ACE FREHLEY related songs on "The Vault" in chronologically order :

demoed at Magna Graphic Studios, New York City - July 1975
disk 03 - track 06 - Mad Dog [with Ace Frehley & JR Smalling]
disk 04 - track 08 - Man Of 1,000 Faces #2 [with Ace Frehley & JR Smalling]
disk 04 - track 10 - Bad, Bad Lovin’ (Calling Dr. Love) [with Ace Frehley & JR Smalling]

Three of the several demo’s recorded at the Magna Graphic Studios, New York City in preparation for KISS fourth studio album, with Ace Frehley on guitar and JR Smalling on drums. "Mad Dog" was previously released on the 2001 KISS “Boxset”, but "The Vault" version have an improved master.
The "Bad, Bad Lovin'" demo is basically the “Calling Dr. Love” chords before Gene had the “Calling Dr. Love” lyrics and chorus. Previously released on the 2001 KISS “Boxset”, albeit with the ending section shortened.


"Psycho Circus" demo's  & recording sessions 1997 - 1998
disk 02 - track 02 - Weapons (Power To Raise ....) [1998 - Singer/ Kulick/ Frehley]
disk 02 - track 09 - In Your Face [1998 - with Ace Frehley on lead vocals]

While “Weapons” was considered for the 1998 “Psycho Circus” album, Gene Simmons offered the song to Ace Frehley to sing. Ace Frehley didn’t like the lyrics, and rewrote it. The "Weapons (Power To Raise The Dead)" version features Ace Frehley vocals to the original backing track (with Eric Singer and Bruce Kulick).

Gene Simmons wanted Ace Frehley to sing the song "In Your Face", Ace Frehley wasn’t keen on Gene’s lyrics and rewrote them. The version on “The Vault” is an alternate take, and is not the same version as the bonus track on the Japanese KISS "
Psycho Circus" album, and the "Non-album Bonus Track" on various versions of the KISS "We Are One" CD-single.
