Collecting KISS cassette tapes (MC5) is definately a niche area of which there are not a tremendous amount of collectors, but quite an interesting spread of items available of interest. Not least are the alternative Argentinian version of "Revenge," promo cassettes, and single-tape versions of double-albums. And the artwork. We'll attempt to catalogue just what is available. Contributions, comments, clarifications, and collaboration is always welcomed. Please contact the Webmaster
