Double Platinum was the American rock group’s first greatest hits album originally released in 1978. The album featured remixed titles from previous Kiss records, many differing from the original recordings and in some cases the tracks were re-recorded entirely. The single from the album “Strutter ’78” was a re-recorded version of their original title “Strutter” with a slight disco beat.

Double Platinum is a double-album, 20-track collection that gathers all of Kiss’ biggest hits (“Rock and Roll All Nite,” “Beth,” “Detroit Rock City,” “Calling Dr. Love,” “Love Gun”), but what makes it an essential retrospective and introduction is that it doesn’t overlook key album tracks and concert favorites like “Cold Gin,” “Deuce,” “Black Diamond,” and “She.” If “Strutter” was represented by the original version, instead of a pointless 1978 remake — which was recorded only to entice collectors into buying an album of music they already owned — Double Platinum would have been a definitive collection, but as it stands, it’s simply a very, very good overview. ~~AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
