Toronto Rock 'n' Roll Revival 1969, Volume IV is a live album of the Alice Cooper Band. Due to the fact that the recording is owned by a private party, it is unauthorized but not a bootleg. [2] It features Alice Cooper's infamous chicken-throwing performance at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival at Varsity Stadium in Toronto on September 13, 1969 and showcases the early psychedelic music style of Cooper and his band in support of their very first album release, Pretties for You .

Contents

Although the album was originally released on vinyl in 1982, it has been re-released many times over the years on vinyl, cassette, CD, and digital download by various record labels under different titles, using alternative track titles and track orders. Many of these re-releases additionally include two 1964 studio tracks by Ronnie Hawkins, falsely credited on the album to Alice Cooper.

In 1996, Brian Nelson, Alice Cooper's personal assistant, said concerning this releases: [3] "The rights to the recording were sold by Alice's management at the time of the recording to a third party. That party has licensed out the rights to the recording many times to various companies. Alice Cooper do not make a penny from it. My theory is that the two non-Alice songs somehow wound up on the original master tape. The distributors not knowing and not particularly caring, put the album out of the tape as is. When the album was pressed again later by other companies, they didn't bother to check if all the songs were Alice or not. They would have no particular reason to." [2]

In 2012 the label Applebush released another version of this concert with the title Nobody Likes Us under the moniker of The Alice Cooper Group. This is the first known CD release to feature the whole concert speed corrected, correct song titles, and chronological track listing. [4] Guitarist Michael Bruce advised how to name and to arrange the titles correctly. [5] The sound quality is also better than on all of the other releases. [2] As a bonus it also contains recordings of a concert at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco on March 30, 1969, but the sound quality of that show is poor.

Alternate releases

Since the first release in 1982 this Toronto festival show has been released many times from many different labels with many different cover artworks and track listings. [2] Noteworthy is that the track listing differs very often. Most editions have eight tracks as the original release. Some editions have seven tracks. These ones merged the "Group Instrumental" and "I've Written Home to Mother". A few releases since 2000 consist of nine tracks. These releases added a medley of four songs: "Ain't That Just Like a Woman", "Goin' to the River", "Nobody Likes Me (Live)" and "Science Fiction (Live)". But this medley doesn't include any new material. It just contains parts of these four songs you can already find on this release, which were simply put together. Worth mentioning is, that there is only one release except the completely correct Nobody Likes Us since 1982, which omitted the two Ronnie Hawkins songs: A 1988 cassette release via Golden Circle named Science Fiction.

Another interesting detail is, that some releases mention strange songwriters for all the Alice Cooper compositions (not the Ronnie Hawkins ones). Probably this happened because of all the wrong song titles.

Digital only releases

Noteworthy is, that Live At Toronto Rock 'N' Roll Revival 1969 from 2018 is the only one digital release to date which omits the Ronnie Hawkins tracks and partly uses the correct song titles. "An Instrumental" and "I've Written Home to Mother" weren't renamed, but it is mentioned that these songs are parts of "Lay Down and Die, Goodbye".

Recorded at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival, it was the first live album released by any member of the Beatles separately or together. John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono received a phone call from the festival's promoters John Brower and Kenny Walker, and then assembled a band in a very short space of time to play at the festival, which was due to start the following day. The band included Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann, and drummer Alan White. The group had brief rehearsals before appearing on the stage to perform several songs; one of which, "Cold Turkey", was first performed live at the festival. After returning home, Lennon mixed the album in a day.

<i>Pretties for You</i> 1969 studio album by Alice Cooper

Pretties for You is the debut studio album by American rock band Alice Cooper, released on June 25, 1969 by Straight Records. At this time, the name "Alice Cooper" referred to the band and not its lead singer Vincent Furnier, although he was also known as Alice Cooper. The album has a psychedelic flavor to it; the group had yet to develop the more concise hard rock sound that they would become famous for. Most of the tracks feature unusual time signatures and arrangements, jarring syncopation, expressive dynamics, sound effects, and an eclectic range of music influences. A few songs, such as "Levity Ball", show the influence of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, with whom the band hung out during the British group's U.S. tour. Alice Cooper guitarist Glen Buxton stated he could listen to Barrett's guitar playing for hours on end.

People Get Ready Song by The Impressions

"People Get Ready" is a 1965 single by the Impressions, and the title track from the People Get Ready album. The single is the group's best-known hit, reaching number-three on the Billboard R&B Chart and number 14 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The gospel-influenced track was a Curtis Mayfield composition that displayed the growing sense of social and political awareness in his writing.

Sweet Toronto is a documentary by D.A. Pennebaker of the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival, a one-day festival held September 13, 1969 at Varsity Stadium on the campus of the University of Toronto and attended by some 20,000 persons. The event was produced by John Brower and Ken Walker. John Lennon, who seven days later would officially resign as a member of the Beatles, played as part of the Plastic Ono Band, whose members also included Yoko Ono, Klaus Voorman, Alan White, and Eric Clapton. The video also features a selection of other acts: Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, and Bo Diddley. The actual concert lasted twelve hours and included Alice Cooper and Chicago Transit Authority among other acts, but Pennebaker's documentary focuses mainly on the final hours of the concert. At the time of the performance Yoko Ono's popularity was sufficiently low that the audience booed and left the Plastic Ono Band performance. There was a similar response from film reviewers at the time. The performances "and this film have grown in interest and watchability since that time, particularly given the rarity of such thorough documentation of these key performers' work in concert."

Second only to The Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands, Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups, and one of the world's best-selling groups of all time, having sold more than 100 million records.
