These sessions has been released (or not) through the years on different formats, sources...
I have reunited them on the same support and gave them a new youth by upgrading the sound.
The first CD gives the opportunity to hear pre-production sessions, with KISS jamming with ideas that mostly won't be used for the album. Ace Frehley didn't really take part of this process and only proposed one track recorded in his studio 'Don't Run', that will become 'Dark Light'.
Another curiosity is this 'It's My Life' recording, a track that will end years after on the Wendy O'Williams album produced by Gene Simmons. This track will finally be recorded by the band for 'Psycho Circus' but won't be used for the album (we will discover the final version on the KISS boxset).

The second CD is a great view of the evolution of 'Just A Boy', presenting the different states of arrangement session after session. For completist only.
These more dynamic versions have never circulated, excepting in my home. Enjoy KISS ARMY !! -Original
