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

I wasn't able to get queueing this morning but thankfully a mate has done the business for me. Another friend has had two failed attempts. eBay is already rampant with it of course.

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: Special Forces - Special Prices

Just noticed that the same seller has some other Alice items that are interesting.

But not at anything close to those prices.

Special Forces - Special Prices

I know you have to aim high, but the asking price here is ambitious!

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

Went down to my local store in the west end of Glasgow last week to be told they were getting the grand total of two copies of the album and have numerous people enquiring already. They also told me that two other shops in Glasgow were getting 5 copies or less. There is only another shop in the Gla...

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

Not long until October's Record Store Day now, assuming there are no further delays.

Do we think the Covid crisis is going to make it easier or harder to get our hands on this album?

Re: Alice Songs You Like More Than Most Other Fans Do

Some cracking comments here. I have to say that the thoughts of del and Spot and Jerome are exactly the reason I started this thread. I'm thinking "Whaaaat?" but each to their own and that's what it's all about. Another one of mine that has just spring to mind is my fond liking for Keepin' Halloween...

Alice Songs You Like More Than Most Other Fans Do

I always ignore random twitter questions but a recent one about well known films you like more than most other people do got me thinking about that in relation to Alice songs. Things are understandably quiet on here at the moment so I was wondering... are there any particular Alice songs you suspect...

Re: Si Halley on Ryan Roxie's podcast

I’ve watched every episode of Roxie’s in the trenches , I must say I was not too excited about this one , I had never heard of Kai , did not know he was an Alice fan , nor did I know his connection to Bill , plus I have no idea what a YouTube celebrity/ influencer is or does , I thought they were w...

Really enjoyed that.

Although a little disappointing that the infamous Alice/Bill mask didn't come up in conversation.

Rockin' Reggie Vinson Book

Has anyone read Reggie's 'Still Got a Song in Me' book?

It's a fairly pricey investment so, despite my interest, I'm not sure about buying it.

Re: Covers

As far as the original group goes, I don't think any of the albums that didn't have them would have benefited from the addition of covers, with the possible exception of Muscle of Love. Maybe including some song they all loved, perhaps even beating Aerosmith to the punch with Train Kept A-Rollin', w...

Re: Alice on Top of the Pops

I remember Tony Blackburn having a very brief chat to Alice, re Elected , on the 9th November '72 show. Following the Mary Whitehouse/Leo Abse furore - tabloid hysteria & double page spreads of BDB's mascara baby - TOTP (and Radio One) gave the subsequent singles short shrift. Despite them all clim...

Re: Alice on Top of the Pops

No Pan's People then. Outrageous. I don't know that for sure. The "Disc" means they played the record, sometimes with dancers, sometimes over credits or the chart rundown maybe? I have no info on if that was the case for any of the Alice listed as "disc". Very good point. They surely can't all have...

Alice on Top of the Pops

I was looking at a database (not sure how accurate it is) of Top of the Pops performances and under Alice there are no fewer than 14 appearances listed for the seventies. 7 for School's Out in 1972 (including one on the Christmas show) 3 for Elected in 1972 1 for Hello Hurray in 1973 2 for No More M...

Re: Suzi Q.

Just listened to it there. Slight bit of confusion when Suzi asked Alice if he'd heard her version of I Never Cry and he got it into his head she'd said Only Women Bleed. This led to him saying the usual stuff about it becoming a female anthem and the number of women that had covered it (Only Women ...

Re: Under My Wheels - Twist and Shout Ending

I seem to have accidentally misled people with the way I worded the original post. I'm not talking about Alice covering Twist and Shout, only the ending of it being appropriated as the finish of Under My Wheels. The ascending "aah-aah-aah" vocal bit etc for the final few seconds.
