The single The Sound Of A shows the renowned shock rocker in a completely new light with The Sound Of A, meaning the sound of Alice, displaying a very interesting sound. With a slightly psychedelic and mellow atmosphere, partly created by organ and percussion sounds, the song leaves the listener with a mellow – even spacey – feeling. Despite the self-referential lyrics, it becomes apparent that with this song Alice Cooper explores new musical horizons while staying true to the essence of what makes him successful.

The single is going to be released right in time for the legend s 70th birthday. In addition to the title
track, The Sound of A, the single also includes four never before released tracks that were recorded during a fulminant show in Columbus in 2016 with the current band. Available in CD Digi, 10″ limited white vinyl and digital.

“The Last Temptation” is the 20th studio album by rock singer Alice Cooper, released in July 1994 via Epic Records. It centers on a boy named Steven (also the name of the protagonist in Cooper’s earlier work, Welcome to My Nightmare), and a mysterious showman. The showman, with apparent supernatural abilities, attempted with the use of twisted versions of morality plays to persuade Steven to join his traveling show, “The Theater of the Real – The Grand-est Guignol!”, where he would “never grow up”.

Rock star opulence came to an explosive head in 1973 when Alice Cooper and company hit #1 on the U.S. and worldwide charts with Billion Dollar Babies, their sixth and most successful album. Produced by Bob Ezrin, it is also one of the best rock n roll records of all time, and the subsequent tour became their biggest rock production to date. Capitalizing on the albums themes of good-old decadence and horror, the show climaxed with a guillotine execution of Alice. The album and the tour catapulted the band into the worlds preeminent pied pipers of teenage trash culture.

Coming off such conceptual, theatrical, sleazy hard rock records as the massively successful School’s Out (1972) and Billion Dollar Babies (1973), the Alice Cooper group decided that their next release would be more along the lines of their earlier, more straightforward work (à la Love It to Death). While Muscle of Love was a gold-certified Top Ten success, it performed below expectations (their previous two albums peaked at number two and number one, respectively) and would unfortunately prove to be the original Alice Cooper band’s last studio album together. The album may not be as coherent as their previous classics (producer Bob Ezrin took a leave of absence) and more filler is present than usual, yet Muscle of Love is perhaps Alice Cooper’s most underrated record – more than a few overlooked and forgotten classics reside here. The two best-known tracks are undoubtedly the Top 20 anthem “Teenage Lament ’74,” which features none other than Liza Minnelli and the Pointer Sisters on backing vocals, and the boisterous title track. But other tracks are just as good – the Led Zep-stomping opener, “Big Apple Dreamin’ (Hippo),” the gentle “Hard Hearted Alice” (a precursor to Cooper’s future ballad-oriented direction), the raging “Working Up a Sweat,” and “Man with the Golden Gun” (which was written for the James Bond movie of the same name, but rejected). A forgotten hard rock classic.

Alice Cooper – Billion Dollar Babies (2000) [DVD-Audio ISO]

Alice Cooper – Billion Dollar Babies
Artist: Alice Cooper | Album: Billion Dollar Babies | Style: Rock | Year: 2000 [1973 original] | Quality: DVD-Audio (MLP 5.1 96kHz/24Bit, MLP 2.0 96kHz/24Bit, Dolby AC3 5.1) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 10 + 5 bonus (live) | Size: 5.29 Gb | Recovery: 5% | Covers: in archive | Release: ©2000 Rhino | Warner Archives (R9-76663 USA) | Note: Watermarked

With Billion Dollar Babies, Alice Cooper refined the raw grit of their earlier work in favor of a slightly more polished sound (courtesy of super-producer Bob Ezrin), resulting in a mega-hit album that reached the top of the U.S. album charts. Song for song, Billion Dollar Babies is probably the original Alice Cooper group’s finest and strongest. Such tracks as “Hello Hooray,” the lethal stomp of the title track, the defiant “Elected” (a rewrite of an earlier song, “Reflected”), and the poison-laced pop candy of “No More Mr. Nice Guy” remain among Cooper’s greatest achievements. Also included are a pair of perennial concert standards — the disturbing necrophilia ditty “I Love the Dead” and the chilling macabre of “Sick Things” — as well as such strong, lesser-known selections as “Raped and Freezin’,” “Unfinished Sweet,” and perhaps Cooper’s most overlooked gem, “Generation Landslide.” Nothing seemed like it could stop this great hard rock band from overtaking the universe, but tensions between the members behind the scenes would force the stellar original AC band to split up after just one more album. Not only is Billion Dollar Babies one of Cooper’s very best; it remains one of rock’s all-time, quintessential classics.

Alice Cooper – Welcome to my Nightmare (2001) [DVD-Audio ISO]

Alice Cooper – Welcome to my Nightmare
Artist: Alice Cooper | Album: Welcome to my Nightmare | Style: Rock | Year: 2001 [1975 original] | Quality: DVD-Audio (MLP 5.1 96kHz/24Bit, MLP 2.0 96kHz/24Bit, Dolby AC3 5.1) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 11 | Size: ~4.15 Gb | Recovery: 5% | Covers: in archive | Release: Atlantic | Rhino (8122-76785-9), 2001 | Note: Watermarked

With the 1974 disintegration of the original Alice Cooper group, Alice was free to launch a solo career. He wisely decided to re-enlist the services of Bob Ezrin for his solo debut, Welcome to My Nightmare, which was a concept album tied into the story line of the highly theatrical concert tour he launched soon after the album’s release. While the music lost most of the gritty edge of the original AC lineup, Welcome to My Nightmare remains Alice’s best solo effort — while some tracks stray from his expected hard rock direction, there’s plenty of fist-pumping rock to go around. The disco-flavored, album-opening title track would be reworked on the stage as more of a hard rock tune, while “Some Folks” dips into cabaret territory, and “Only Women Bleed” is a sensitive ballad that became a Top Ten hit. But the rockers serve as the album’s foundation — “Devil’s Food,” “The Black Widow,” “Department of Youth,” and “Cold Ethyl” are all standouts, as is the more tranquil yet eerie epic “Steven.” Despite this promising start to Cooper’s solo career, the majority of his subsequent releases were often not as focused and were of varying quality.
