Liner Notes

Alice Cooper - lead vocals; Steve Hunter - guitar, vocals; Jefferson Kewley - guitar; Dee Murray - bass; Fred Mandel - keyboards; Dennis Conway - drums

This recording was made during Cooper's early 1978 tour, which he had launched to promote his first live album, The Alice Cooper Show, three years after the original and enormously popular Alice Cooper Band had been dissolved. Cooper himself was trying to make the transition from camp-ish rock ghoul to more mainstream pop icon, as songs like "Only Women Bleed," and "How You Gonna See Me Now?" clearly reveal.

His band was made up of top L.A. session players as well as Dee Murray (from Elton John's band). They were unquestionably a better group of musicians than the original Cooper band (as evinced on the concert closer, "School's Out"), but lacked the primal charisma of the old group.

Cooper was smart enough to feature mostly older hits in the show, and the audience is audibly glad to hear it. Highlights include "Under My Wheels," "Eighteen" and the always amusing "Is It My Body?"
