February 4 : BALANCE CD reissue - feat. Paul Stanley backing vocals
From: Rock Candy Records / Kiss Related Recordings
AMERICAN EAST Coasters, Balance were a mini super-group of sorts. Pride of place was taken by vocalist Peppy Castro a man whose CV boasted commercially successful stints with late sixties psych legends the Blues Magoos, pop rockers Barnaby Bye and an obscure but influential hard rock band called Wiggy Bits. Guitarist Bob Kulick had built a solid reputation as a super-session player contributing to diametrically opposed talent as Diana Ross and Kiss. Third man on board was yet another session wunderkind; that’s keyboard wizard Doug Katsaros.
Enlisting the help of NYC powerhouse managers Leber/Krebs and signing to the impressive Portrait label, a division of Columbia Records, Balance looked set to bulldoze their way into the hearts and minds of music fans coast to coast. Indeed, for a few exciting weeks the project looked set to explode when the track ‘Breaking Away’ caught fire at radio, reaching the dizzy heights of #22 on the US chart. Sadly, however, the momentum quickly dissolved leaving the band unable to capitalize on their good fortune.

24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album and a new interview and full involvement from the band. Additional photos and memorabilia spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.

Track Listing: 1. (Looking For The) Magic 2. I’m Through Loving You 3. Breaking Away 4. No Getting Around My Love 5. Fly Through The Night 6. American Dream 7. Haunting 8. Falling In Love  (featuring Paul Stanley - uncredited background vocals) 9. Hot Summer Nights 10. It’s So Strange

February 4 : Eric Carr co-written NEW YORK demo online stream
From: Kiss Related Recordings /
After KISS "Animalize" tour in 1985 Eric Carr started branching out into different projects, like looking for other bands to manage and produce. "New York" was one of the bands he had any involvement with. "New York", featuring 'J' (vocals) Johny 'G' Lover (guitars), Freddie Foster (bass) and Rikk Hanz (drums), released one independent EP "Carry The Torch" in 1985 (Tinker\Grand Slamm Records). 
After setting the band up in a friends studio in upstate New York (for a quick pre-production - ca. 1986 -1987), Eric Carr went up there for a day and a half to give the band some advice. At the same time he wrote a song together with the band called "Electric Thunder". 
Now you can hear "Electric Thunder", which streams @
