School Days 12" Promotional Vinyl Album

1973, Warner Brothers, WB 66021

 

The very first Alice Cooper compilation was released outside of the USA in 1973 and included the two debut Group albums (i.e. Pretties For You and Easy Action) spread across two vinyl discs plus unique new artwork. The tracks appear in the same order as the original albums.

 

The sleeve features an unusual gatefold design that is hinged at the base (rather than the side as usually found) with the vinyl discs slotting in at the top. You need to rotate it when opened to view the landscape 'reflected' photos of Alice inside. Despite the other members of the Group being included on the front cover art, it was clear even at this stage that Alice was now the main focus of the marketing people.

 

This rare German 12" promotional copy features white Warner Brothers labels that state 'Unverkäufl. Warenprobe ohne Wert' and 'Echantillon gratuit / Trade Sample' which, converted to English, reads 'Not for sale. Sample without value' and 'Free sample / Trade Sample'.

School Days 12" Vinyl Album

1973, Warner Brothers, K66021

 

This UK version of School Days features Palm Tree Warner Brothers labels, although 1st pressings were provided with traditional green labels. Unlike the German promotional copy (above) the labels simply state 'SCHOOL DAYS' (i.e. no reference is made anywhere to the original album titles).

School Days 12" Vinyl Album

1973, Warner Brothers, 66021

 

This French version of School Days is almost identical to the UK pressing (above) but features slightly different text on the vinyl labels and back cover.

School Days 8-Track Album

1973, Warner Brothers, K866021

 

This UK 'Double Play' 8-track version of School Days features a black cartridge and includes the original compilation cover artwork and track listings on the front. The wrap-around sticker also provides the product code and album details on the side and further track listings and credits on the rear. This copy includes a generic black and blue card sleeve with cut-out holes and price tag.

 

One notable aspect of this release is that the track order is different to the usual arrangement, with Living, Refrigerator Heaven, Laughing At Me and Still No Air appearing out-of-place (in the case of the first two, they now appear within the wrong album). This was presumably due to the need to adequately fit everything into the four 'programs' on the cartridge.

 

An error on this release is that Changing, Arranging is incorrectly titled Changing, Changing on both the front and back.

School Days Cassette Album

1973, Warner Brothers, 466 021 A/B

 

This French 'Double Duree' cassette version of School Days includes a basic J-Card featuring abridged artwork, track listings and credits. Inside is an orange tape with printed additional track listings.

 

As with the UK 8-track album (above), an error on this release is that Changing, Arranging is incorrectly titled Changing, Changing on both the J-Card and cassette. A further unique issue is that Sing Low, Sweet Cheerio is incorrectly titles Sing Low, Sweet Cherrio throughout.

Alice Cooper Two Originals CD Album

2005, Progressive Line, PL 602

This Australian compilation CD is similar to School Days (above) in that it features both Pretties for You and Easy Action. Unusually for a compilation, both albums are shoe-horned onto a single CD meaning you can enjoy all the tracks without having to change discs.

 

The package itself is very simple with just a jewel case and fold-out paper insert. However, the iconic imagery from both albums are nicely mixed together to create an appealing product for any Alice Cooper Group fan.

 

An error on this release is that Mr. And Misdemeanor is incorrectly titled Mr. & Mrsdemeanor on the back.

Greatest Hits 12" Promotional Vinyl Album

1974, Warner Brothers, W 2803

In 1974 (a year after the release of what proved to be the Alice Cooper Group's final album, Muscle Of Love) a 2nd compilation vinyl album was released. This featured 2 tracks from Love It To Death (I'm Eighteen and Is It My Body), 3 tracks from Killer (Desperado, Under My Wheels and Be My Lover), 1 track from School's Out (the title track), 4 tracks from Billion Dollar Babies (Hello Hooray, Elected, No More Mr Nice Guy and Billion Dollar Babies) and 2 tracks from Muscle Of Love (Teenage Lament '74 and Muscle Of Love). Most / all the songs are understood to have been slightly remixed but any differences will only be noticeable to the most ardent of fans.

 

The most notable aspect of this release is the magnificent sepia-toned cover art, which was designed by artist Drew Struzan (who worked on films like Star Wars and Indiana Jones and also drew the cover of the Welcome To My Nightmare album). The image wraps around the front and back covers and features the group members outside a garage surrounded by numerous famous faces of the period (about the mid 1900's) including Humphrey Bogart and Groucho Marx. Further artwork (by Bill Garland) also appears on the inner sleeve, with the band appearing again (this time complete with instruments) together with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Errol Flynn.

 

This album nicely closes off the Alice Cooper Group era and the selection of tracks is a pretty fitting tribute to them, even if it does miss out the first 2 albums entirely, plus the vast majority of School's Out.

 

This USA 12" promotional 1st pressing includes an additional pink Warner Brothers 'PROMOTIONAL COPY NOT FOR SALE' sticker on the front. The disc features Palm Tree Warner Brothers labels, which also state 'PROMOTION NOT FOR SALE'.

