I’ve always loved sing low sweet cheerio and levity ball. I also like below your means and the original version of lay down and die goodbye

Re: biblical touch

I really like TLT but I was never that keen on Brutal Planet (a bit too Metal for me). To be honest I’ve never been that taken with WTMN but I love the black out period stuff. TLT definitely gets plenty of spins in our house.

Grand Finale credits

Forgive me if I appear stupid and this is well known but I’ve looked and I can’t find why Mack David and Elmer Bernstein are credited in Grande Finale. Is there a lift from one of their tunes on it? There’s still the musical quote from West Side Story but Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim don’t...

It shows where they were headed if Ezrin never came on board. They would have been forgotten by 1971.
I love both these albums but I have to say I totally agree with this ^

Re: Paranormal CD 2 with original Alice Cooper band plus some live songs. Very good or excellent?

The main problem with recreating that 70’s “ultra cool rock” sound is down to the type of coolant systems used in studios these days. As the 60’s came to an end and the 70’s dawned the original 1950’s thermo chillsonic units began to degrade giving at first a pleasant hallucinogenic flavor and late...

Re: Old Record Collector Ad

Yes some of the records he had available were rather expensive, definitely too expensive for me! But I did get to look at grainy black and white photocopied pictures of the album covers!

Old Record Collector Ad

I’m probably going to look really stupid to all the die hard fans and long time members of this site when I ask this but here goes! Many years ago when I used to buy “Record Collector” magazine over here in the UK there used to be an Ad in the classified section for Alice Cooper collectibles and mem...

Re: Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal

There’s also a rumor that the intro was actually done in the studio and then added but I can’t find any concrete information on this. Steve Hunter says he originally used it as the intro to Viscous and then later on the tour for Sweet Jane so it would certainly have been played live. I think the rum...

Re: Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal

I like it that they used John Denver crowd noise to beef up the audience track. Someone in the studio had their tongue in their cheek. Babysquid where did you find this info? It's not on Wikipedia & I had been told that Cheap Tricks' @ Budokan had alternate audience noise also. Not on Wiki either! ...
