Recording information: Alexandra Palace (10/29/2011).
No More Mr. Nice Guy: Live is a two-disc set from 4 Worlds Media featuring Alice Cooper recorded at Alexandra Palace in London on September 29, 2011. Cooper's early Warner hits, including "I'm Eighteen," "School's Out," and "No More Mr. Nice Guy," are included, as are hits from his comeback in the '90s. The stand-out performance, especially for die-hard fans, is "Halo of Flies," originally on the 1971 release Killer, which Cooper and his band very rarely play live. Also of note is the final track, "Fire," with Arthur Brown on vocals. Unfortunately it doesn't add much to the other performances on this CD. No More Mr. Nice Guy: Live will definitely be of interest to Cooper fans, but casual listeners should stick with his studio albums. ~ Al Campbell
