Album: KissReleased: 1974
Kiss closed their eponymous first album with this track. The band would often play "Black Diamond" as the closing number of their early concerts.
Paul Stanley told Classic Rock magazine: "'Black Diamond' was a song that I wrote about New York. New York was very dear to us, and life there was all we could write about. Seeing hookers on the street, whether we lived it, we saw it and it kind of gave us something to fantasize about."
