Julian Gill / Kissfaq.com) :
Track 01 : "Without You Iím
Nothing" was an incomplete song brought in by Gene Simmons for Ace
Frehley to finish for the album. Gene played bass on the recording.
Track 02 : "Rockiní With The Boys" is the alleged title of a song
Ace Frehley is supposed to have written in the post-Elder period, as
mentioned in a Kerrang article during 1982: "While the last few
months have been fairly traumatic for Ace, and no doubt wife
Jeanette, he's still managed to come up with some new songs, seeming
particularly pleased with a freshly written opus called 'Rockin'
With The Boys' (a typical Ace title - no concept here!)"
Track 03 : "Your Wish Is My Command" is a complete song brought in
by Gene Simmons, who also plays bass on the demo recording.
Track 04 : "Bronx Boy" is the
first single from the album, released on
Apr. 27, 2018.
Track 05 : "Pursuit of Rock and Roll", Ace Frehley has previously
mentioned that this was one of his rejected songs from the "Psycho
Circus" album as "Life,
Liberty, & The Pursuit of Rock & Rolll".
It was apparently too similar in lyrical ideas to a couple of Paul's
songs. This may be an update of that demo...
Track 06 : "I Wanna Go Back " is originally written and recorded for
Billy Satellite in 1984, but later covered by Eddie Money.
Extra NOTES 2
Guitar World - November 2018) :
In an interview with
Guitar World Ace Frehley revealed that he recorded a song with
current KISS drummer Eric Singer that didn’t make it onto his new
solo album Spaceman.
Frehley was asked about his instrumental song “Quantum Flux” and
ended up talking about the track he recorded with Singer when he
stated: “Yeah. When it comes to my instrumentals, I don’t really
think about them too much. I just play something and try to make it
evolve into something else. And you know, I had also recorded a
blues song with [current Kiss drummer] Eric Singer for this record,
and that turned out well. But when I was picking songs, I’m kind of
superstitious, and 40 years ago my 1978 solo album came out and that
had nine songs, so I wanted to limit this one to nine songs, too. So
it came down to the instrumental or the blues song and I ended up
dropping the blues song. Because every album I’ve ever released has
had an instrumental on it. So that was the thinking behind that. But
you know, the blues track may end up on a bonus edition.”
