Time Flies, Remember Death?

No, not the well-known motto of the Knights of Columbus (which I have been a proud member of since 1981), but a reference to the fact that it was 50 years ago today, (March 9, 1971) the the Alice Cooper Album, Love it to Death was released.

Ol’ Black Eyes

Love it to Death was the second Alice Cooper album I ever purchased.  The first, being Killer, which was the first album (along with Black Sabbath Paranoid) that I ever bought with my own money.

My parents were pretty sure I was on the express train to hell and destined to be a Satan worshipper after hearing the sounds emanating from my room while they listened to their Polka favorites.

Well, here we are fifty years later and Alice is a very serious Christian, sober and a philanthropic gazillionaire.  Oh, and he’s still putting out successful albums and touring at age 73, with the best backing band he has ever had, continuing to sell out shows at large venues.

Me, I’m just a guy with a bunch of Alice Cooper albums.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you 37.04 minutes of  Love It To Death.

Anyone else remember or still have this album?

    March , 1971 – on the other side of the world, listening to a different king of music. But, Cooper’s career is amazing. Back then I thought he would be a one record freak show. what do I know?

    He’s a fascinating man, and I enjoy his music now more than I did at the time. I think I was late to appreciate him!
