Escape From The Island

Ace Frehley, Eric Carr, Bob Ezrin

This was KISS' first instrumental since the debut album in 1974. According to Eric the 2:50 instrumental, "Was a jam that me, Ace, and Bob Ezrin did. We got together at Bob's house jamming in his little studio room in his basement. They started pulling things together, and that's how that song came about" (Dark Light, Spring '90). Bob played bass on the recording. This puts the track in a class of its own for not including either Gene or Paul on it, though it would return the use of sirens (in this case air raid versus fire sirens) on a "KISS" song. Initially the song was not included on the Japanese version of "The Elder," and it was instead the B-side to "The Oath" released in that country as a single. The song was included on the Japanese release of "Killers" the following year.
