1987, A Man Called Alice, cassette

"A Man Called Alice" is a collection of 2 previous Alice Cooper albums.
What's interesting is they cover "Muscle Of Love" 1973 which is the last recording w/ the original band. Then other album is Alice Cooper's 3rd solo release "Lace And Whiskey" 1977.

Cassette cover w/ flap open shows a picture of Alice from 1979
Mad House Rock Tour that is "From The Inside" album.
No relation w/ either of the albums on this cassette.

1977, CREEM, Battle Axe Review

Review in July 1977 CREEM issue on Billion Dollar Babies debut "Battle Axe" release.
I mentioned this before & I'll say it again "Battle Axe" is my favorite post-Alice Cooper album.
Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith form Billion Dollar Babies w/ Bob Dolin who
played back up musician during Alice Cooper's Billion Dollar Babies Tour.
New guy Mike Marconi on guitar and vocals rounds out this exceptional band.

1975, misc. music magazine photo

Here's another miscellaneous music magazine b&w image.
I don't know which one but it must be from Circus, Creem or Rock Scene publication.
Using my detective reasoning by looking on the back of this cut out page.
It shows an ad for Jonathan Kelly's new album "Two days in winter" which came out in 1975
from my internet search.

1973(?) Circus Rave

I believe these torn out pages are from 1973 since they mention the first "Billion Dollar Babies" tour on page 15 and "Muscle of Love" LP on page 16.

Page 15 includes a photo of Alice and Grouch Marx 
as the article talks about the first "Billion Dollar Babies" Tour.

On page 16 Circus Raves poll top 20 LP's. 
Number 1 "Muscle of Love" album.
Muscle Of Love came out in the Fall of '73.
Alice also comes in at #2 "Billion Dollar Babies" album
and #11 "School's Out" album.

Misc. CREEM article

Another interesting CREEM article I don't know too much about. But safe to say this was during Alice's solo career somewhere along the late 70's.

1976 (?) misc. Boston newspaper article

I do remember cutting this article out because but don't remember which Boston newspaper.
I remember the article saying Alice is semiretired because of anemia and someone else would play Alice in his idea of "Alice Cooper Goes To Hell" Broadway show that he will direct.
It's a shame that never happened. It would of been an interesting show.

Note the photo is from 1974The Snoop Sisters episode.
Also used for 2010, "Keepin' Halloween Alive" single sleeve cover.

2002, Michael Bruce live in Iceland

Ingo Geirdal of the Iceland band Dimma was kind enough to show Alice Cooper fans
a concert he recorded of his band backing up Michael Bruce. Ingo had this video for
10 years and decided to present it to the fans. Ingo recorded this show w/ 3 cameras
and the sound is great. It's cool to hear Michael singing a number of Alice songs he
wrote & co-wrote. Demo lyrics to "Halo Of Flies".  Also some solo career songs.
My favorite "I Miss You" from Billion Dollar Babies "Battle Axe" album.

Following is a letter Ingo wrote on YouTube:

When Michael Bruce came to Iceland the second time, we decided to record and video the concert for us to have in our own archives. This was done with very limited budget and never finished, we put the 3 cameras roughly in sync and took it to a point so we could enjoy watching it our selfs. Now 10 years later we thought, what the heck why not put it on You Tube for others to enjoy.
So we hope you'll enjoy watching this.

Michael Bruce - Guitar and Vocals
Ingo Geirdal - Guitar and Backing Vocals
Silli Geirdal - Bass
Pétur Örn Guðmundsson - Keyboards and Vocals
Bjarki Magnússon - Drums

1976, Alice Cooper Goes To Hell Songbook (1 of 3)

Another find at a Record Collectible Show a long time ago.

Alice Cooper Goes To Hell Songbook doesn't have that many photos as his other songbooks.
The reason is Alice was ill during this time and most of the photos were taken during
Welcome To My Nightmare tours and promo shots. The only original photo taken
during Goes To Hell is the back cover of the album which Alice is walking down the staircase.

8.75x12 inches
The cover photo is taken from Billion Dollar Babies record sleeve on your right.
