OK...Summer of '72, I recall seeing "Alice Cooper" in the bins at the NEX where I bought LPs. I freely admit, I assumed Alice Cooper was a "Folk" singer (ala Joni Mitchell, et al). No Internet & I did not even know what Circus magazine was at the time. In August, we take our annual Summer vaca to Philly...my older, (still)hipper cousins have a Circus magazine laying about; Alice Cooper (the band) is on the cover. That's Alice Cooper?!?!? My cousin sez the band is named Alice Cooper...but the singer also goes by that name. What the Hell?!? Anyway, he & I walk to the nearest Record Store...I buy School's Out & am one happy 14-year old. Side _1 killed me...every song. Had the bass itch, but not yet started playing (i.e. owning) a bass yet. "Gutter Cat" & "Blue Turk" just seemed impossible. To this day, that LP has an 'it' factor for me. The production...every instrument sits right in the mix. From what I've heard, they never sounded that good live, though. That LP got loaned around a lot back then...somehow, it always found its way back home. Still have it...with pink panties.
