Live At The Whiskey A-Go-Go 1969 is a live album by American rock legend Alice Cooper, originally released in May 1991 by Bizarre / Straight Records.

In a career that spans five decades, the legendary Alice Cooper has sold over 50 million albums and now after years of being out-of-print, Manifesto Records will release Live At The Whiskey A-Go-Go 1969. This album was previously available on CD, but this is the first time that it has ever been available on vinyl! This legendary 1969 performance showcases Alice Cooper and his band in their early days in Los Angeles not long after they arrived from Phoenix. This release showcases Alice and his band in their raw, rocking, early days!

The days of love and peace are over. There is a camp malevolence in the air. Alice Cooper is playing to several Warner Brothers bigwigs, who'd just signed up the band, sight-unseen, via a deal with Frank Zappa and Herb Cohen's Bizarre label. They look uneasy.

As Pamela Des Barres (alias Miss Pamela of the GTO's) states in her sleeve-notes reminiscences, everyone expected "a demure and delicate darling in a pink chiffon strapless". Instead, they were greeted by a quintet of crazy looking guys, performing disjointed, discordant, often tuneless, always unpredictable set of songs like they'd never heard before. But something has gone horribly wrong. Or delightfully astray, perhaps?

Alice Cooper the group at the tail of the Sixties were one of the most dynamic live bands in the world.

Live At The Whiskey is a brief, 25-minute showcase of the band in its early glory. It's also stood the test of time superbly: its humour stopping short where Zappa's goes hurtling over the edge; its songs accessible, but constructed with an imagination that would embarrass most of today's so-called left-field musical dissents; and its amateurish technique rough-hewn but turning up diamonds all the same.

Today Mueller has more than a touch of vintage Lennon-McCartney about the dual vocals, even the melody. Sing Low, Sweet Cheerio veers close to San Francisco sound of Jefferson Airplane. With Levity Ball, though, it's more manic sounds of British psychelia with a savage instrumental passage. And on Nobody Likes Me, we get the most musical re-creation of the band's sense of pantomime with a sound that conjures up the Electric Prunes at their most demented.

This LP Record is pressed in Europe by Manifesto Records and released for the first time on vinyl.
