Re: comparing ACG to Alice solo in terms of rating enjoyment

Well Alice solo has had quite a few different phases so maybe it would be easier to separate each of them and rate them against the group (which possibly could be argued had 2 separate phases itself ) I.e ballad Alice 60, black out Alice 100, Hair Metal Alice -1 etc.. I'd have to go on an album by ...

Be careful he might be reading and think of recording more covers.

Re: “82”

I’ve just listened to the Glasgow 82 Lp ago finally got a copy. Loved it. Along with the original group this is my favourite Alice period. I’ve got a boot of the show too but this was well worth adding to my collection.

Re: The Alice Cooper Show 1977

Does anyone know if this was in fact a quasi live album or was I just imagining that? I’m not sure , someone recently mentioned it on the SF forum, but again they were asking if it was true or not. I’ve just scanned through Dick Wagner’s book again and the only mention about the album I could find ...

The lyric is "one o' kind". "One of a kind" did not roll off the tongue to fit the meter. This was told to me by Erik. I think Duane may have mentioned this once in a FB posting.
Thanks for that Mr Barlow! 14 year old me now feels less embarrassed to play it in front of my mum!

Re: You’re a movie lyric

I always heard " no porno kind " . Who is Linda Henrick? Answered by Padre already. Always wondered, in the pre-internet time, where all these lyrics were found if they didn't came with the lp.. Sometimes we had lyrics written (or invented :)) by Linda Henrick, and sometimes even for non-english sp...

Yes I referred to these in my initial post but are these actually the “official” lyrics or are they one of Si’s minion’s transcriptions?

You’re a movie lyric

Hi! Hope everyone is well. I’ve been wondering about this lyric for a while. Exactly what type of movie is he? The lyric section here says “ the one o’kind”, another lyric site says “final kind” ( I certainly don’t hear this!), Linda Henrick ,god bless her, say “the * kind” and I’ve always heard “po...

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: Funding Circle

Now I normally skip through the adverts but somehow I’ve managed to see this one three times today! Out of interest while the album credits state (Schifrin, Osborne) writing the song the Lp cover says all lyrics by Alice Cooper. Did he have any part in these lyrics? I would assume not, or certainly...
