Unofficial Video. The audio is a mix of both versions of "Double Platinum" & "Rock n Roll Over"

Double Platinum is the first greatest hits album by the American hard rock band Kiss.

Many of the songs on Double Platinum were remixed and significantly differ from their original versions. In the case of "Strutter," it was re-recorded with a slight disco beat and dubbed as "Strutter '78." Other songs ("Hard Luck Woman," "Detroit Rock City") had sections completely removed, while the beginning of "Black Diamond" was repeated at the end, fading out at the start of the first verse and giving the song a "wrap around" feel. Sean Delaney stated that it took eleven days to remix and re-edit the songs.[citation needed]

The original vinyl release, in a gatefold-sleeve, had an embossed, silver-foiled sleeve, with the band members in bas-relief inside. The album was packaged with a printed "Platinum Award" thanking the Kiss Army for making the band a "Double Platinum Success". Later reissues would retain the gatefold-sleeve but replaced the logo with a printed, red-type version and the band members were now represented inside by photos rather than the bas illustrations. When the album was remastered for CD in the US it mimicked the original vinyl.

The album was certified Platinum on May 16, 1978 by the RIAA.Ironically it never reached Double Platinum status. In Canada it was certified Gold on June 1, 1978 after selling 50,000 copies

Rock and Roll Over is the fifth studio album by Kiss. Rock and Roll Over was the first Kiss album to ship Gold and would eventually rise to Double Platinum status. It was certified Platinum on January 5, 1977, when it sold 1,000,000 copies and peaked at number 11 on the Billboard pop albums chart.

The album was recorded at the Star Theatre, and in order to get the proper drum sound, Peter Criss recorded the drum tracks in a bathroom, communicating via video-link with the rest of the band. Criss's vocals are featured on the tracks "Baby Driver" and "Hard Luck Woman." Paul Stanley, who originally wanted the song to be sung by Rod Stewart, gave it to Criss, after Gene Simmons insisted Criss sing the song instead. Although the single did not equal the success of "Beth," it did become another Top 20 single for the group. "Calling Dr. Love" would go on to become a concert staple, being played on just about every tour since the album's release.

The cover artwork was created by artist Michael Doret who worked with Kiss again on their 2009 album Sonic Boom.

Rock and Roll Over is one of only two Kiss studio albums not to feature a single sung by Paul Stanley with other being 1974 Hotter Than Hell.
