On this day in 1975, KISS released their highly acclaimed fourth album, KISS ALIVE! Considered by most to be one of the greatest live recordings of all time, the album has received a considerable amount of criticism over the years regarding the number of overdubs that were added to it in post-production.

:s_laugh:

Ahhhh, my achey breaky ass. By that standard, any live album that wasn't captured to two track on the night should be drawing criticism. And that is most of them, since ninety-nine times out of a hundred the shows are captured to multitrack sessions and taken to recording studios to be tinkered with, manipulated, run through the desquonkier half a dozen times, often taking months if not years before the "live" performance gets to see the record shelves.

If the notion of adding and/or replacing errors in the show's performance bothers you, why would any other aspect of the production be any different? What you would have heard on the night is not what you get to hear through your stereo a home, nor should it be. Your neighbours would complain bitterly if you started shaking their foundations with it, which is what you would need to do if you were supplied with a tape straight from the public address mixing desk (in the case of an arena gig) or a couple of well placed mikes (in the case of halls and auditoriums).

People that whinge and moan about the addition of a few instruments are mental. "Live" is but a word... and I say that as an engineer who prefers to record live perfomances, both off the stage and in the studio.

Now, with that out of the way...

Today marks the 92nd anniversary of the first demonstration of the long-playing record (LP) by none other than the RCA-Victor company. And it flopped. Badly. The record players themselves were being sold for close to $1500 in todays money, which is kind of an ask in the middle of a depression, especially since there was already a widely produced format being made out if Indian bugshit. Fun fact: the word "album" (as it applies to vinyl records) actually comes from the practice of issuing multiple shellac records in booklets. Like photo album, only with records, not pictures.

Fifty-six years ago, The Doors were banned from The Ed Sullivan Show after agreeing not to sing the line "Girl, we couldn't get much higher", then singing it live to air anyway. Two years later (1969) the media assured us all the Paul McCartney was in fact dead, having supposedly died in a car accident two Novermbers prior and hauling up all manner of alleged cryptic references from The Beatles ouvre to support their conspiracy claims.

Finally, we lost English Singer/songwriter Frankie Vaughan (aged 71) on this day in 1999 due to cardiac arrest. The guy had penned a string of hits in the 1950s which included "Green Door". A year later and Paula Yates cashed her chips after imbibing too much trendy chemical amusement aids (and good fucking riddance too, the bitch had played what some regard as a pivotal role in Michael Hutchence's suicide by hanging) and in 2006 guitarist Al Casey left us at the tender age of 69 (dude). A session member of the Wrecking Crew, his recording credits included names like The Beach Boys, Phil Spector, Elvis Presley, Glen Campbell, The Association, The Monkees, Johnny Cash, Simon And Garfunkel, 5th Dimension, Harry Nilsson, The Partridge Family, Frank Sinatra, and Nancy Sinatra. Rock in peace, you glorious motherfucker you!
Her fucking fupa looked like a pair of ass cheeks... like someone naked ran into her head first and got stuck. She was like "come eat me out" and I was like "nah I think I'll go snort some anthrax and light myself on fire instead"

LOL! That dumb assed carpet muncher wouldnt have won if he wasnt out partying for a week straight. Word on the street was that he had gambling debts to the mob. I dont believe he threw the match but I do believe he was in no shape to play it at the time.

The first episode of the Munsters aired on this day in 1964.
