The HOH has scored 15 copies of the book “And Party Every Day: The Inside Story of Casablanca Records” by Larry Harris. Larry was a co-founder and senior VP of Casablanca, the label that defined the 1970s, and this is the only definitive, firsthand look at Casablanca’s remarkable story. He’s got some amazing stories about the early years of KISS, the unjustly-overlooked Angel, and the rest of the 1970s music scene. There’s a lot of great KISS material in the book (including some never-before-seen photos, like their 1973 audition for Casablanca). Everyone who wins the book will also win a CD copy of Kiss’ “Gold” and a CD copy of Angel’s “Anthology”.

About the Book
“Even in the bacchanal of 1970s Los Angeles, the drug and promotional excesses of Casablanca Records stood out. In a period when cocaine use was probably at its peak in the music business, Casablanca set the pace…” — Encyclopedia Britannica
In the 1970s, America was a banquet of hedonism and self-indulgence, and no person or company in that era of narcissism and druggy gluttony was more emblematic of the times than Casablanca Records and its magnetic founder, Neil Bogart.
From Bogart’s daring first signing, the positively pyrotechnic KISS; through the discovery and superstardom of Donna Summer, the Village People, and funkmaster George Clinton and his circus of freaks, Parliament Funkadelic; to the label’s descent into the manic world of disco and its attendant vices, And Party Every Day charts Casablanca’s meteoric rise and eventual collapse. Written with great candor and humor by Larry Harris, Casablanca’s cofounder and former senior vice president and managing director, And Party Every Day is the only definitive, firsthand look at Casablanca’s remarkable story and a breathtaking view of ambition, greed, excess, and that great American era of extravagance. It features never-before-seen photos, including KISS’s 1973 audition for Casablanca and candid backstage shots.
Larry Harris began working for Buddah/Kama Sutra Records in the summer of 1971 as the local New York promotions man, and in 1973 joined his cousin Neil Bogart in founding Casablanca Records. He became senior vice president and managing director of the company in 1976 and left Casablanca in the fall of 1980. Larry was born in New York and now lives and works in Seattle. Curt Gooch served as executive producer and creative consultant on Inside the Casbah, a documentary about Casablanca Records. He is the coauthor, along with Jeff Suhs, of KISS Alive Forever: The Complete Touring History.
