Day three of the Mike Simonetti tracklist breakdown, today with the first track on the mix by Ace Frehley former lead guitarist and singer from the band Kiss, maybe you´ve heard of them?! Anyways, Kiss put out an album in ´78 and as you see from the cover above the abum was entitled "Ace Frehley" and had him alone on the cover. Why, I don´t know, maybe it was an attempt to give some of the other guys some thunder too. Who knows, but it´s a good album you should check it you have the chance. The lending of thunder didn´t have a huge effect so Ace sought greener pastures and broke from kiss in ´82 to start his own band Frehley´s Comet, but as you probably gather they by no means came close to the success of Kiss. But Ace keeps at it and still tours with Frehley´s Comet.

Nice to see "New York Groove" getting a mention. If I remember rightly, the 1978 Kiss album was a marketing ploy to sell multiple copies to hardcore fans; each band member had his face on the cover, and I know of at least one person who fell over himself in the rush to collect the complete set of four.

Seems unbelievably cynical now!
