About this album

Alive II is the second live album (and eighth overall) by American hard rock/heavy metal band Kiss, released in 1977. The band had released three albums (Destroyer, Rock and Roll Over, and Love Gun) since the previous live outing, the seminal 1975 release Alive!, and the band drew upon the variety of new tracks, with Eddie Kramer producing.

Album information

The origins of Alive II go back to early 1977 when the band’s manager Bill Aucoin suggested that Kramer record a live album during the evening show at Budokan Hall in Tokyo, Japan on April 2, 1977. The plan was to release a live album to give Kiss some much deserved time off before recording the album that would become Love Gun later that fall. Kramer finished work on the album, but Casablanca Records and Kiss deemed it unusable, and the band forged ahead with their Love Gun sessions.

Most of the live tracks on Alive II were recorded during the band’s August 26–28 shows at the Los Angeles Forum while on their Love Gun Tour

    I didn't accept the fact of them don't include "Rock And Roll All Nite" in this live album!

    My very first album my parents bought me in 3 grade. Still one of the best live albums I ever heard.

    Em seu segundo álbum ao vivo, o Kiss marca não só a história de sua carreira, como o último álbum antes do declínio criativo da banda, como marca a história do rock americano com a glória de suas extravagâncias. Com uma otíma seleção de músicas dos álbuns Destroyer, Rock n Roll Over e Love Gun, nada poderia dar errado para a “banda mais quente do mundo”. “Alive II” não chegou a ser tão importante na história com o foi primeiro álbum ao vivo da banda, mas com certeza mostra a maturidade tanto dos músicos, como da apresentação, agora mais incrementada ainda. “Shock Me”, “Detroit Rock City” e “Shout It Out Loud” são destaques que marcaram meu coração, e de muitos outros fãs como eu. E nesses trinta e cinco anos não teve momento mais adequado para Paul Stanley gritar “OOHHH YEAAHHH!! I’M THE KING OF THE NIGHT TIME WORLD!!!”

    Larger Than Life è probabilmente il brano piu riuscito del disco. Un disco live ma realmente in studio, con un mucchio di sovraincisioni; dove pero' non mancan episodi ben riusciti: lasciando per un attimo da parte Larger Than Life, mi piace molto la versione del "Dottor Love" così come la Stewardiana "Hard Luck woman".
