fake WRMB 385 + 386: kiss ‘First Kiss In Long Island’ + ‘FRIED ALIVE!’ :IDOL MIND PROD. 1113 / ‘Second Kiss In Long Beach’

Kiss First Kiss 385

Slip sheets exists in the following colors: Vanilla/Black; Mint Green/Black A4 insert paper and Pink/Black A4.

Found on either blank labels of different colors or World Records labels, pointing all fingers at Ken.

Kiss FKILI World

A copy of Vicky Vinyl’s Fried Alive! release on her own Idle Mind Productions label. First releases came in a number of PVC colors, just as Wizardo’s did:

Kiss Fried_Alive all colors

Kiss Fried Alive

Source: Long Beach Auditorium, 31 May, 1974 KNAC Broadcast (KISS opened for Savoy Brown and Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at this show):  Intro & Deuce, Nothing To Lose, She & Ace Frehley Solo, Firehouse, Strutter, 100,000 Years, Black Diamond. The last track on side 2 is supposedly from the Hammersmith Odeon in London, 16 May 1976 and not San Diego ’76.

The WRMB copy sounds noticeably inferior due to introduced distortion. Nevertheless, copies still fetch remarkable prices up to this day (a copy rated “acceptable” selling for 71 Euros after attracting more than 20 bids just in May of 2013). Similarly, Fried Alive! is still re-issued and in print (by other enterprising bootleggers) as a vinyl bootleg in 2013 as well. Vicky Vinyl had created not only one of the earliest (if not the earliest) Kiss bootlegs but also a landmark title that has held up 40 years later.

Release dates: Obviously mid-/second half of 1976 for Fried Alive! and my guess would be 1977 for Ken’s copy job.

Also on blank labels, as usual.
