New KISS Alive box set for $1.49?

More KISS news. As I was on my way into work Piccu called me and told me something interesting. Today KISS released a new box set called Alive 1975-2000. It is a collection of their first three Alive! albums and a previously unreleased Alive IV album. It's roughly 70 songs.

Piccu looked it up on iTunes probably to listen to a little bit of the songs that he had never heard before. However he noticed something odd. On iTunes the entire album that consists of 4 discs if you buy it at a store was only $1.49. Piccu likes to buy the CDs whereas iTunes is good enough for me.

So I bought all 70 songs for $1.49 instead of $25 or $30 it like ultimately will be. Also note that individual songs off the set are 99 cents. So for 50 cents extra you can have 69 more songs.

I don't know what the deal is, but if I get an invoice in my email for anything other than $1.49 I'm going to fight it. I took a screen shot of iTunes so I have that as proof.

Anyway, as of this writing, if you like KISS you can get a boatload of them for a buck and a half if you act now. LOL

Haven't gotten an invoice from iTunes yet, but as of 12:09 a.m. Wednesday the KISS Alive! 1975-2000 box set has jumped from $1.49 to $39.96.

Another odd thing is that there are certain songs on albums that you sometimes can only get if you buy the entire album.

Well when I bought it there were two songs that were labeled "album only" and now there are three totally different songs labeled "album only."

I just hope I don't end up paying 40 bucks for this thing. I'll bet they give me iTunes credit on the extra cash they charge me. That's how they get their hooks in ya.

Take It Off and Rock and Roll All Nite are listed as unreleased singles on the set I bought at Wal-Marts. As for why 100,000 Years is album only, I have no idea.

With tax... $1.58.

Tee hee!

I haven't seen it on I-tunes as of yet, but will check it out. If they try to charge you more than $1.49 you can fight it as THAT WAS OBVIOUSLEY A TYPO ON THEIR END.

It turns out that I'm thinking they won't play on my iPod shuffle, which sucks. But there is more than one way to skin a cat, as the saying goes.
