About this deal

I would love an acoustic sounds quality level box of the first 3 LPs done AAA, but unlikely to happen. The three alternative tracks do not differ greatly from the finished articles, just a little rougher round the edges.

Celui qui a la chance de ne pas connaître cet album va prendre une bonne grosse taloche dans la tronche : 8 titres meilleurs les uns que les autres. An amazing set from the Mar y Sol Pop Festival that shows the incredible musicianship of the band, with a lot of the songs extended into jams, there’s even some mean harp playing by Alice himself! The collection also gives fans an unreleased live recording of the band’s performance at Mar Y Sol Pop Festival in Puerto Rico on April 2, 1972. Killer is the fourth studio album by American rock band Alice Cooper, released in November 1971 by Warner Bros.Live album sounds good not great, but is from such a magical period for the band I’ll take what I can get. Desperado” is a brilliant track and it brings side one to a perfect close with remembrance disguised as bravado. Alongside Welcome to My Nightmare, it is one of only two Alice Cooper albums where every song has been played live, although "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" has never been played since the end of the supporting Killer Tour, while "You Drive Me Nervous" was not played subsequent to the Killer Tour until 1999, and has never been performed since 2006.

And it sees Alice rollin’ hastily outta bed out from under a mountain of empty Budweiser cans, applying his smeared, runny mascara all around his glazballs with a clawed, talon’d hand then running his fingers through his ratty, knotted black mane, quickly hooking Katchina the snake ‘round his neck, throws back the warm backwash from the last beer of the afternoon and he’s off -- And so are The Coopers, in full force for the duration of this airtight, upright and skintight rock’n’roll album. Packaging is good, but I would have preferred the track by track notes and essay in a booklet and more photos on the tri fold. Here, the notorious “Dead Babies” and title track, “Killer” comprise the dark, two-part epic that live resulted in a) Alice chopping apart baby dolls and b) the ritual hanging of Alice himself. Desperado", along with "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover" have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper. Alice’s vocals are at their roughest and razor-gargled best on “Killer,” too: They scrawl all over “Under My Wheels” like the retardedly etched lettering on the cover and open up the proceedings with all the teenaged head rush of a highly anticipated Friday night concert just after racing directly home from school.That is, until the title is bawled out so loud, you go rushing for the volume to turn it down lest your parents hear that scrawny manic with the crazy spider-eyes screaming “DEAD BABIES! Tellingly, the last lyric in the song is “you never will understand” and by this point if you’re still trying to comprehend the lyrics you’re trying too hard because the point of Alice Cooper’s best albums are just to suspend disbelief and go along quietly and no one will get hurt (Except Alice, but he’s the professional here. If you ask any rock fan for the best album of 1971,your likely to get the following answer - Zep 4,Sabbath's Master of Reality or maybe At The Filmore by the Allman's,all are excellent choices as is this album 'KILLER'. And since Jim had just died months before in July, disinterring The Doors made sense as a poetic tribute.

Maybe it was considered to be not possible to manufacture (my LP calendar did fall off after a while of use) see photo or maybe the photo content may have not been very PC for 2023. At the opposite end of 1971 from “Love It To Death” stalked Alice Cooper’s fourth album, “Killer” as an aptly titled exhibition of no-frills, highly-ratcheted and the very tightest knit mesh of a rock’n’roll straightjacket. Liner notes Archived 2011-07-19 at the Wayback Machine from " The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper", Rhino Records Box Set, 1999, Catalog No: RHIN 75680.

on the Billboard 200 album chart, and the two singles " Under My Wheels" and " Be My Lover" made the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Although based on an in-flight meeting guitarist Michael Bruce had with the little old lady seated next to him, you gotta give the Coopers credit for being able to concoct something far more rock’n’roll into it; and it IS total Rock’n’Roll, by the way.
