Last time I saw ACe was at the Starland Ballroom in Sayerville, NJ. This time he played a couple of towns east of where I live and it was another fantastic show. Unfortunately, he didn't play anything from "Space Invader" or "Anomaly" (a deluxe edition of that one was released last year). I was even hoping he'd do "Rock and Roll Hell" which he covered on the "Origins, vol 1" covers album from a couple of years back. Plus he didn't do "Breakout" which is 10x with Scarlet on vocals.

This has never been on TTD and you won't ever find this on dime.

This concert was recorded for the radio, but not broadcast.

I want to give credit to fellow collector Kevin Williford (chump329) for supplying this tape.

I transferred this back in early 2011 and it's been sitting on a hard drive ever since.

I figured it was time to get this tape circulated.

Some of you Ace fans might have this, most of you won't.

On a side note, I found this same audio recording posted on youtube and the cut during Ace's solo, is in the exact same place.

As for the quality and mix of this recording. It's mixed like an FM recording, not a soundboard recording.

In some aspects this almost sounds like an audience recording.

If you don't have this date and love Ace, then you'll want this tape in your collection.

Band line-up :
Ace Frehley (guitars/ lead vocals)
Tod Howarth (guitars, keyboards, lead vocals)
Anton Fig (drums)

Okay KISS fans, here's one from the late 80's when ACE was in full force making a strong come back. This isn't too widely circulated, so if you dig some ACE, this is worth a grab.

Very Good to Excellent Quality.

Known as the most hated KISS albums by fans and the rest of the world, the music of « The Elder » still remains interesting.

These sessions has been released (or not) through the years on different formats, sources...
I have reunited them on the same support and gave them a new youth by upgrading the sound.
The first CD gives the opportunity to hear pre-production sessions, with KISS jamming with ideas that mostly won't be used for the album. Ace Frehley didn't really take part of this process and only proposed one track recorded in his studio : « Don't Run », that will become « Dark Light ».
Another curiosity is this « It's my life » recording, a track that will end years after on the Wendy O'Williams album produced by Gene Simmons. This track will finally be recorded by the band for « Psycho Circus » but won't be used for the album (we will discover the final version on the KISS boxset).

The second CD is a great view of the evolution of « Just a boy », presenting the different states of arrangement session after session. For completist only....

These more dynamic versions have never circulated, excepting in my home.
Enjoy KISS ARMY !!
