Kiss covers. Not much more to say. I was never a huge fan of Nirvana's track on here, but it's great for completeness. It was never released anywhere else officially (though it appears on a ton of bootlegs). Iconic Seattle label C/Z put this one out in the U.S. Waterfront picked it up in Australia and Europe. There were several vinyl variants. In the U.S., there was a black vinyl version, which came in both a gatefold sleeve and a normal sleeve. Then, there was a pink marble vinyl version - that's the one that gained some value over the years. It has been dropping recently, though. It definitely sells for less than it did a few years back.

In Australia, it was released as a double LP, which came in a gatefold sleeve. There were black and red vinyl variants. The red ones can be a bit expensive and have surpassed the pink marble U.S. ones in value. The European release was on black vinyl and came as a single LP in a gatefold sleeve. I read that some copies altered the Kiss logo so that it looked less Nazi-ish, but I have not seen one of those.
