Second Sighting

Second Sighting

Second Sighting is the third solo album by Ace Frehley and the second and final to use the Frehley's Comet moniker. Due to Frehley's illness and substance abuse during the recording, Tod Howarth took a bigger role in singing and songwriting than on the previous album.

Second Sighting was recorded with new drummer Jamie Oldaker, who had previously worked with Bob Seger and Eric Clapton. He replaced Billy Ward, who was in the videos and part of the tour for the previous album replacing Anton Fig, who would return for 1989's Trouble Walkin'. This makes Second Sighting the only Frehley solo album or project (excluding compilations) to not feature Fig at this point.

"Dancin' with Danger" is a cover version of a song recorded by the Canadian band Streetheart, which had featured future Loverboy members Paul Dean and Matt Frenette. Although the songwriting credits list Frehley and Dana Strum, the music and lyrics are very similar to the original version.

"Insane" and "It's Over Now" were released as singles with corresponding music videos. Both singles failed to chart.

UK-based company Rock Candy Records reissued this album on CD in 2013.
