ALICE COOPER / Lace And Whiskey (1977)

Alice became Maurice Escargot for this album.  Maurice is a P.I. with a love of 40’s and 50’s movies.  He was in a heavy alcoholic haze during the making of this so the marriage of 40’s and 50’s rock with 70’s instrumentation maybe seemed like a good idea but it wasn’t a success at the time.  Looking back now it has a certain unique charm that is fun every once in a while.  It slips in a number of silver age show tunes but removes the eerie, creepy songs that he was known for.  I'm kind of indifferent about it so I'll give it an average score.

Songs of Note: My God; You and Me
