Durante los 70´s aunque ya era un formato que estaba en decadencia se editaron estos albums de Kiss en Reel to Reel, el problema fue que los reproductores eran sumamente caros, por lo que nunca tuvo el éxito esperado, además otros formatos mas exitosos y mas económicos como el LP, 8 Track y el Cassette aceleraron su desaparición.

Here you can find the Kiss reel to reel albums that exist, some otheres may exist but theres no prove so far.

The reel-to-reel format was used in the very earliest tape recorders, including the pioneering German Magnetophons of the 1930s. Originally, this format had no name, since all forms of magnetic tape recorders used it. The name arose only with the need to distinguish it from the several kinds of tape cartridges or cassettes which were introduced in the early 1960s. Thus, the term "reel-to-reel" is an example of a retronym.

Reel-to-reel tape was also used in early tape drives for data storage on mainframe computers, video tape machines, and later for high quality analog and digital audio recorders in the 1980s and 1990s, before hard disk recording effectively eliminated the need for reel-to-reel technology.

Studer, Stellavox, Nagra, Denon and Otari are currently making analog reel to reel recorders.

The format was commercially developed in the late 1940s by American audio engineer Jack Mullin with assistance from Bing Crosby. Mullin had been a member of the U.S. Army Signal Corps during World War II. His unit was assigned to investigate German radio and electronics activities and in the course of his duties he acquired two Magnetophon recorders and fifty reels of I.G. Farben recording tape from a German radio station at Bad Nauheim, near Frankfurt. He had these shipped home and over the next two years he worked to develop the machines for commercial use, hoping to interest the Hollywood film studios in using magnetic tape for movie soundtrack recording.
