Remastered re-release of the fifth full-length studio album by legendary American Horror/Glam/Hard Rock band.
“Rock And Roll Over” was recorded at the Star Theatre, and in order to get the proper drum sound, Peter Criss recorded the drum tracks in a bathroom, communicating via video-link with the rest of the band. Criss' vocals are featured on the tracks "Baby Driver" and "Hard Luck Woman". Paul Stanley, who originally wanted the latter song to be sung by Rod Stewart, gave it to Criss, after Gene Simmons insisted Criss sing the song instead.
Although "Hard Luck Woman" did not equal the success of "Beth", it did become another top 20 single for KISS. "Calling Dr. Love" became a concert staple. This is the first Kiss album to not feature a writing credit from Ace Frehley.
KISS is one of the best-selling bands of all the time, having sold more than 75 000 000 records worldwide, including 25 000 000 RIAA-certified albums.
KISS also holds the title as America's #1 Gold record award-winning band of all time, having earned 30 Gold albums. Band has 14 Platinum albums, with three albums being multi-Platinum.
On April 10, 2014, the four original members of KISS were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
KISS was ranked by MTV as the ninth "Greatest Metal Band of All Time", and placed tenth on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list, as well as being ranked as the third "Best Metal and Hard Rock Live Band of All Time" by Loudwire.
"Rock And Roll Over" peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum in USA by RIAA for 1 000 000 copies sold.
“Rock And Roll Over” was re-released in 1997 in a remastered version.
