On the heels of the historic KISS Reunion Tours (spanning 400+ show from 1996 to thru 2001) Ace Frehley began laboring over the material that would culminate in the 2009 release of ANOMALY, the highest charting Frehley solo album since his self-titled debut in 1978 (which featured the only Top 20 KISS solo hit with New York Groove). Frehley is also the only member to vibrantly maintain a solo career, having recently renewed with eOne Music for what will be his 9th and 10th solo albums in the coming years.
As for the project at hand, as ALLMUSIC.com put it: ANOMALY surprised even longtime supporters with its forceful, confident performances and sharp songwriting. Not to mention its #27 debut on the Billboard Top 200. Since then Ace Frehley went on to release the first ever Top 10 Billboard 200 debut of any Kiss related solo album with Space Invader in 2014, the same year he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Out of print since 2010, ANOMALY Deluxe returns to fill a major void in the Frehley catalog, newly remastered with 3 bonus songs, including 2 previously unreleased tracks for KISS/Frehley collectors and completists worldwide, in addition to The Return of Space Bear, which now appears on cd for the first time.
