Peter Criss: (September 18, 1978)

KISSThe album was the weakest selling of all the KISS solo albums of 1978, only reaching #43 on the US Billboard album chart. It did have the distinction of being the only album of the four to have two singles released from it: "Don't you let me Down" and "You Matter to Me".

Criss covered "Tossin' and Turnin'," which was a #1 hit for Bobby Lewis in the US during the summer of 1961.

Much of material on this album was originally written in 1971 for Peter's pre-KISS band Lips
