Remastered re-release of the third full-length studio album by legendary American Horror/Glam/Hard Rock band.
“Dressed To Kill” was produced by Casablanca Records president Neil Bogart, as the label's financial situation at the time did not permit the hiring of a professional producer. Possibly due to the short length of the album, original vinyl versions had long pauses between each track to create the illusion that the sides were longer than they were. Each side ran just 15 minutes, and some of the song times were listed incorrectly on the vinyl versions. For example, "Two Timer" was listed at 2:59 and "Ladies in Waiting" was listed at 2:47.
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.
“Dressed To Kill” peaked at No. 32 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the US and was certified Gold by the RIAA on February 28, 1977. "C'mon and Love Me" and "Rock and Roll All Nite" were released as singles but failed to rise up the charts. A live version of "Rock and Roll All Nite" from "Alive!", issued as a single later that year, reached No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Dressed To Kill” was re-released in 1997 in a remastered version.
