Re: Live at Glasgow '82 - 2lp RSD 20202

Unfortunately, RSD has turned into nothing more than a massive rip-off. Limited and overpriced vinyl releases, mostly unavailable to the majority of fans. I'll never understand why these releases can't be made available at a later date in whatever format (vinyl, CD, download), possibly in different...

Re: Live at Glasgow '82 - 2lp RSD 20202

Si Do you know how many copies of the astro gig were printed? Had no problem ordening a copy but 750 worlwide for this one is truly a small number ... There were 5,000 widely available copies of the Live From The Astroturf 12" (4,000 National Editions with 12 different colours and 1,000 deluxe Good...

Re: What Ever Happened To Live At The Astroturf dvd?

Looks like a release in early 2021 is now more likely due to Covid-19, which has messed with all our lives. You can be sure that Chris and co. will do everything possible to drop a KILLER release!

Re: Special Forces Running Order

Thanks Si, that's great and you're quite right that the actual musical content is always the same (i.e. the 2nd list I provided). It's very interesting to think that the late removal of the final track resulted in the rest of the album having a notably different flow. Who knows what the thought proc...

Special Forces Running Order

Apologies if this has been covered before (can't see anything in the album details on this site), but does anyone know the background on why the running order of the tracks on this album vary? For example, original vinyl copies have this: 1. Who Do You Think We Are; 2. Seven And Seven Is; 3. Skeleto...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Back to the song, I assume Alice is currently camped up in Phoenix so it was interesting he implied that he was in Detroit at the end. In the SiriusXM interview, he mentioned that the song was a finished song, "Hanging By A Thread," that he and Bob reworked into "Don't Give Up" and released now. I ...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

EarMusic have form for their "Limited Edition" releases selling out then going back on sale so I'm quite sure everyone who wants one will get a copy at a fair price. For Sound Of A they even increased a previously announced production run of 4,000 to 6,000! Back to the song, I assume Alice is curren...

Re: A window for a live dvd!!!

As much as the current situation sucks, you can only surmise that everyone will eventually by using their downtime to write (and possibly also record) new material. It's obviously not good if you haven't yet seen the new show, but in the long run we may all be rewarded with several albums worth of s...

Re: 65 Quid For an Autograph!

65 pounds for an Autograph is hardly a small price for an autograph. His signature is not even that good! At least Si agrees with me. It's not a small price at all, and you can get official pre-signed stuff for about half that amount. I guess the difference in price accounts for the experience of m...

Re: 65 Quid For an Autograph!

To confirm, you pay £65 for a personal autograph and £75 for a photo (or £175 for both plus "gift") plus the entry fee of £18. Much cheaper than a concert meet and greet, but still a LOT of money for many people. People with decent disposable income will happily pay though as many will see it as a o...

Re: New Last Temptation on vinyl.

Another question is what would this be the anniversary of? I guess a late 25th as the album first came out in 1994. What's also odd is that it's already listed for sale here, but appears to be the same as the 2016 release: https://www.fridaymusic.com/product/Y4LPFM0355/alice-cooper-the-last-temptati...

Re: New Last Temptation on vinyl.

Another Last Temptation? I'm getting to the point where I'm probably going to stop collecting the re-issues unless there is something really notable about them. It's a vicious circle as if you keep buying them they'll keep making them! This is an odd one as Friday Music already released a blue gatef...

Re: RARHOF Alice Cooper Fan Day - Live From The Astroturf / Cold Cold Coffin

I can't speak on their behalf, but a potential problem with Kickstarter projects is that you can offer bespoke incentives without knowing how many you'll sell. If only a handful are ordered then it may make production of them economically unviable and that may be why they're looking to consolidate s...

Does anyone know if this is being released as a single? The short answer is yes, sort of! A download and 7" vinyl single was offered to people that pledged funds as part of the CCC Kickstarter project, plus also lathe cuts of CCC, The Sound Of A and Fireball demos: https://www.kickstarter.com/proje...
