes I bought it in vinyl originally. There is not one bad track in this disc. If you are getting introduced to Kiss for the very first time this will melt your mind into rock & roll goo & you will never turn back. It not only has every heavy riff, catchy hook, drum rolling, blood spitting image inducing rock song they ever recorded, it also includes their biggest ballad, Beth! If you skip this disc you will have skipped over a huge chapter in the rock & roll bible of 70's era. The Kiss Army has spoken!
