Description

Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of Love Gun by Kiss, including the original obi and lyric insert.

About this copy: This copy of Love Gun is a 1977 Japanese pressing on the Casablanca label.

The cover is VG++, with slight corner and edge wear.  The obi is VG+, with no tears, but a few wrinkles and a bit of foxing.

The lyric insert is VG+ with slight foxing.  The gun insert is missing.

The disc is M-, aside from a small inaudible mark through “Hooligan.”  The record appears to have only been played once or twice.

Note: This copy does not include a poster.  When this album was first sold in Japan, buyers in some stores were offered a poster as a bonus for buying the LP.  The poster is very rare and sells for $500 or so by itself, but posters were not included with the LPs when they left the factory.

A terrific copy of an album that’s hard to find as a first pressing.

Background: Released in 1977, Love Gun was the sixth studio album by Kiss.  The album reached #4 on the U.S. album charts, making it their first album to reach the U.S. Top Ten.

Allmusic.com gave Love Gun a 4 1/2 star review:

Love Gun was Kiss’ fifth studio album in three years (and seventh release overall, peaking at number four on Billboard), and proved to be the last release that the original lineup played on. By 1977, Kiss merchandise was flooding the marketplace (lunch boxes, makeup kits, comic books, etc.), and it would ultimately lead to a Kiss backlash in the ’80s. But the band was still focused on their music for Love Gun, similar in sound and approach to Rock and Roll Over, their previous straight-ahead rock release.
