Extra Notes : (by Julian Gill / KISSfaq)
The album includes a re-recorded version of Fred's Five Satins 1956 hit, "In The Still Of The Night." Vinnie was doing session work at this studio at the time of the recording of this album, so his specific recording contributions are not specified on the credits.
He is mis-creditted on the album as "Vinnie Casano." It's seems likely that any session work was restricted to the songs recorded at Conneticut Recording Studios.
Those tracks are “Tears, Tears, Tears,” “Let My Fingers Do The Walking,” “We’re A Star,” and “In The Still Of The Night”, since the others seem to date from early 1975 while the rest seem to date from the end of that year and the following.
An extended disco version of "Tears, Tears, Tears" exists from 12" singles.

Paul Leka had co-written (with
Dale Frasier and Gary DeCarlo) the 1969 #1 hit "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye," which has become a popular crowd chant at sporting events. Paul Leka owned Connecticut Recording Studios where Vinnie Vincent did session work for Hitchhikers, Black Satin, and other acts.
