*** Résumé en anglais seulement *** Alice Cooper is legendary as one of Rock s greatest showmen, having incorporated guillotines, snakes, dancing teeth, electric chairs and all manner of pyrotechnics into his amazing live performances. But - as this excellent live broadcast recording superbly attests - Alice always had the rock-solid musical muscle to back up all the over-the-top onstage theatrics! Alice s exceedingly accomplished band for this gig at Wendler Arena, performed May 10th 1978, includes two long-term stalwarts from the band of another great showman, Elton John: Davey Johnstone on guitar and bassist Dee Murray; drummer Dennis Conway, keyboard player Frec Mandel and guitarist Jefferson Kewley, made up the rest of the group. This gig was something of a homecoming for Alice, Saginaw being located just northwest of his birthplace in Detroit, Michigan. The original Alice Cooper band was formed much further south however - in Phoenix, Arizona - in the late 1960 s. The nascent psychedelic garage band soon came to the attention of Frank Zappa who became their mentor and signed them to a three-album deal with his Straight Records label. Major label Warner Brothers were quick to seize on Alice Cooper s potential and bought the band s contract from Straight. Now the ball was really rolling - Love It To Death reached number 35 on the Billboard chart. The subsequent Killer capitalised on this success and from it, Under My Wheels, Be My Lover and Halo Of Flies were all successful singles, the latter particularly so in the Netherlands and Belgium. All of these were put in the shade by 1972 s massive breakthrough single School s Out which went Top 10 in the USA, hit No.1 in the UK and which remains a staple of rock radio today. The 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies trumped its predecessor and reached the number 1 spot in both the UK and USA. In addition to the title track along with Unfinished Sweet and I Love the Dead are included herein. Alice s shock-rock stage show also reached a pinnacle of Grand Guignol during this period by incorporating a guillotine and a convincingly gruesome beheading sequence into the proceedings! Released in November the same year, Muscle Of Love marked the demise of the original Alice Cooper band - and main man Vince (now legal owner of the Alice Cooper moniker) was then reborn as a solo artist with the 1975 release of the Welcome To My Nightmare album. Proving that he could cut it alone, the ballad Only Women Bleed broke into the US Top 20 singles chart. This key album in Alice s career is also represented in this performance by Devil s Food, The Black Widow and Escape. Alice built on the huge success of his debut solo album, by solid touring and the subsequent release of the records Alice Cooper Goes To Hell (1976), featuring the number 12 single hit I Never Cry and Lace And Whiskey (1977) whose single You And Me (a third successful ballad) did even better by reaching number 9.
