Not widely circulated, the Philadelphia tape has one of the few live recordings of 'Room Service'.

Captured from the audience on the Dressed To Kill Tour which started on March 19th, 1975 in Northampton, Pennsylvania and ended on August 28th, 1975 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This is a special one because it has one of the rare live versions of "Room Service", in fact a lot of websites don't even list "Room Service" as having been played on this tour!
This recording is heavy on the bass, which isn't bad because it's not distorted like some boots, and everything can be heard pretty clearly, so over-all it's not too bad. Sounds like the recorder wasn't right upfront, but you get a great idea of the power KISS have live, something their studio albums just wasn't capturing.
A great little mix of songs from the first three albums, plus as a bonus we get a few tracks from the well-circulated "Rock And Roll Over" rehearsal tape from the Fall of 1976. -Original
