Product Description

Product Description

From Banger Films, the creators of Iron Maiden: Flight 666 and Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage, comes Super Duper Alice Cooper the story of Vincent Furnier, the preacher s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as Alice Cooper, the most outrageous rock star of his generation. This unique doc opera, a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera goes from the early days of Alice as the frontman for a cutting edge rock band in the sixties through the hazy decadence of global celebrity in the seventies and on to his winking comeback as the glam metal godfather in the eighties. This is the tale of Alice and Vincent battling for each other s souls. Super Duper Alice Cooper combines audio interviews with a wealth of archive Alice Cooper footage covering concerts, TV appearances, movie cameos, dramatic headlines and magazine spreads. All the highlights of his career are covered aided by contributions from some of the biggest music icons of all time including Iggy Pop, Elton John, John Lydon, Bernie Taupin, Dee Snider and of course Alice Cooper himself. This is the definitive, extraordinary story of the man and the myth that is uniquely Alice Cooper. Deluxe Edition contains the DVD and Blu-ray of Super Duper Alice Cooper plus a DVD of previously unreleased concert footage from Montreal University in 1972 and a CD of the live show from Montreux 2009 all housed in a stunning 60 page hardback photobook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Trooper 29 May 2014
By colcon
Housed in an LP-sized hardback book, this box set is a very stylish package with a well written overview plus scores of stunning photographs. The dvd/blu-ray traces the rise, fall and rise again of Alice Cooper singular, although footage of the original band is heavily featured. Instead of being the usual, formulaic music documentary, the techniques employed by the film makers - archive material, animation, an absence of 'talking heads', interweaving symbolic, silent movie excerpts etc. - create a timeless feel. There are plenty of musical excerpts, but the lack of complete tracks actually enhances the unfolding drama, helping maintain a momentum that never lets up, even in the most disturbing moments when Alice's life/career spectacularly disintegrates. The roller coaster ride ends in 1986, with a sober AC triumphing against the odds and embarking on a successful comeback that has lasted to this day.

The film isn't meant to be a complete overview of Alice Cooper's career but instead a dramatic look at how a fictional character almost destroyed the real life person playing him. A selection of interesting 'bonus' material has also been added. (Note, there are a few expletives uttered along the way!)

There's an extra DVD included, showing rare footage from a 1972 Montreal concert. It's magnificently ramshackle, presenting the original band in all it's 'theatre of the absurd' garage-rock glory. Footage of 'Dead Babies' and 'Killer' is particularly striking in the 'menace and macabre department'. Finally, there's an excellent sounding CD of a 2009 Montreux concert that rocks like hell from start to finish.

This is excellent value with a really good hardback A4 format book with some stunning photos, especially pre 71, quite a few of which are in colour and full page and many I have never seen.

£ for £ this is much better value than the very expensive original full size 'old school' box with arguably a better book to boot.

It includes the excellent documentary super duper in both dvd/ blue ray (which are exacly the same). The real bonus is the other DVD, which while only 35 minutes, is in full colour of clips from Montreal an early 1972 Killer concert. As it was made for a documentary it only has parts of some of the songs (only three are fully complete) as what we have here looks to have been spliced together from filming undertaken to be used for a Canadian documentary which I think was called rock-a-by. Some of the non concert footage from the original documentary was used in Super Duper, with more in the extras, talking about Alice nearly being kidnapped by gay activists. Some of the footage has been around for years in collector circles but never in this colour quality or in such a complete form. Be warned some of the audio has also been synched from other concert recordings, presumably as parts of the original recording is lost, so quality of sound is variable.

However it is the most complete colour footage we have of a Killer show shot with 2-3 cameras and highlights the innovative use of lighting the band were already using and will be the nearest many of us will now get to experiencing a Killer tour show as we were too young to go and see the Band at Wembly in 72. For big fans of the original band this is an absolute must have as the visual quality is excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
First let me say I,m a massive Alice cooper fan. Have been since I was 13 - That's 35 years of obsession. I was really looking forward to this release. It covers the whole period of Alice's career which so fascinated me as a teenager (retrospectively at the time of course). So this package should be just for me right? We'll yes and no. You have to be a full on fan to appreciate the content, but that content just feels lacking. Perhaps it's my problem. Maybe I had too high hopes for an in depth study of the Alice Cooper Group and his early solo career but that's not what you get.

The documentary itself covers so vast a timeframe in so short a length (1 hrs 25) that you have to know your subject to fill in the blanks, but it offers nothing that hasn't already been much more exhaustively covered elsewhere. The focus of the film seems more to be on the ego of the director than on the story of Alice Cooper the group or Alice Cooper the man. All style but far too ambitious for its paltry length. There are plenty of frank and candid personal anecdotes anecdotes from Alice and some of those closest to him but little to set them in context of the life he was living at the time. We all know of the alcohol and coke abuse but how much more informative would it have been to properly cover the contributing factors.

The extra DVD of the 72 Montreal concert was especially disappointing, but only because I naively had high expectations of a full unedited gig. Original footage of the ACG is surprisingly rare so I was really looking forward to this.
