Even the cover brilliantly designed to look like a school desk which opens to reveal the desk contents and the liner notes disguised as a school quiz, is simply wonderful. It's one of the few original vinyl albums I still have from my teens and apart from the wonderful music has so many memories attached, like the look on my poor mothers face.
Along with Alice and his band (Michael Bruce - guitar, Glen Buxton - guitar, Dennis Dunaway - bass, Neal Smith - drums, I list them merely to ensure they receive due recognition) much of the credit for this (and other Cooper) albums must go to producer Bob Ezrin. For me, Ezrin easily reached his creative peak (if indeed producers reach such things), with these four early 1970s Cooper albums. On School's Out, the production values are stunning. Cooper, Ezrin and Co. make spectacular use of full orchestral and (at times) big-band jazz arrangements on the West Side Story-inspired songs Gutter Cats vs The Jets (a satirical take on the musical's gang warfare) and Grand Finale (both songs lifting some of Leonard Bernstein's musical themes). Similarly, the seminal album title song and the Cooper/Ezrin composition My Stars continue with the large-scale sound arrangements.
But, for me, the album reaches its creative peak on the remaining four songs, each song in its own way something of a minor masterpiece.Read more ›
its no good i had to buy the 24 carat gold remaster and it is sublime. its seems to have the weight,breath, space and three dimentionality (is there such a word)of the origional album. you can even hear some of the busier tracks compress. fantastic. quite immotional in a way because remasters seem to bring out the details you proberly could hear on vinyl as a young teenager before your ears got hammered by drills, guitars, motorhead and shouting children
i found it in the uk on a well known auction site at a very good price. buy the cheap one for the car and the remaster for best at home. if you love this album get the remaster you will not be disapointed
