Extra NOTES :
ca. 1986 -1987 ; Eric Carr - New York (the band) recording session.
After KISS "Animalize" tour in 1985 Eric Carr started branching out into different projects, like looking for other bands to manage and produce. "New York" was one of the bands he had any involvement with. "New York", featuring 'J' (vocals) Johny 'G' Lover (guitars), Freddie Foster (bass) and Rikk Hanz (drums), released one independent EP "Carry The Torch" in 1984 (Tinker\Grand Slamm Records). After the release of the "Carry The Torch" EP, drummer Rikk Hanz was replaced for Michael Constable. 
Michael Constable quit the band prior to going into Millbrook Studios with Eric Carr.
After setting the band up (with new drummer Scott Mills) in a friends studio in upstate New York (for a quick pre-production), Eric Carr went up there for a day and a half to give the band some advice. At the same time he wrote a song together with the band called "Electric Thunder".
