    How d'ya fancy two previously unreleased and uncirculated KISS studio tracks from 1975 bootlegged for your listening pleasure, right here, right now.
    You wanted the best and you got it!
    "Smoke" is a cracking little Rocker which thuds along beautifully before arriving at the ultra-catchy, "It's not the smoke that burns ya, it's the fiiiiire", chorus.
    Nice upfront phased guitar work from the Space Ace on this one too.
    He's from the planet Jendell don'tcha know.
    Oh, and Paul & Gene both sing on the chorus, which makes me feel like i'm 10 years old again.
    I've no idea why this song never saw release, as it shits all over some of the stuff that they issued at the time.
    Anyone remember "Hooligan", for instance?
    The flipside is "A Mistake", which sees the band in an altogether mellower frame of mind.
    I'm guessing that the guys were listening to THE ROLLING STONES "Exile On Main Street", a lot around this time, as this comes off as an attempt at that records loose slightly countrified vibe.
    It's not quite as obvious as "Hard Luck Woman", for instance, but shares a similar sound.
    Again, much stronger than much of the material which sometimes slipped on to Kiss studio albums at the time.
    "Two Timer", anyone?
    I wish i knew more about these songs, but i'm afraid that's as i can tell you.
    I've seen these tracks pop up on a few sites recently, but the sound quality on this rip here is the best i've come across.
    Thanks to the original ripper/poster and to the Slseeker who shared it with me.

    I have a download of the 2 songs, with a few more.

    Here is a cool site with the history of KISS' first record label they were on.
