Sounds – 23rd December 1972:
Alice Cooper had a store all to himself for his Christmas shopping in New York
last week. Alice, with snake, Yvonne and members of his group, had the run of
Alexander’s Department store in Manhatten one evening for their Christmas
shopping. The store’s Father Christmas was on hand to assist and , among other
things, Alice bought 22 rag dolls, 10 blue meanie dolls, twenty packs of
playing cards and fifty-seven albums, all of which were original motion picture
soundtracks from old Humphrey Bogart and Bela Lugosi films. Meanwhile Yvonne
curled up on a Monopoly Board so Alice bought the game for her.
Alice also bought a sable fur coat, and played table tennis with an
unidentified table-tennis champion called Mr Ping Pong. The winner took the fur
coat, and Alice won. After the shopping spree, it took six people half an
hour to load all the presents into an 18 foot long van.
