Whats the story with brutal Planet ?

Post by nurserozetta » Thu Jul 10, 2008 11:17 am

A quick search of Amazon shows that there are maybe 6 or more different incarnations of Brutal Planet currently for sale under various guises . "20th century heroes" and one simply titled "Alice Cooper" are the latest of the lot. So whats the story ? Is it going to end up like Freak out and just keep on reappearing ?

It seems Spitfire are licensing it to anyone who asks at the moment. I doubt Alice and co have much say in the matter unfortunatly.

Of course they are different labels. That`s what licensing is. You sell the rights to release the material to another company, while retaining the overall ownership yourself.

Sorry, not got the tape so can't help. Never took much interest in tapes (hence the general lack of mention on this site).
