Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

They billed it as "the film that outgrosses them all," but if some of the antics on display in Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper - Live 1973 seem fairly mild some thirty years after the fact, that's mainly because people like Marilyn Manson and some of the more lurid punk and metal acts copped many of their moves from Cooper in the first place. This movie, which combines footage from the band's Billion Dollar Babies concert tour with what might charitably be described as a storyline, had a brief theatrical run in the mid-'70s but has been mostly unseen until this DVD release, which features a high definition transfer and a new sound mix. The group (with its namesake singer joined by original members Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton on guitar, Dennis Dunaway on bass, and drummer Neal Smith) was in the midst of a nice run of hits at the time; "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "Eighteen," and "School's Out" are all ably performed here, but it's the stage show in all its Grand Guignol glory that's the prime attraction. Clockwork Orange-style violence, necrophilia, decapitation via guillotine, humping mannequins, sticking baby dolls with swords: that and more is on display here, all in the name of what Cooper, whose commentary track is the major bonus feature, describes as "performance art." Well, maybe. Most of it comes off as little more than a hodgepodge of disconnected images--some vile and vulgar, some merely silly--designed to thrill the kids and piss off the parents, which it most certainly did… and ain't that what rock & roll is all about? As for the "story" (something about a crazed film director out for vengeance after Alice ruins his masterpiece) that's intercut with the concert numbers, the best that can be said about it is that viewers have the option of choosing the "play concert only" option. --Sam Graham

Product Description

And now, America's own Billion Dollar Babies ... the legendary ALICE COOPER!

The original Rock ’n’ Roll Spectacle. The groundbreaking tour. The five original members of the Alice Cooper group captured live. The 1973 Billion Dollar Babies show was the first of its kind. No other band had ever brought a more expensive, elaborate theatrical production to the rock stage -- and rarely has any since.

Now available for the FIRST TIME since it hit theaters in 1974, Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper -- the film made during the Billion Dollar Babies tour that combines stunning concert footage with an outrageous story and also features the band’s acting debut — has been transferred in high definition and now includes a new 5.1 Surround Sound mix.

The crunching music, the snake, the guillotine, the makeup, the hatchets, mannequins and dolls, the money, the whips -- it all started here. Alice Cooper kicked the door down. All the other artists followed behind.

Featuring 13 Alice Cooper classics recorded live in concert:

Hello, Hooray
Billion Dollar Babies
Elected
I’m Eighteen
Raped And Freezin’
No More Mr. Nice Guy
My Stars
Unfinished Sweet
Sick Things
Dead Babies
I Love The Dead
School’s Out
Under My Wheels
And a studio performance of The Lady Is A Tramp

Plus These Special Features:
*Audio Commentary by Alice Cooper
*Play-Concert-Only Option
*Deleted Scene and Outtakes
*Original Theatrical Trailer and Radio Spots
*Poster Gallery With Original Promotional Material
Band Biographies
*DVD Easter Eggs
*Anamorphic Widescreen & 5.1 Surround Sound

If Charles Manson killed the hippie's "Summer Of Love", Alice Cooper mocked and humped the corpse. There could have been no better time for Alice Cooper to appear than in the early 70s. I was just a child at the time, standing around shadowy corners of the schoolyard where second hand stories of Alice's gory live act were whispered and traded like gruesome little folklore tales. Our parents tried to protect us, but we would spend amazing amounts of effort sneaking albums and 8-track tapes of Alice around, secretly listening to the forbidden musical gems. Anybody who saw the band live at this time must have sensed that they were witness to a historical moment in time... a moment that represented American pop-culture's bogus innocence being deflowered. These lovely blood spattered memories are now ours to cherish forever with the DVD release of "Good to See You Again Alice Cooper", available for the first time ever on home video.

Two nights of Alice Cooper's notorious 1973 Billion Dollar Babies tour (April 28th in Dallas and April 29th in Houston) were filmed to create this rare 1974 midnight matinee film, and it's a great testament to the riotous live act that made the Alice Cooper Group a threat to concerned parents everywhere. This DVD contains the original cut of the film which includes the band starring in charming little skits scattered amongst the astonishing live footage (The more common version of the film shown in theaters included old film and newsreel footage instead of the skits). A highly amusing moment among these skits features the band playing "The Lady Is a Tramp". Shout! Factory lovingly provides this release with a new high-definition film transfer along with a new Surround Sound mix created from the 16-track master tapes.

It has taken over 30 years for this movie, in its original version, to finally be officially released! and what a special gem this is, but...

WARNING - i must suggest that ANY new viewer of this movie should firstly watch this movie WITH Alice Cooper's commentary, otherwise you most likely will not fully enjoy it, may even hate it and may never give it another chance which would actually be a pity. why?...

firstly... hard-core Alice fans, who have endured many years of watching average quality versions of the 2nd version of this movie (which saw limited theatrical release in 1974 and had most of the 'comedy' story parts replaced by Alice press conference footage and clips from old Hollywood movies - overall, aside from the live footage, not a very enjoyable viewing experience) and dire quality versions of this original version, will certainly marvel at the quality of this release... and everyone else may complain about the at-times sketchy print, dull picture, or crackly sound. it's sharp and completely watchable, but be prepared for imperfections - this release is from movie prints that have sat unplayed and decaying in some vault for over 30 years! it may as well be antique...

secondly... the live footage, though too darkly filmed, is superb and effectively captures the meyhem of the Billion Dollar Babies show and Alice Cooper's character as a drunken socialist punk of the times. but the movie as a whole - with a 'comical' story line, weaved between the concert footage, of a mentally-deranged German film director (Herr Director) out to seek revenge on the 'Cooper gang' for trashing his film set and walking out on him leaving all hopes of him making a brilliant ground-breaking movie to trash - just doesn't work.

5.0 out of 5 stars " I Used To Like This Song" February 4, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To quote the wife after I dragged her into the den to watch this delight...During No More Mister Nice Guy she uttered

"I used to like this song..." I was already laughing just watching this dvd treasure...that sealed it. Gold standard.

Amazing...This band would get more criticism in Bush's America than it did back then....WAIT A MINUTE! ANOTHER PLUS!! Groundbreaking then, groundbreaking today. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in one critical aspect February 10, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I understand this is an Alice Cooper concert. This Dvd is really a Vincent Furnier show. With Alice Cooper (the band) as his backup. Alice Cooper was originally the collective name of 5 guys in a band. Vince happened to be the lead vocalist.

Let me get to my point. There is practically no close-up footage of Glen Buxton or Michael Bruce(except for when Michael "attacks" Vince during a song). There is a little bit of Neil Smith on drums, very little. You get a little footage of Dennis Dunaway on bass because he is running around a bit and happens to get in frame with Vince. No I'm not a complaining little punk kid. I truly love the Alice Cooper albums with the original 5 guys! I own them all and have played them many, many times over the years. They rank in my top ten bands in my 650 plus cd collection. I really wished the director and camera people would have gotten close footage of the entire "band" here. Also, it is known that a very talented guitarist named Mick Mashbir did ALOT of guitar work on Billion Dollar Babies and Muscle of Love. He is also on this dvd and doing a fantastic job. Again, no close-ups of him. A keyboardist rounds out the ensemble.

As a guitar player I was hoping to see the fingerwork too.

But, having said all this, the audio quality is pretty good here. The separation of the guitarists is nice, and the old classics really do sound good! Get this dvd, lay back and close your eyes and enjoy a truly great BAND playing really good music!
