I’m a KISS fanatic, so I’m pleased to have a most excellent reason to write about the band here and now: Amazon is currently selling a bunch of KISS albums for only $5 each in their MP3 album sale, 2,000 MP3 Albums For $5 Each, as well as several CDs for under $5 from their extensive catalog.
I’ve included all of the band’s studio albums released from 1974-1979 (all worth owning!), as well the amazing, awesome, must-have Ace Frehley KISS solo album (the only of the four solo albums really worth owning) as a few from the 1980s. All the listed CDs are “AutoRip,” which means if you purchase the CD, you’ll ALSO get the MP3 version for free; therefore, if the CD is cheaper than the MP3 version, then definitely get the CD, so you’ll get both formats for less. (Note – not every format for every title is on sale, but I’ve listed it here for consistency.) I’ve also included for each album the release date and some of its most famous tunes.
