WASTED CHANCE FOR REAL COOPER FANS,
This review is from: The Life And Crimes Of Alice Cooper (International Release) (Audio CD)
What a wasted opportunity this is. Sure if you like his latest stuff from 'welcome' onward then be my guest (i don't) to me Alice cooper will alwats be the Buxton/Dunaway/Smith/Bruce line up-no question. Sure you get some outtakes from 'schools out' and the NME freebie. But why not the giveaway 'nobody likes me' or the extended versions of 'is it my body/my very own' and 'public animal 9' or the brilliant Toronto set in full (not the rip off that comes out periodically and isn't even all Alice, but Mitch Ryder)There's a helluva lot of great unreleased live stuff (the ABC special for a start) and this box set could of used some of that at least. I know Alice disowns the early Straight stuff, but he could of at least left his bias at the door and used this box set to give the complete picture.
