Album of the Day
Muscle of Love
“It's very basic rock and roll throughout,” noted Alice Cooper of MUSCLE OF LOVE. “I really wanted this one to have more guts to it. More balls.” To that end, Jack Richardson and Jack Douglas helmed the 1973 Warner Bros. set instead of previous producer Bob Ezrin (who didn't see eye to eye with guitarist Michael Bruce during rehearsals). While sexual themes are prominent (as in the title track), the collection also includes Coop classic “Teenage Lament '74” and a guest-star-studded “Man with the Golden Gun,” which had been intended as a theme for the James Bond film of the same name. Bruce was born on this day in 1948, and in his honor we'll flex the Top 10, gold-certified MUSCLE OF LOVE.
