Room Service (Live)

Paul Stanley

Built on source material recorded in Davenport, IA in 1975. Since this would be the first song on the album, the "Alive II" band introduction was pasted on to the beginning of the song making the track length 3:40. One of the biggest debates in fan circles is how much work was done to the "archive" recordings for release on this album. According to Ace, "I was in the studio once, just singing on 'Room Service,' just fixing my part. My vocal was weak on it, so I just strengthened it. I don't think Paul and Gene did much overdubs because it went real quick. We were more concerned with getting the right mix. The problem was, we were under so much pressure, rehearsing and trying to concentrate on the new show and all of a sudden the record company wanted us to put out two new tracks on it, too, as a bonus. We said no" (Wayne Parry). However, it seems apparent that the 1996 tracks differ substantially in essence from the original 1975 sound.
