one is something else sweetheart" and "Introducing the KISS
that gets you angle. KISS - a new group, a new album - on Casablanca Records..." (1 min.)

* KISS Day at Cadillac, MI on Oct. 9 & 10, 1975. KISS appeared at the Cadillac High homecoming. The memorable event was an example for Rock Steady's creativity in breaking the band to a wider audience. The initial idea for the invitation came from the coach of the Highschool Football Team who played KISS songs during matches for motivation. As the team became successful he contacted the band, resulting in Cadillac's "KISS Day".

Recordings are from the concert at Cadillac High School Auditorium on Oct. 9. It starts with a Meet & Greet with fans backstage, followed by an interesting soundcheck featuring various takes of Room Service and Communication Breakdown by Led Zep. Kids who appeared in KISS makeup were allowed to attend at this warm-up.

The songs: Deuce, Strutter, Got To Choose, Hotter Than Hell, Ace's smoking guitar solo and a cut version of Nothin' To Loose.

Please note that this is an audience recording for fans only with an overall length of 32 min.
