Found RLH via a Facebook ad and decided to give them a try. I wasn’t disappointed. Fast shipping and great communication through out, even got a personalised note. Support a small business and pay less than at JB. Win-win.

Why you need this Vinyl album…

Amongst Ace’s post-KISS recorded output, Spaceman might be the closest link to his widely acclaimed 1978 solo record, both in spirit and execution. First off, Frehley played all of the guitar parts on Spaceman, as well as bass on all but two songs. Longtime drummer Anton Fig, whose friendship with Ace began in that 1978 record, also appears on ‘Off My Back’ and ‘Pursuit of Rock and Roll’ (longtime collaborators Scot Coogan and Matt Starr also play drums on Spaceman).

There’s also a thematic, almost biographical, thread running through the album of a long life in rock ’n’ roll, although Ace admits it wasn’t intentional. The first single ‘Bronx Boy’ lays out Ace’s pre-KISS roots, running wild with an Irish street gang called the Ducky Boys. It might be his grittiest song to date, with an opening riff that lashes out like a switchblade. ‘Pursuit of Rock and Roll’ ticks off a list of rockers that made Ace who he is, including Little Richard and the Stones.

Frehley also makes it clear that rock is truly all he needs: ‘So sick of looking at reality TV / and like the Beatles said, you gotta ‘Let It Be.’’ ‘No need to worry, I’ll be home soon, ’cause I’m rockin’ with the boys,’ Frehley sings on ‘Rockin’ With the Boys,’ which tells the tales of life on the road.
