Official Discussion: DLC Week of 4/26 -Roy Orbison 3 pack & KISS live tracks!
The live KISS tracks were both recorded during their 1975 'Dressed to Kill Tour', the same tour that ended up forming the epic 'Alive!' album. The versions we're releasing have actually never been officially released on any album, making this an awesome chance to hear two classic KISS tracks from their definitive live tour!
Roy's songs are the 80's versions from In Dreams: The Greatest Hits, similar to most of his previously released RB tracks.

As a response to questions and comments about the Tommy Tutone re record this week we've tried to increase visibility of some details in this announcement. I dug for some details about the live KISS tracks to help inform purchases, and also included links to the Songs page and the blog with sometimes contains some additional info about recordings.
We don't always want to copy all of that info into the announcement since most people just seem to scan it for bullet points but we can add that little bit of extra info in the case of re records, alternate cuts, live versions, etc. We can also increase the visibility of links to the Songs page and the blog, which are in the announcement every week and also copied in the quote above. Hopefully that's a reasonable compromise of more information but not too much text. Let us know what you think.
