Ever since I have been a die hard KISS fan,I have always loved Ace Frehley's guitar playing,and it is a shame that Frehley is no longer a member of KISS (especially after KISS' long-awaited reunion which happened in 1996). However,while it may be sad that Ace Frehley is no longer with KISS and a tad pit pathetic as to how it has taken Frehley over ten years to release his new studio solo album,"Ace Frehley--Greatest Hits Live" is a good album that is worth owning. Most of the live tracks on here (according to what the liner notes of this record say)come from a concert that Ace did with one of his post KISS bands (Frehley's Comet)in England,at which Ace's fellow Comet bandmates (John Regan,Tod Howarth,and Jamie Oldaker)were accompanying Ace in his performance (the only live tracks on here that aren't from the concert in England are "Strangers in a Stange Land" and "Rock Soldiers",which were recorded in Chicago and find Ace performing live alongside John Regan,Tod Howarth,and Anton Fig). The live tracks that are on here sound good--Ace Frehley gave some good guitar work and singing to the live performances of songs that were included on this record,and his band members sounds in top form,as well. I also like the two previously unreleased solo songs from Ace that are on this CD,"One Plus One" and "Give it to me Anyway",which are both catchy and well written songs ("Give it to me anyway" even has Peter Criss performing on it as a guest,as well as former/current Skid Row band members Sebastian Bach,Dave Sabo,and Rachel Bolan),while the limited edition 3-D cover that is accompanying this CD (it shows Ace performing at one of his solo concerts,holding up his smoking Jackson guitar)looks really cool and is a collector's item. My only complaint is that most of the songs that are performed live here are actually KISS songs,which leaves some (but not enough)room for Ace's solo material to be on this CD with this album being issued as a single disc (I would have preferred a two disc set here,to even out live performances of KISS songs and live performances of Ace's solo material),yet everything else here is fine. Hopefully Ace will put out his new studio solo record in the near future,and if you miss the days from when Ace was still with KISS and happen to be one of the several guitarists out there who was inspired to play guitar by Ace himself,this CD will serve as a nice treat for you.
