Love Theme From Kiss

Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, Peter Criss

The instrumental "Love Theme From KISS" was regularly a part of the band's live set during the club era. Originally part of a larger piece called "Acrobat," the "Love Theme From KISS" section was the first distinct part of the instrumental, with the second half appearing to be something of a jam during gigs. During the recording of the KISS album, the piece was split, simply retaining the instrumental rather than the jam commonly referred to as "Much Too Young." At what stage the song was split remains a mystery...

Producers and band members had refused to comment on whether the full piece was recorded during the album sessions and when the split actually took place. Gene has recently confirmed that the full song was recorded during the first album sessions, but that the producers cut the second part of the instrumental and suggested the change in name of the piece. This possibly helps explain the rather long (25 seconds) fade out of the piece, which would have originally been part of the transition into the jam.
