The Original Wicked Lester Sessions.

Wicked Lester (1972). Album by Wicked Lester.

The unreleased Wicked Lester album (and its artwork) was bought by Kiss' label, Casablanca, in 1977 so that Columbia wouldn't cash in on Kiss' success by releasing the aborted record (which also included pictures of Simmons and Stanley without makeup), but bootleg copies of the album eventually began making the rounds in fan circles. 2001 saw the appearance of the first officially released Wicked Lester tracks ("Keep Me Waiting," as well as the aforementioned "She" and "Love Her All I Can") on Kiss' self-titled, five-disc box set. ~ Greg Prato.

Whereas Wicked Lester's original sound was rooted in varied musical styles, including folk and pop, when Simmons and Stanley decided to recruit new members, they made the decision to focus on a more aggressive and simple style of rock and roll. In November 1972, the group arranged a showcase with Don Ellis, the Epic Records executive who earlier had rejected Wicked Lester's album. While one Epic executive, Tom Werman, was impressed by the power and theatrics of this new incarnation of Wicked Lester, Ellis once again turned them down. As Ellis was leaving, Peter Criss's brother, who was drunk, vomited on his foot. In early December, Paul Stanley placed an ad in The Village Voice stating, "LEAD GUITARIST WANTED with Flash and Ability.

It is the full Wicked Lester album from the same source tape used for the 2001 Box Set. It is the best sounding and definitive version of this unreleased album.

Extra NOTES :

"Too Many Mondays" and "Sweet Ophelia" were songs originally released on Barry Mann's 1971 LP, "Lay It All Out", and were covered the same year by Wicked Lester. While Barry did better as a song writer, usually with his wife Cynthia Weil, or Gerry Goffin (co-writters on each of the tracks respectively), his own recordings didn't do so well. What is interesting, from the point of KISStory, is that the audio engineer at Electric Lady Studios, where the album was recorded, was one Ron Johnson, later the producer of the Wicked Lester album.

The Hollies song "I Wanna Shout" (covered by Wicked Lester as "We Want To Shout It Out Loud") closed their 1970 album "Confessions Of The Mind" and is from one of their more obscure albums.
