Editors’ Notes

The Alice Cooper band was one of the early ‘70s most visceral hard rock bands. Their stage show with snakes and guillotines made them notorious but it was their tunes that made them memorable. Billion Dollar Babies is their fourth and final studio album with producer Bob Ezrin, who intuitively understood how to balance the band’s theatrical flourishes with the lean, mean hard rock at their core. “Hello Hooray,” “Elected,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and the title track are further manifestations of their great relationship, tuneful yet menacing, frightening but exciting. While their singer Vincent Furnier would soon apply the Alice Cooper moniker to his solo career and turn further to shtick, here such touches as the necrophilia anthem “I Love the Dead” and the shuffling power of “Generation Landslide” sound incredibly sincere in their grandiosity. The deluxe edition is a special treat since it includes 11 cuts from the group’s 1973 tour that finally prove the group’s stage show command, along with several studio session outtakes.

Customer Reviews

Awesome

This band was just plain awesome. This album is a must buy for anybody, and BTW, the soundbite for Billion Dollar Babies is not the actual song. They screwed it up I guess. The actual song is totally different. More drums and guitar, baby!

Don't forget the Coop, eh

Always underated, but I ask you, where would Reznor or Manson be w/o the Coop? Generation Landslide is one of the greatest unknown tracks in rock history. If you claim to have a collection of rock music and don't have this, you're a liar.

"Loving Every Second; Every Moment; Every Scream!"

.."And I'm Feelin' Mean!"..(I remember when my little brother first played "Billion Dollar Babies" up in his room!) It was a real "Rude Awakening" from the James Taylor/CSN&Y/Joni Mitchell bag we were all so "Deep Into" back then! Yet; We both really liked it; And "Babies" still "Shocks "Em & Rocks 'Em" some 30+ years on! {Yes; there would simply not be any: Jane's Addiction or Marilyn Manson if old Vince Furnier hadn't shown us all the way!} <Do You remember the "House Band" at the party in the film: "Diary Of A Mad Housewife"?-That was "The Alice Cooper Band!">From "Hello" to "Dead"; "Billion Dollar Babies" is a super "Smokin' Seventies Set!"...by Grimmbo.

Originally, there was a band called Alice Cooper led by a singer named Vincent Damon Furnier. Under his direction, Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, heavy metal, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood, and huge boa constrictors, all coordinated by the heavily made-up Furnier. By that time, Furnier had adopted the name...
