Kiss – Special Kiss Album For Their Summer Tour (1976)

In the further adventures of my box full of vinyl, there was yet another Kiss collectible included that I cherish deeply.  It was a 33 1/3 Vinyl Single in support of their tour for the 1976 Destroyer Tour.  I believe the album was released to radio stations for promo and not available for resale.  I actually know it was not available for resale because it says it on the Label of the album.

The album jacket actually says “Not For Resale”, but has been removed from my cover…very strange. The person that removed it was very careful and didn’t cut fully through the front cover…see below.

The B-Side of the single is also “Flaming Youth” which I find interesting because the true B-Side of the Single released for the album was “God of Thunder”.  Both sides of the disc say Side A. Maybe I have a nice collectors piece…if so, I wish it was in better shape.

And it was also interesting to read how the song was brought together…
