1973 was a banner year for the legendary Alice Cooper and his band with their smash hit album Muscle Of Love. As a seventh album in his longstanding career with Warner Bros. Records, Muscle Of Love was a hard rocking event which many of his fans point to as one of their favorite Alice Cooper albums of choice. Its easy to hear why!
To add to his continuing phenomenal successes, Muscle Of Love was another Alice Cooper top ten album to rock the charts. It also was a return to their more hard rocking sounds as first heard on their first albums like Killer, while blending theatrical stage show persona with prog-rock and heavy metal workouts which have since become synonymous with the Alice Cooper legacy.
Handling their own production chores with Jack Richardson and Jack Douglas, Alice Cooper and his legendary band (Michael Bruce-guitar/keys, Glen Buxton-lead guitar, Neal Smith-drums and Dennis Dunaway-bass) assembled some of their finest material ever for this gold status effort.
Thanks to hard rock singles like Teenage Lament 74 and deep album tracks like Crazy Little Child and Big AppleDreamin (Hippo), Muscle Of Love quickly developed into an exciting listening experience for the fans and radio stations around the globe. Upon first remembrances of this masterpiece, a treasure trove of classic hard rock sounds truly awaits you. Not only do you get classics like Never Been Sold Before and the funk rock fusion of Woman Machine, even more standouts abound including the James Bond inspired Man With The Golden Gun and the hard rockin Working Up A Sweat. Track for track, guitar riff to guitar riff, Alice Coopers Muscle Of Love was an awesome hard rock masterwork achievement.
