About this album

Ace Frehley is a 1978 solo album from the lead guitarist of American hard rock band Kiss. It was one of four solo albums released by the members of Kiss on September 18, 1978.

“New York Groove” rose to #13 on the US Billboard chart, the highest showing for a Kiss single since “Beth” in 1976, until the song “I Was Made For Lovin’ You” a year later (#11). The album itself reached #26 on the US Billboard album chart. It was certified Platinum on October 2, 1978, when it sold 1,000,000 copies.

The album featured Anton Fig on drums, who would later perform session work on the Kiss albums Dynasty and Unmasked, as well as become a member of Ace Frehley’s post-Kiss band Frehley’s Comet. Fig, along with Will Lee, who played bass on three tracks on this album, would become permanent members of Paul Shaffer’s band on Late Night with David Letterman and The Late Show with David Letterman.

Two tracks from this album, “Rip It Out” and “Snow Blind”, were covered by the Chemical People and Skin Yard respectively on Hard to Believe: Kiss Covers Compilation. The Foo Fighters released a cover of “Ozone” as a b-side to their “I’ll Stick Around” single. The songs “Snowblind” and “Fractured Mirror” were also covered by Dimebag Darrell, who was a huge Ace Frehley fan, epitomized by having the Ace Frehley album cover tattooed onto his chest.

    O mais venenoso álbum solo lançado simultaneamente pelos integrantes do Kiss em 1978. “Rip It Out”, faixa que abre o álbum, tem tanta energia quanto um fã do Kiss pode esperar. A produção é de ninguém menos que Eddie Kramer, e dentre os grandes músicos estão, Anton Fig e Will Lee. O som da gravação é ótimo assim como as composições. Nessa fase dividida da banda, Ace conseguiu registrar grandes momentos, aproveitando a oportunidade de deixar sua marca na história do rock como guitarrista e compositor. Além de “Rip It Out” sao destaques também “Snow Blind”, “Speedin’ Back To My Baby” e o grande hit do álbum “New York Groove”.
