About this deal

The collection also gives fans an unreleased live recording of the band’s performance at Mar Y Sol Pop Festival in Puerto Rico on April 2, 1972.

The album reached number 21 on the Billboard 200 album chart, and the two singles “Under My Wheels” and “Be My Lover” made the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Here, the notorious “Dead Babies” and title track, “Killer” comprise the dark, two-part epic that live resulted in a) Alice chopping apart baby dolls and b) the ritual hanging of Alice himself. Halo of Flies” was, according to Cooper’s liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper, an attempt by the band to prove that they could perform King Crimson-like progressive rock suites, and was supposedly about a SMERSH-like organisation.

The grimly fiendish manner in which Alice spits out this last word into an extended ten second roar is unlike anything I’ve ever heard emit from a human voice. Punk icons Jello Biafra and the Melvins covered the song "Halo of Flies" on their 2005 release Sieg Howdy! Cooper said in the liner notes of A Fistful of Alice and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love It to Death albums, that the song “Desperado” was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released. The Coop's 2nd release of 1971 following 'Love It To Death',WOW what a disc,superb from start to finish.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Desperado" was performed only once prior to the Trash Tour in 1989, but has been frequently played live since.Along with the singles “Under My Wheels” and “Be My Lover,” the record also includes “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,” “Desperado,” and the prog-rock-inspired epic “Halo Of Flies. Celui qui a la chance de ne pas connaître cet album va prendre une bonne grosse taloche dans la tronche : 8 titres meilleurs les uns que les autres.
