WHAT CAME AROUND - COMES AROUND AGAIN! TALK ABOUT TIMING!!! Though all the other songs on this album were rerecorded in the studo, in 1995 Arlo returned to the church near Stockbridge, Massachusetts where he originally wrote Alice's Restaurant. On the 30th anniversary of the massacree, on Thanksgiving, before a live audience, in the place where it all began, he does "Alice" again with some historic footnotes added to the original, creating a return to the scene of the crime in ways that make this version of the famous record the one to stand for all time.

Groovy retake on a classic album.
40 Years Later & Still Good

"What can I say ? 40 years ago Arlo Guthrie wrote Alice's Restaurant and it was fun and interesting and a little bit naughty. To listen to Arlo re-sing and remaster this classic album is a real treat. His voice has not changed one bit and he adds just a little bit of humour to the new version of Alice that stirs up a little giggle and makes you realise that if you can have a sense of humour about religion, or politics or yourself then the world is a better place. Anything that can make you smile in this day and age has won my vote. Arlo Guthrie has done the world of folk music proud over the years and is still going strong. And who would have thought that his Motorcycle Song would be still so good after all this time ? It sounds like this album was only recorded yesterday. A timeless classic to make you smile."

"My original CD of Alice's Restaurant wore out years ago. Having recently seen Arlo live in South Australia I was delighted to find this 30th Anniversary edition. I was even moreso when I found the live version of the title track was virtually his live show performance. The album remains a worthy purchase, even if you have the original."
