'Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper' is based around a concert filmed during the Alice Cooper Group's infamous 'Billion Dollar Babies' US spring tour in 1973, with segments of old B/W movie footage edited in between songs.
The concert footage, though a little dark due to bad lighting, is awesome viewing, documenting the group's most theatrical stage show filmed during their commercial peak (subsequently the group, after recording one more album, more or less broke up and Alice Cooper himself continued as a solo artist taking the onstage theatrics to new heights). However the movie as a whole does suffer from the B/W segments, which are a little long and boring at times, their inclusion not necessary as the concert footage itself would have successfully carried the movie.
Interesting to note that the original version of this movie shown at its New York premiere featured comedy sketches of the group instead of the B/W segments. Apparently that version was badly received by the audience and the movie was then re-edited.
Overall, a near-classic presentation of the classic Alice Cooper Group at the height of their career, a movie worthy of seeking out.
