Alice Cooper - Old School 1964-1974 Box Set - #20

Alice Cooper - Old School 1964-1974 Box Set

A monster of a box set is on the way into the shops. The item should be available around June 21, 2011, which seems to be the official release date, although some shops have it down to June 17, 2011.

This doesn't come cheap. Around USD 260.00 if you happen to live in the States. The pricing for Europe is a joke though, the link from the Alice Cooper site to Switzerland has it at CHF 315.00, while the link to Finland shows almost EUR 240.00 for the lot. If you happen to live in EU Europe, you should buy this in Germany as the link from the site gives you an option to buy this for a bit below EUR 190.00 (and postage is free).

If you search the internet, you also get some mailorders in Germany offering the item for just above EUR 160.00, but then you'll have to add postage (most likely). But what is it you get? Plenty from the way this is announced

4 CDs from the years 1964-1974:
Disc 1: Demos, rarities, live, and advertisements
Disc 2: Demos from “Muscle of Love,” a pre-production of songs from “Schools Out,“1973 Madison Square Garden live track, and advertisements.
Disc 3: Spoken word (from 2010/2011)
Disc 4: Live show of the 1971 “Killer” tour in St. Louis
DVD (single disc in Amaray case) – over 2 hours including new and candid conversation with the band plus never before seen archival clips.
60 page, full-color yearbook style book with hard front & back cover:
Period pictures of all band members, many never before seen
Gatefold folder containing: tour program, ticket stubs, set list, 5 print
Bootleg Vinyl: 1971 “Killer” live show in St. Louis
7” Vinyl: Songs “Wonder Who’s Loving Her Now?” and “Lay Down And Die, Goodbye” from The Nazz
Now I realise, that this is serious cash one has to cough up, but I'm already salivating and can hardly wait. The item does look stunning and I just suppose, I have to hold myself back on other acquisitions of popular music during the next month.
