Ace Frehley,also known as the Spaceman is better known for his time in KISS,but also managed to have some succes with a solo career as his real name Ace Frehley,and Frehley's Comet.In the 1990s Ace released two compilations wich are "12 Picks" and "Loaded Deck" and before that "Live + 1".In 2006,Frehley releases "Greatest Hits Live" a compilation of 12 tracks containing his best material as selected by himself.How does this compilation do against the other live album that's been released years ago?Is it better or worse?Would this be better than one of the compilations?Greatest Hits Live can be looked at as a good live album as it covers ALL of his career from "Ace Frehley" to "Trouble Walking",wich is the least to say a beggening.The tracks selected for this Live album are good choices and most of them rank as the best Ace did."NY Groove" and "Rock Soliders" are some of them and it also includes some of his work with KISS such as "Cold Gin" and "Deuce".On that point its good what you have on this greatest hits is 12 solid songs wich makes for a good album from start to finnish.Now if you compare it to "Live + 1" it covers more of the KISS songs than "Live +1" so it depends of what you want.The performance is pretty good as far as Frehley gets live the songs sound all great and some are notably better than others such as the excellent "Rock Soliders",a great live song. I think that if you want a live album "Greatest Hits Live" is a good buy and its ainvailable,"Live +1" is harder to find now.Yet i would still pick a compilation instead of a Live album of Ace Frehley,i would recommend getting 12 Picks instead its better and actually half the album,half is studio wich is a nice balance between the two."Greatest Hits Live" is a limited edition with a 3D cover making it a collector's item."Live+1" covers more of his solo career tought,but you can't go wrong with "Greatest Hits Live".

Sad proof of the horrors of alcohol and drug abuse. Just think of how great he could have been. It boggles the mind.

Writing a review of any Ace Frehley release requires you to put aside all "laws of music". He's a very limited singer and songwriter, yet comes up with some of the greatest songs ever written. He's miles away from being the most skilled guitar player out there, yet he has inspired generations of guitarplayers. The thing I like about this release is that it is (mostly) live, where his songs come to life. Some of the performances are sloppy even for Ace, but they still feel right at home. "Rip It Out" from London's Hammersmith Odeon kicks this album off, and ever since "Live+1" came out I've always thought this was THE best version of this song. It even features a great vocal performance from Ace. Then from a high to a low - "Breakout" was never a favourite Ace tune of mine. And in here lies the very problem with this release. Calling it a greatest hits album is a joke, as Ace Frehley only ever had one hit, "New York Groove" on his 1978 solo album. There are fillers enough on this album. Even one of the "bonus" studio tracks is a filler track. BUT the great tracks are awesome. Ace doing Deuce, Cold Gin, Shock Me and New York Groove in addition to the above mentioned Rip it Out makes this compilation worth while. The track "Separate" is also a pleasant surprise.

Despite the positives, there are obvious weaknesses with this album. It doesn't represent Ace at his best. There are no live versions featuring Richie Scarlet, who added tons to Ace and his sound. Tod Howarth, although I do like some of his backing vocals, does not compliment Ace's work at all.. All in all, there's nothing "great" about this "greatest hits" compilation. Nor can it be a best of as it doesn't feature Ace's best work. It's also dissapointing that a great song like "Rock Soldiers" doesnt work live.
