No Alice Cooper As Advertised

"Although this video shows great concert footage of various artists such as Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, it fails to show any footage of the advertised Alice Cooper. Just like as advertised on "Roger Daltrey: A Celebration - With Pete Townshend and Music of the Who (1994)," no Alice Cooper appears in this video either. Please see reviews for Roger Daltrey: A Celebration - With Pete Townshend and Music of the Who (1994) for further infomation:
This may not interest too many people, but since the DVD is listed under "Alice Cooper", and since he performed the song "I'm A Boy" at THIS concert, I went and bought it. BUT THEY CUT THE TRACK OUT! There's no, repeat NO, Alice Cooper track on this DVD! So buy it for any other reason than I did! Or look for a VHS copy of the whole concert or the 2-CD-set.
--Dr. Oliver Spang
DO NOT BUY if you are looking to see Alice Cooper because HE AINT IN IT!!!
The everlasting show

"As the same line-up is about to perform again in London in July 2000 it was fascinating to see these rock musicians playing 30 years ago. The camera work is very Seventies - handheld, close-up and all rather amateur - but the footage of London Teds jiving and having a good day out more than made up for that. Bo Diddley did a great guitar break, Screaming Lord Sutch was a bit of fun but the main stars were all on top form. Ignoring Jerry Lee's very strange pink sweater he did his customary set and also ignoring Little Richard's camping it up he showed what energy he had in that decade. But as usual Chuck Berry took the honours when closing the show. Good buy."
Not What You Are Being Told it is.

"This DVD (the one with the British flag as part of the picture) is not what is being claimed. It does have Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Haley, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry singing. It does not have all those extras that the other reviewers talk about. Like Screaming Lord Sutch, and that Magician. It is only 50 minutes long, although all info about it, including the case it comes in claims that it is 84 minutes long. So just be aware that you are not getting what you might believe you are getting. As for the actual DVD. Not that great. Jerry Lee really seems off in this one (his voice sounds shot). Little Richard sings ok if you like screeching. He seems very hostile, and that does not endear him to me. Chuck Berry is good, but he goes on a long time. The accoustics are not great, and as the sun goes down, the lighting is not good either. All in all I would not have gotten this if I'd known what it was really like, and that I was not even getting what was promised."
