Alice Cooper Releasing Condensed Version Of 'Old School: 1964-1974'In time for the 40th anniversary of the seminal ‘School’s Out’ reaching Number 1 in the UK and backing up his Halloween Night of Fear III UK Tour, Alice Cooper’s ‘Old School 1964-1974: Special Edition’ is the incredible true story of the Alice Cooper group. The international release date of ‘Old School 1964-1974: Special Edition’ is November 19th, followed by a U.S. release on December 4th.

‘Old School 1964-1974: Special Edition’ is a career-spanning 4CD and download set taking you inside one of rock’s great bands in a unique full-length school yearbook, with an array of amazing audio rarities direct from the depths of the band’s own vaults and personal collections, with unearthed gems also generously provided by family, friends, road crew and long-time fans.

Housed in a very apt mini school desk design, this set features 4 discs crammed with demos, pre-production and rehearsal recordings of classic Alice Cooper tracks, radio spots, interview anecdotes, plus a full live show captured on the 1971 Killer tour — Live in St Louis — along with a 60-page yearbook charting the incredible rise of Alice Cooper complete with many rare photos.

‘Old School 1964-174: Special Edition’ also includes ‘School’s Out’ demos, live versions and audio of the original recording sessions with producer Bob Ezrin and the kids choir from the chorus.

Alice Cooper flipped hippie ideals on their head and astonished the world, “driving a stake through the heart of the Love Generation,” as the group’s namesake put it. Heavy metal took the imagery, punk took the tunes, rock and pop took the showmanship as fans the world over fell in love with the band’s macabre sense of humor.

This Special Edition is a condensed version of the original sold-out ‘Old School: 1964-1974’ super deluxe box set released in 2011.