Greatest Hits 12" Promotional Vinyl Album

1974, Warner Brothers, WB 56043

This rare German 12" promotional copy of Greatest Hits is practically identical to the USA version (above) only that it features alternative white Warner Brothers vinyl labels that state 'Unverkäufl.

Greatest Hits 12" Vinyl Album

1974, Warner Brothers, W 2803

This Australian 12" 1st pressing of Greatest Hits is unique as, unlike all other known versions, it features a gatefold sleeve that includes the magnificent additional artwork by Drew Struzan that was originally provided on the inner sleeve of the USA promotional copy (above). This approach is much better as it allows you to see all the famous caricatures in one go (rather than having to flip the sleeve over), which was surely the original intention when this piece of artwork was produced.

Greatest Hits 12" Vinyl Album

1982 (Approx), Warner Brothers, K56043

This UK 12" vinyl re-issue of Greatest Hits is similar to the USA promotional copy (above) only that it features predominantly black and white artwork (rather than sepia tone), cream Warner Brothers labels and there is no promotional sticker on the front of the sleeve. It also sadly does not have feature the superb illustrated inner sleeve.

Greatest Hits 8-Track Album

1974, Warner Brothers, M8 3107

 

This USA 8-track album features a black cartridge and includes the original cover artwork and track listings on the front.

 

One notable aspect of this release is that the track order is different to the usual arrangement, with the majority of the them appearing out-of-place. This was presumably due to the need to adequately fit everything into the four 'programs' on the cartridge.

The Definitive Alice Cooper CD Album

2001, Rhino Records, WE833

Although the cover markets this European CD as a solo Alice Cooper product, it is in fact the Greatest Hits album (above) but with the addition of 9 post Alice Cooper Group tracks. These cover the period between 1975's Welcome To My Nightmare and 1991's Hey Stoopid and are as follows:

 

> Only Women Bleed, Department of Youth and Welcome To My Nightmare (from the Welcome To My Nightmare album);

 

> I Never Cry (from the Goes To Hell album);

 

> You And Me (from the Lace And Whiskey album);

 

> How You Gonna See Me Now and From The Inside (from the From The Inside album);

 

> Poison (from the Trash album); and

 

> Hey Stoopid (from the Hey Stoopid album). 

 

The booklet features an introduction by Alice himself, a short solo-oriented biography by biographer Jeffrey Morgan plus track listings credits and images from Alice's solo career.

This USA compilation is again the original Greatest Hits album (above) with 9 solo Alice Cooper tracks added. These are the same as The Definitive Alice Cooper release (above) only with Hey Stoopid randomly swapped with Clones (from the Flush The Fashion album).

 

The external artwork is different throughout compared to The Definitive Alice Cooper. The booklet, however, is almost identical only with the track listings modified and the images in slightly different order (see example below).

The Beast Of Alice Cooper 12" Vinyl Album

1989, Warner Brothers, 241 781-1

Not to be confused with The Best Of Alice Cooper (above), the Beast Of Alice Cooper was released in 1989 during Alice's highly successful Trash period. It marked his first compilation as a solo artist and was also the first Alice Cooper Group related compilation since 1974's Greatest Hits (above). I use the term very loosely though as the album actually features only 2 solo songs (i.e. Only Women Bleed and Department Of Youth), with the remaining 12 songs coming from the Group era. This is very much a testament to the quality of the Group's material though and is not a criticism.

 

This European vinyl version comes in a simple sleeve, features cream Warner Brothers vinyl labels and includes a variety of images from Alice's career to date plus a short biography on the back by RAW Magazine writer Dave Dickson. An odd thing to note though is that both the album cover and inner sleeve features artwork from solo albums like Goes To Hell and From The Inside, but they aren't actually represented (i.e. Only Women Bleed and Department Of Youth are from the Welcome To My Nightmare album).

 

This release is no longer a crucial addition to your collection, having been eclipsed by The Life And Crimes of Alice Cooper, but it has a special place in my heart as it was one of the first albums that I purchased as a kid.

2012, Warner Brothers, 81227 98357

This European release is an excellent introduction to the Alice Cooper Group as it includes the full versions of their first five albums.

Again, all you get here is the CD's in card sleeves, which are housed in a slipcase, but this still offers excellent value for new fans.

This USA promotional compilation CD comes in a jewel case and features 12 tracks from the Constrictor and Raise Your Fist And Yell albums (6 from each to be precise, with the material from the latter presented first). Also provided is a simple paper inlay.  

 

Text from seller:

 

This was going to be a compilation of the MCA years Constrictor, Raise Your Fist And Yell & Prince Of Darkness.

 

It never made it out to the public they only made 100 to give out to radio stations and media. But were hit with legal issues and pulled never released. But I have some here that were not destroyed.

 

Brand new never played. They have been opened but mint condition as they were never in full production and shrink wrapped.

