In addition to covers of tracks by Cream and Thin Lizzy, Origins, Vol. 1 features newly-recorded versions of several Kiss songs which were written but not sung by Frehley, such as "Cold Gin" and "Parasite", as well as a new version of the Kiss song "Rock and Roll Hell" which he did not perform on as he was leaving the band at the time.

The album entered the Billboard 200 chart at number 23 selling 16,113 in its first week, but totaling 16,386 copies including streams and tracks.

On the track "Wild Thing", Ace Frehley plays the opening guitar riff while Lita Ford performs all the song's guitar solos.

In a 2016 interview with The Pods & Sods Network, Ace describes other songs that were considered, recorded and plans for Origins, Vol. 2.
