Track 01 -02 : written in the spring of 1984.

Track 06 : Words and music originally written by Carter Cathcart (former The Laughing Dogs keyboardist and guitarist).

Track 09 : cover version of the classic R&B hit, further details unknown.

Track 10 : cover version of Jeff Paris. The original version can be found on his 1987 album "Wired Up" (Polygram / Mercury 832 188-2-Q-1).

Track 13 : "We Got Your Rock" is originally written by Marty Kupersmith (aka Marty Sanders) in 1983. When Frehley's Comet took up the song there may have been changes made to this song.

Track 15 : written by Mark David, Barney Williams and Burt Bacharach. 
This song is recorded my many artists before including The Beatles and The Carpenters.
In 1990 Ace Frehley would demo the song again with vocalist Mary Ann Scandiffio (Black Lace, Bang Gang).

Track 17 : cover version of Russ Ballard. The original version can be found on his 1984 self titled album (USA: EMI America/Capitol ST-17108) (Europe: EMI/Electrola 538-7 91663-1/2).

Track 18 : "Words Are Not Enough" is based on an earlier composition Jim Keneally had written on his own in 1980.

Track 19 : sounds similar in style, lyrically, to Frank Zappa's "Dancin' Fool".

Track 21 : written by Ace Frehley and Marty Kupersmith (aka Marty Sanders) in 1985. It's not clear if "You Make It Hard For Me" is demoed at the time. Parts of the song would be recycled in 1998 when Ace Frehley wrote a song with the same title with ex- Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach.
