ALICE COOPER – Live From The Astroturf (2022)

By 1974 the Alice Cooper Group had risen to the upper echelon of rock stardom… and then, parted ways. In October 2015, over 40 years later, record store owner and superfan Chris Penn convinced the original line-up to reunite for a very special performance at his record store Good Records in Dallas, Texas.
The result is the upcoming release “Live From The Astroturf“, featuring the original ALICE COOPER Group consisting of Alice Cooper (vocals), Michael Bruce (guitar), Dennis Dunaway (bass) and Neal Smith (drums) – joined on stage by Alice’s current guitarist Ryan Roxie (standing in for the late Glen Buxton).
A packed audience, believing they had come to Good Records for Dennis Dunaway’s ‘Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs!’ book signing, were surprised to bear witness to a full-blown happening. The historic reunion show including all-time classics such as “No More Mr. Nice Guy”, “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out” is now becoming available for the very first time worldwide.
The sound quality is amazing, benefited by a terrific Mix / Mastering where all instruments & vocals come out clear, lively. Cooper is in top form, and we hear some killer solos…

Today, September 22, is the 35th-year anniversary of the release of ALICE COOPER‘s “comeback” album ”Constrictor”, and the legendary shock-rock icon continues to tour and release albums at an impressive pace.

To celebrate this rockin’ 1986’s album anniversary we’re featuring in exclusive the recent (December 2020) Japanese CD reissue of ”Constrictor” as part of the HR/HM 1000 Vol.2 series.
Writing the songs with guitarist Kane Roberts, Alice came up with very catchy and memorable ’80s style music that fit right alongside everything that was being released at that time: polished, commercial melodic hard rock produced by the men of the moment: Michael Wagener & Beau Hill.

ALICE COOPER – Detroit Stories (2021)

Named for the city that launched the original ALICE COOPER group on the road to success, “Detroit Stories” follows last year’s “Breadcrumbs” EP as a modern-day homage to the toughest and craziest Rock n Roll scene there ever was.
In 1970, fledgling producer Bob Ezrin walked into a farmhouse on the outskirts of Detroit to work with the Alice Cooper band. Abandoning flower power Los Angeles, because they were the opposite of the hippie peace and love ideal, Alice had brought his decidedly darker gang back to his birthplace to the legendary rock scene that gave birth to hard rock, garage rock, soul, funk… and more.
Detroit was the only place that recognized the Alice Cooper guitar driven hard rock sound and their crazy stage show. Detroit was a haven for the outcasts.
50 years later Alice and Ezrin gathered some legendary Detroit musicians in a Detroit studio to record ”Detroit Stories”, Alice Cooper’s new album that celebrates that spirit for a new era.

BILLION DOLLAR BABIES (Alice Cooper Band) – Battle Axe [HNE 3xCD Complete Edition Remastered] (2020)

Hear No Evil / Cherry Red are releasing tomorrow the most complete BILLION DOLLAR BABIES‘ album “Battle Axe” ever; fully remastered and with 2 extra discs.
Following Muscle Of Love in 1974, the original ALICE COOPER BAND took a break to consider solo projects outside of the band. The plan had been for the original Alice Cooper band to regroup and record in 1977, but by this time the name of the band had become very much synonymous with it’s lead singer – Vincent Furnier – who now had very much morphed into Alice as far as the public were concerned. The “solo” Alice record Welcome to My Nightmare had firmly separated Alice Cooper the singer from Alice Cooper the band.
Rather than abandon the intended album, drummer Neal Smith, guitarist Michael Bruce and bassist Dennis Dunaway joined forces with lead guitarist Mike Marconi and Alice Cooper keyboard player Bob Dolin, and signing to Polydor records, fashioned the abandoned Alice Cooper band album into ”Battle Axe”, calling themselves BILLION DOLLAR BABIES, a very deliberate nod to their previous incarnation.
The original album has now been augmented with a whole disc of pre-production demos, including non-album tracks ‘I Don’t Know Babe’, ‘Wallow Through This Madness’, ‘Only One Will Walk Away’ and ‘High Heels Hollywood’. The Billion Dollar Babies only played four live shows before disbanding, but thankfully someone was around to record the very first of these shows, in Flint, Michigan on 6th July 1977, put on CD3.

Legend ALICE COOPER announced the release of the EP titled “Breadcrumbs”, which will arrive on September 13 via earMusic, and confirmed a new studio album will be out next year.
“Breadcrumbs” is a tribute to the Rock heroes from Alice’s hometown Detroit city, which include covers of “Sister Anne” by MC5, “Your Mamma Won’t Like Me” by Suzi Quatro and “Devil With a Blue Dress” by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels.

ALICE COOPER – The Last Temptation [HNE Remaster + Japan Edition Bonus Disc] *EXCLUSIVE*

Alongside the recently posted ALICE COOPER remasters, it was requested some time ago as well “The Last Temptation” from the Cherry Red / Hear No Evil same remastered reissue series, now out of print and very hard to find. The sound quality is outstanding, and really improves the surprisingly flat original version. Additionally, we have as extra the bonus disc from the original Japanese limited edition, also a rarity nowadays.
This “The Last Temptation” remastered reissue – also titled “20th Anniversary Edition” – it was indeed released in 2014, twenty years after its original edition, and soon became out of stock.
After the more hair metal, mainstream “Hey Stoopid” in 1991, which followed the worldwide smash “Trash” in 1989, the conceptual nature of “The Last Temptation” was a major departure from the two more commercially orientated predecessors, whilst resurrecting some of the darker, macabre themes from earlier Alice’s career.

ALICE COOPER – Trash +2 [Expanded Remastered Edition] +2 Japan Bonus

There’s always something slightly disingenuous about the term ‘comeback album’ – especially when an artist has never really left. Such was the case with ALICE COOPER’s 1989 Epic Records release “Trash”. But one certainly sees why the expression would be used to describe “Trash”. Alice Cooper’s eighteenth studio release “Trash” became his first Top 20 album in the U.S. since...

ALICE COOPER – Hey Stoopid [Expanded Remastered Edition +3] Out Of Print

This jewel has been remastered / reissued by Cherry Red / Hear No Evil with a bunch of...
