Wicked Lester was an early incarnation of Kiss..... The picture probably gave that one away. The best way I can describe this is Peter, Paul and.... Gene trying their hand at some AM solid gold. Kinda sounds like old Doobie Brothers but better, sometimes folky and sometimes garage-y, the arrangements here are based on a more advanced but less straight foward formula than Kiss. It's not great but it's definitely enjoyable. Summertime lemonade drinkin' type stuff. These songs are some demos recorded in 1971 and feature some songs that later found their way into the Kiss repertoire.
