Alice Cooper in 1971, who met her ally Bob Ezrin and blossomed all at once. The gift release decision is a professional shot that conveys the scene and becomes exactly “moving LOVE IT TO DEATH”.
This work was filmed at “Asbury Park Performance on July 4, 1971”. It’s a precious vintage pro shot. Speaking of 1971, Alice’s career’s biggest turning point. While being the last of the STRAIGHT label era, it was also the beginning of the golden WARNER era. For that reason, the show and set change depending on the season, and the significance of the show changes greatly. In terms of checking that area, let’s first look back on the schedule at that time.

・ January 1st-February 28th: ​​North America # 1 (11 performances)
“March 9” LOVE IT TO DEATH “released”
・ March 19-October 19: North America # 2 (78 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
・ October 22nd-November 7th: Europe (9 performances)
《November 27, “KILLER” released》
・ November 27-December 31: North America # 3 (21 performances)

This is Alice Cooper in 1971. In the spring, we released “LOVE IT TO DEATH” and started the world tour including the first Europe. The Asbury Park performance of this work was the 44th performance of the main “North America # 2”.
This work, which was shot at the beginning of the golden age, has a tasteful vintage quality. Even though it is a professional shot, it is a monochrome one-camera, and it is not the type that is touted as “official class!”. However, the stable angle and continuous do-up are wonderful because the people involved are shooting, and the sound is (naturally) close to the sound board. Actually, this video can be seen on a major video site, but the master is different from this work. This work is much more natural and the length is longer (about 40 seconds).
What is drawn in such a video is exactly “LOVE IT TO DEATH to see with the eyes”. Roughly speaking, all the songs are from that album, so I will omit the set analysis, but instead, the rich initial mood where all the songs except “Long Way to Go” and “Hallowed Be My Name” are shown is delicious. Alice began to reprint rare early numbers in the 21st century, but you can still enjoy the limited songs “Sun Arise”, “Second Coming” and “Black Juju” at that time with a super-dup view. is.

 盟友ボブ・エズリンと出逢い、一気に開花した1971年のアリス・クーパー。その現場を伝え、まさに「動くLOVE IT TO DEATH」となるプロショットがギフト・リリース決定です。
《3月9日『LOVE IT TO DEATH』発売》
 これが1971年のアリス・クーパー。春には『LOVE IT TO DEATH』をリリースし、初ヨーロッパも含むワールド・ツアーを開始しました。本作のアズベリー・パーク公演は、そのメインである「北米#2」の44公演目にあたるコンサートでした。
 そんな映像で描かれるのは、まさに「目で観るLOVE IT TO DEATH」。ざっくばらんに言って全部あのアルバムからの曲なのでセット分析は省略しますが、その代わり「Long Way to Go」「Hallowed Be My Name」以外の全曲が披露される濃厚な初期ムードが美味しい。アリスは21世紀になってから珍しい初期ナンバーも復刻するようになりましたが、それでも演奏していない当時の限定曲「Sun Arise」「Second Coming」「Black Juju」を超ドアップの絶景で楽しめるのです。
 モノクロな画面も名作『LOVE IT TO DEATH』のジャケットそのまま。ロックに革命を起こしたショックロックの原点をドアップ満載で目撃できるヴィンテージ・プロショットです。すべてはここから始まった。まさに文化遺産と鳴る的詩的な1枚、ぜひこの機会にお楽しみください。
