Never before released titles involving members of KISS and Wicked Lester.
Musician, Gordon G. G. Gebert (Author of the hit books KISS & Tell and KISS & Tell MORE! available through Amazon.com) leads this project with drummer/singer/producer Michael Sciotto.
A new version of the KISS title She with Ron Leejack (former Wicked Lester guitarist) playing rhythm guitar and belting out the lead vocal makes the Still Wicked CD a must listen.
Song writer Kerry Scott penned tune Bodies Talking features MaryAnn Scandiffio (Black Lace) handling lead vocals with a special appearance by hot-shot studio guitarist Nick Moroch on lead guitar. Nick provided his much sought after lead guitar talent on She also. Instrumental Cajun Rain written by Ron Leejack creates an instant imagery. Harmonica and slide guitars complete this Bayou country feel.
Gebert's version of a lost Bloodrock classic called D.O.A. is a superb re-make as the eeriness of this rock title will send shivers up your spine.

1: SHE - Great version of the classic KISS cut. It's punchy and well played. Crank it up!
2: BODIES TALKING - If you like 80's rock it's a rocker but with musical subliminal nuances. Not cheesey straightforward crap. Dated but good.
3: CAJUN RAIN - I just picture this song in a movie sound track. Sort of like Midnight Cowboy. Creates a feeling. It's a shame the harmonica player, Polio Peach Adams, died right after this recording. I heard it was the last recording he ever did.
4: D.O.A. - I love this song. It's eery, morbid and another song that just creates a mood. The keyboards are cool. The words are sick. The singer is not up to the musical performance. The mix is not consistent with the rest of the CD. I wonder why? But still a great cut.
5: SAM - LOL - great lyrics. I bet Gebert dedicated that song to his buddy Ace Frehley.
6: ROCKER ROOM THEME - This song is only 45 seconds long. The explanation I heard is that it was a television theme song that Gordon Gebert and Ace Frehley recorded together when they were working together. It definitely is classic Ace Frehley guitars on this recording. Just leaves you wanting to hear more. I'm glad I got the CD for this cut alone. Rare performance from Ace.
Overall this CD is definitely worth purchasing. I recommend it. I want to hear more from Gebert and crew.
I did some research and found it here on Amazon.com. Well worth getting just for the obscure track Ace Frehley plays on. Knowing the history of the recordings made me enjoy the CD even more. Two thumbs up.
