Let's start right out with the facts....I'm one of the biggest Alice Cooper fans on the planet! The first 45 RPM single I ever bought was 'Elected'. My first 33 RPM album was 'Easy Action'. Since then I've bought just about everything else Alice, both the band and as a solo artist, has ever released on vinyl, CD, VHS, DVD, etc. I hate to say it but this collection sounds like "crapola" overall. There are only a couple songs I would ever listen to more than once again because they sound so bad. I read the reviews and noted some saying this was for hardcore collectors only, but I disagree. Hardcore fans not only deserve but should expect better than this. Now that the price has come down for the reissue I took a chance mostly for the 1971 bootleg concert and even that is just OK at best. I am sure they've got better quality stuff in the vaults but probably couldn't get permission from Warner Brothers to release it. There are a couple of live songs (Muscle of Love in Rio 1974 and Under My Wheels in NYC 1973) that make be believe there probably are full tapes of these shows. Why not release them? Also, where is anything from Billion Dollar Babies? I'm sorry guys, I love the original Alice Cooper Group but this is more than a little bit of a let down.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Die Hard Alice Cooper Group Fans 6 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The package looks great and there are some excellent parts to it and you can tell it's not just a cash-in for the groups rock and roll Hall of Fame induction as it is a real attempt to build on the visual quality of the original Alice Cooper group album designs and succeeds in that respect having been put together with a lot of love and respect for the original AC group and with their full co-operation. It is much more worthy of your money then say the Stones Exile on Main Street Box.

The glossy hardback book has lots of excellent rare photos and a good history of the band and lets face it where else will you get this, (not in WH Smiths!).

The art cards are very good.

The repro of the Killer 71 programme is excellent, as this Group did some of the best concert programmes, with lots of colour and black and white photos.

I personally could have done without the vinyl live 71 Killer album and early single, especially as the live album is also reproduced as a CD (also the vinyl single a side "Why don't you love me" should have made it onto CD disc 1 as that has yet to have an official digital release and you have to wonder when that will now ever happen)and these must have added a hefty amount to the final price. However the live CD and the DVD are the gems of the package. The Love it to Death and especially the Killer tours (represented here) along with the studio LPs are the pinnacle of lead guitarist Glen Buxton's contributions, because as die hard fans now know, he was already drifting by the time of the Schools Out LP sessions although he did come up with the classic riff and co-wrote the centre piece: Gutter Cat vs the Jets)and played very little on B$B and possibly nothing on Muscle of Love.

This Old School 4 cd set is really only for die hard fans of Alice Cooper as there is nothing new here and what we have is old outtakes and interviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Must try harder 29 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
As a life long fan of the original Alice Cooper Group, i just had to have this box set, but having let the dust settle on it for a few months i can't help feeling a little disapointed by it.
My biggest gripe is with some of the packaging, the CD's and DVD are in cheap sleeves with artwork that looks like it has been put together by someone on a basic computer photoshop type of programme, i would have liked these 'Treasures' to be in solid jewel cases, with alot more thought gone into the packaging....for example booklets in each with more information on individual tracks you get one sheet covering all of the discs in very small writing ). I personally don't like the hardback yearbook, which is laid out like a scrapbook to be in keeping with the desk theme. I would have prefered this to contain as many live pictures of the original band as you could cram onto the page! The art prints don't do much for me either, would have liked one live print of each band member instead.
The music on the discs vary greatly in quality, which i guess is to be expected, i'm sure they included the best sources that were available, but be warned, if you are expecting hi-quality demo's etc, you are going to be disapointed for the most part.The Schools Out demo's are interesting... CD 3 is spoken word, which is fine in itself, but covers pretty much everything already on the dvd,so a little pointless really.
They maybe should have filled the dvd with the live footage such as the ABC in concert mentioned in other reviews.One really annoying thing for me is that only Alice has a say on the break up of the band, Bob Ezrin stating that they simply ran out of time for the others to have a say on this subject....yeah, right.
