Parade by Prince and the Revolution was released on March 31, 1986. It was the eighth album from Prince and the third and last album where he shared billing with The Revolution. The record went platinum and went to #3 on the album charts.
While it may have sold a good deal less than his last several albums, it did contain one of his biggest hits. Kiss was a smash hit that went to #1 and the accompanying music video became an instant MTV classic. If you are a serious fan, where does this album fall on your best to worst list from Prince?
Love Gun, by Kiss, was released on this day, June 30, back in 1977. The album contained such Kiss classics as Love Gun, Christine Sixteen, Shock Me, and I Stole Your Love. The album was released at the height of the band’s popularity and went on to sell over a million copies. The somewhat controversial single, Christine Sixteen hit #25 on the top forty charts.
The album is noted for being the band’s first album to feature each member on lead vocals. It was also the last studio album to have Peter Criss play drums on every song. Love Gun was produced by Eddie Kramer as were four other albums by the band. He was also the producer for three solo albums by Kiss Guitarist Ace Frehley.
