Alice Cooper Reveals ‘Old School’ Box Set Details
Just in time for Halloween, Alice Cooper has announced the pending release of his 'Old School' box set. The collection, due Oct. 29, will feature material from his band era of 1964-1974.
The four-disc set features old demos, rehearsal recordings, radio appearances, pre-production versions, an interview disc and a full live show from 1971. This box set is a condensed version of the "super-deluxe" box set that Cooper issued last year.
The material on the collection is offered chronologically with 1966's 'No Price Tag Spiders' kicking off the 'Treasures One' disc, and a 'Greatest Hits' radio advertisement from 1974 completing the 'Treasures Two' disc.
The third disc is solely an interview disc speaking with Cooper and some of his peers, while the fourth disc in the collection is a bootleg disc dubbed 'Killer Live - St. Louis 1971.' In addition, the collection comes with a 60-page school yearbook. The entire set comes packaged in a school desk design.
Fans can also purchase the box set in digital form. For more details, visit Cooper's website.
