This is a recording of a 1969 concert in Toronto, and has been (and continues to be) frequently released under different names: "Science Fiction", "Ladies Man", "Nobody LIKE Me", "Nobody LIKES" Me", "Snorting Anthrax", and the list goes on. There are also two studio songs, which are NOT by Alice (as for how they ended up there, that's been a big subject of debate). So when you see a cheap Alice Cooper CD, check the track list because it may very well be another clone of "Freak Out".
Alice said that when he and his band played shows in the early days (sometimes opening up for The Doors), people would walk out before the show was over. Alice's band was also called "the ones who droke the stake through the heart of the love generation." One listen to this album, and you'll see why both are true. It's almost pure noise with just a splash of melody and beat. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that they were completely drunk when they recorded it.
Now there is, I suppose, some twisted avant-garde significance to that, which is why I give it 2 stars instead of 1. Frank Zappa (who signed AC to his label) said that there was something special about a band who could clear a room in 10 minutes.
Don't get me wrong -- I am a die-hard Alice Cooper fan, and have every single one of his albums. And yes, I even listen to "Freak Out" once in a while. I love songs like "Nobody Likes Me", but I would only recommend this album to 1) fans who already have most of his other albums or 2) fans of complete noise. Playing this CD would make the average person run out of the room, covering their ears. I was talking with a friend once about Alice Cooper, and he said he didn't really like him.

This is a bootleg recording of a 1969 show in Toronto. This collection is available under many, many different names including, Science Fiction, Freak Out, Freak Out Song, Painting a Picture, etc., all of which are available from Amazon. The last two songs "Going to the River" and "Ain't That Just Like A Woman" ARE NOT Alice Cooper songs, nor are they performed by Alice Cooper. (You can confirm that with Alice's assistent, Brian "Renfield" Nelson.)
This is a very poor album. Save your money.

This is a Bootleg release which has been issued under a number of diferent titles, i.e. Ladies Man, Toronto Rock'N'Roll Revival '69, Freak Out Song and I believe one or two others.
The first two tracks, "Going to the River" and "Ain't That Just Like A Woman" aren't even Alice Cooper tracks. There has been considerable debate about who actually performed those numbers at the festival, but one thing is known for sure, it WASN'T Alice Cooper. The rest are very early Alice Cooper recordings which were to eventually appear on Pretties For You and Easy Action. I believe that a number of the tracks were originally done by the Spiders and/or the Nazz, Alice Coopers early group names. It is certainly not the best of his work but nonetheless worth having if you're a Cooper collector or at all interested in the beginnings of the Alice Cooper experience.

As a die hard fan I like it from a purely historical point of view. But man, talk about sloppy. I remember reading in his autobiography, "Me, Alice" that there was a show when they met their manager. They played and the crowd literally got angry and walked out. Based on their ability to instigate so many people to act, albeit in a negative way, they were signed to a manangement deal and, um, got better. This must be how they sounded! LOL!!! Glad to know the last two songs have nothing to do with Alice Cooper, I was wondering bout that. I don't understand why they are there. Do yourself the favor and look elsewhere. Your money can be better speant on much better Alice Cooper albums.

I've enjoyed the hellout of this tape- Of course it not polished, or well recorded. But in my humble opinion its not supposed to be pretty music- this is garage Alice, and for a true fan what more could you ask for?

Let me just say that I love Alice Cooper. I have been a rabid fan of his for fourteen years. Therefore, it really pains me to write this review. This CD, available under many names and on various record labels, is really awful. It is so muddled and out of tune that it starts to sound like a vacum cleaner being forced into a garbage disposal unit. Out of this audio mess only "Nobody Likes Me," "Ain't That Just Like A Woman," and "Goin' To The River" are worth listening to(and they certainly won't be setting the world on fire anytime soon). This CD is okay for completists. All others would do well to avoid listening to these freaky songs!

I've been a die hard Alice Fan for years...I cherished his great albums like Billion Dollar Babies and Welcome to my Nightmare, Head Banged to Raise Your Fist & Constrictor and forgiven him for his jump into the glam world (his glam albums are still great!!!) However this one is without a doubt the worst album I;ve ever heard!! The songs have no rythm let alone reason, simply put it's painful to even listen to it! Save your money and your sanity and buy his classics...this one should be buried in an unmarked grave!!! P.S. Be careful, this album is out there under different titles...if you look at the traks and see Nobody likes it.... drop it and...RUN!!!!