 

So this is a very rare item from MCA promo CD made in 1995 and only 100 were made for the promo run as they dropped this project.

2019, Music On Vinyl, MOVLP 2324

Shortly after the USA re-issues (above) came a further European release of Classicks by Music On Vinyl. Limited to 2,000 individually stamped copies (of which mine is #001775), this version features a nice glossy traditional gatefold sleeve and additional insert that include the additional artwork from the original CD release (below).

 

Also provided are two 180 gram translucent red discs (compared to just one disc for the other vinyl releases). This means that you have to play it at 45 RPM speed, which is the traditional speed for 7" vinyl singles, but also the optimum speed for audiophile vinyl albums.

 

A further version of this release was in 2020, which was exactly the same only that it featured black 180 gram vinyl disc.

Freedom For Frankenstein, Hits & Pieces 1984-91 CD Album

1998, Raven Records, RVCD-69

This Australian compilation CD offers an assortment of material between 1984 and 1994 (not 1991 as stated on the case), with recordings covering the Constrictor (3 tracks), Raise Your Fist And Yell (2 tracks), Trash (3 tracks), Hey Stoopid (2) and The Last Temptation (1 track) albums.

 

Also provided are the previously available, non-album tracks, I Got A Line On You (Trash era), It Rained All Night and Fire (both from the Hey Stoopid era) plus live recordings of Go To Hell, Ballad Of Dwight Fry, Sick Things and a great medley of Only Women Bleed and Wind Up Toy. The first two live tracks were recorded at Cincinnati Gardens in 1987, whereas the latter two were recorded at Electric Lady Studios, New York in 1991 and were all featured on previous releases during the Trash and The Last Temptation eras respectively. 

 

To top things off you get a great 16-page booklet featuring a biography by 'Australia's Biggest Alice Cooper Fan' Andrew Carpenter, lots of great images and track listings and credits.

Poison CD Album

2003, Sony Music Media, 5113052

This European compilation CD features two discs and includes tracks from the Sony catalogue of Alice Cooper albums Trash (7 tracks), Hey Stoopid (7 tracks) and The Last Temptation (6 tracks). Also included are three tracks from Sony's live catalogue (School's Out, Billion Dollar Babies and No More Mr Nice Guy), which means they are sourced from previously released recordings from either the Cincinnati Gardens (1987), Trashes The World at Birmingham NEC (1989) or Electric Lady Studios (1991) shows. Finally, the cover of Jimmy Hendrix's Fire from the Hey Stoopid era is also included.

 

The packaging features photos from the Brutal Planet tour, which is rather odd seeing as no material from that era are present here.

 

Inside is a rather disappointing folded paper inlay, which contains only track listings and credits. Also, Fire is described as "previously unreleased" but that isn't true as it had turned up several times before (most notably as a B Side to the Hey Stoopid era single Love's A Loaded Gun).

Legends CD Album

2005, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, 82876709092

This European compilation CD set features three separate jewel cases housed in a slipcase. The first two discs contain material from the Trash (6 tracks), Hey Stoopid (12 tracks) and The Last Temptation (6 tracks) eras. The third disc features tracks from Sony's live catalogue, which means they are sourced from previously released recordings from either the Cincinnati Gardens (1987), Trashes The World at Birmingham NEC (1989) or Electric Lady Studios (1991) shows.

 

The most notable aspects of this release are the reference to Bed Of Nails Of Nails being a 'Clean Version' and the inclusion of the live version of Spark In The Dark (from Birmingham NEC), which had not previously been released on any official CD. However, Bed Of Nails doesn't appear to be any different to the album version (with Alice still promising to "drive you like a hammer on a bed of nails") plus Spark In The Dark (and Poison) do not seem to play at the right speed, with them sounding faster than expected.

The Best Of Alice Cooper (Spark In The Dark) CD Album

2009, Sony Music, 88697536532

Not to be confused with either The Best Of Alice Cooper (the other one) or The Beast Of Alice Cooper (both above), this 2-disc compilation by Sony Music features a whopping 29 tracks from Trash (8 tracks), Hey Stoopid (12 tracks) and The Last Temptation (9 tracks) in a mixed order. 

 

Also provided are three live songs, No More Mr Nice Guy, Billion Dollar Babies and School's Out, which means they are sourced from previously released recordings from either the Cincinnati Gardens (1987), Trashes The World at Birmingham NEC (1989) or Electric Lady Studios (1991) shows.

 

Rather than listing the songs from the 3 featured albums that are included, it's easier to simply state the ones that DO NOT feature. These are Why Trust You and This Maniac's In Love With You (Trash) and Lullaby (The Last Temptation). Quite why they had to be omitted is beyond me, especially as they could have been provided at the expense of the 3 live tracks.

The 18-page booklet contains abridged material from the original album releases and includes track listings, lyrics and credits. Oddly, each album is oriented a different way, which means that the cover of Dragontown is upside down inside the case and that the images where the 2 booklets meet in the centre are also displayed in opposite directions.
