Cat #1
One for All

Cat #1 is the fourth solo studio album released by former Kiss drummer Peter Criss, and first under the band name Criss. Criss re-recorded the Kiss song "Beth" for the album. Unlike the orchestrated original version, the new recording was an acoustic version. The album also features former-Kiss bandmate Ace Frehley playing guitar on three tracks.

In 1993, Criss released a special limited edition preview EP compact disc for the forthcoming album. Three tracks were released on the 1994 CD and two tracks were only available on the limited edition CD. The album was re-released on colored vinyl in 2019 and included the two tracks from the limited edition CD. A CD single was released in Europe in 1998 which included three tracks from the album, including "Beth." A promotional video was produced for "Show Me," which was aired on MTV. The album did not chart in any territory.

For the cover art, it was Criss' idea to paint half of his face in his original Kiss makeup, while leaving the other half plain. The idea was to link past and present.
