Early Alice Cooper And His Local Band The Spiders
Long before the above picture was taken, Rock And Roll HOF inductee [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alice Cooper[/lastfm] had a band called [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Spiders[/lastfm]. They made a couple of singles that got a lot of airplay here in Phoenix and Tucson in 1965-66. One of the songs was called Don’t Blow Your Mind . Unless you were from this area originally you probably haven’t heard it, but that’s about to change.
Here’s the record – and a small bonus before the song. Somebody was recording Tucson radio in 1966 (KFIF – 1550) when an ad for a dance with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Spiders[/lastfm] played. It’s priceless.
