Alice Cooper: Greatest Hits (Coloured Vinyl)

$45.99

Alice Cooper’s Greatest Hits is a greatest hits album by American rock band Alice Cooper, released in 1974. It features hit songs from their third album (Love It to Death) through their seventh and last album with the band’s original lineup (Muscle of Love).

This compilation’s song versions were remixed by Jack Richardson at the time, with the remix of “I’m Eighteen” being released as a single in the US. The reason behind remixing the songs was perhaps to boost its appeal as “new” versions because no new tracks were available for inclusion by the group as they were on hiatus at the time.

This compilation was expanded upon when, in 2001, Rhino released Mascara & Monsters: The Best of Alice Cooper, which includes the original single versions of the songs in addition to a number of Cooper’s post-1974 hits as a solo artist, filling up the entire CD.

Artwork
The album’s cover art was designed by Ernie Cefalu and features a sepia-toned Drew Struzan illustration of the band members in front of a 1930s garage, accompanied by such period movie stars as Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Robert Taylor, Edward G. Robinson, Jean Harlow, Peter Lorre, and Groucho Marx. The inner sleeve features a similar illustration of the band surrounded by these and other stars of the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s, including the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in the upper middle. The album was released by Friday Music records on vinyl in 2013 with a Gatefold cover, mimicking the 1974 Australian release of the album,[2] which was the only territory where it was originally released with a Gatefold sleeve.
