AliceCoopertophat Alice Cooper has rattled the cages of the establishment with his hard-rocking music and theatrical stagecraft for nearly five decades. Since his 1969 debut, Cooper has sold more than 50 million albums, headlined sold-out tours, influenced countless artists, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Because there is no rest for the wicked, Cooper will hit the road this summer for a massive North American tour with Mötley Crüe.

Rhino has the perfect soundtrack to haunt your nightmares with a new 15-CD boxed set that includes all of the albums that Cooper recorded with Warner Bros. Records, The Studio Albums 1969-1983 will be available on July 31st. The set will also be available digitally.

The set is presented in a clamshell box and includes 15 albums: Pretties For You (1969), Easy Action (1970), Love It To Death (1971), Killer (1971), School’s Out (1972), Billion Dollar Babies (1973), Muscle Of Love (1973), Welcome To My Nightmare (1975), Alice Cooper Goes To Hell (1976), Lace And Whiskey (1977), From The Inside (1978), Flush The Fashion (1980), Special Forces (1981), Zipper Catches Skin (1982), and DaDa (1983).

Alice Cooper along with guitarists Glen Buxton and Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway and drummer Neal Smith recorded seven albums together, including four consecutive platinum records that culminated with the number one album Billion Dollar Babies in 1973. This line-up generated indelible hard rock classics like I’m Eighteen, School’s Out, Elected, Hello Hooray, and No More Mr. Nice Guy.

After releasing the platinum-certified Alice Cooper’s Greatest Hits in 1974, Cooper launched a successful solo career in 1975 with Welcome To My Nightmare. The concept album about a child’s nightmares peaked at number five on the charts, was certified platinum, and featured the hit ballad Only Women Bleed.

Over the next eight years, Cooper recorded seven more solo albums for Warner Bros. Among the many highlights from that period are the ballad I Never Cry, the Top Ten smash You And Me from Lace And Whiskey, How You Gonna See Me Now off of From The Inside , and Clones (We’re All) from Flush the Fashion.

  1. Hey Eddie! Do you know if these will be remastered at all or just reissued? I know the sound quality on the original WB CDs is not good at all and am hoping they are remastered. Thanks!

  2. My understanding is these are not going to be Remasters. I love Alice Cooper, probably my favorite performer ever and own every Alice album (I know people love his work with his original band but he has some really great solo stuff too). I may buy this simply because I own everything else including DVD’s, live albums, etc. but with so few people buying CD’s and all, I don’t know that any boxset unless it has tons of extras has any real appeal anymore (and I am talking about all bands). Back in the 80’s and early 90’s, Pretties For You and Easy Action (the first two Alice Cooper albums) and the bizarre for their time but fun early 80’s albums were hard to find. Now they have been easily available again for years with reissues, etc. However, for those of you who are only casual fans or only own a few albums, 100 bucks for 15 CD’s isn’t bad. If you haven’t heard some of the early 80’s stuff, I recommend the Dada album, great stuff.
