Alice Cooper - Schools Out (1972) (Gold CD Remaster Edit 2009)

Alice Cooper - Schools Out (1972) (Gold CD Remaster Edit 2009)

Thanks to Thor for this share!

Our 24K + series will bring you classic music in delux packaging with the see through slip cases (ala DCC), using original graphics, all beautifully reproduced. We only use the original master tape which is played back on a specially constructed vintage tube playback deck. Here's where the "plus (+)" comes in: The analog masters are put through our new "Kensei Audio Transformer," which adds true "breath of life" to the music, making our new 24K + Gold CD series the best sounding music you can buy, period!

School's Out catapulted Alice Cooper into the hard rock stratosphere, largely due to its timeless, all-time classic title track. But while the song became Alice's highest-charting single ever (reaching number seven on the U.S. charts) and recalled the brash, three-and-a-half-minute garage rock of yore, the majority of the album signaled a more complex compositional directional for the band. Unlike Cooper's previous releases (Love It to Death, Killer), which contained several instantly identifiable hard rock classics, School's Out appears to be a concept album, and aside from the aforementioned title track anthem, few of the other tracks have ever popped up in concert. That's not to say they weren't still strong and memorable; while such cuts as "Gutter Cat vs. the Jets," "Street Fight," "My Stars," and "Grande Finale" came off like mini-epics with a slightly progressive edge, Alice Cooper still managed to maintain their raw, unrefined punk edges, regardless. Other highlights included the rowdy "Public Animal #9," the mid-paced "Luney Tune," and the sinister, cabaret-esque "Blue Turk."...G. Prato

Thanks. This is quite an important album in rock history. With the "Killer" album before and "Billion Dollar Babies" album after it, it was the first time anything like this had been done. Incredible records.
