2010, Keepin' Halloween Alive, 45rpm

In 2010 Alice put out a Limited Edition 45 of "Keepin' Halloween Alive
and B side is "I Love The Dead" live.

Front cover
Love the artwork.
45rpm is kept in a plastic sleeve.
The artwork flaps open and is only attached at the bottom.
This image of Alice was taken in 1974 during his appearance 
on The Snoop Sisters TV series.

Other side has an image from one of "Along Came A Spider" photos
This is similar to the mugshot promo shot

Side 1: "Keepin' Halloween Alive"

Side 2: "I Love The Dead" Live
Taken from "Theatre Of Death" DVD/CD
This is a short version w/ only the chorus.
Alice's hasn't sang the lyrics to this song in a long time. 
It's used as they take him to his execution while the band just
sings the chorus.

They also released an iTunes version which was only
"Keepin' Halloween Alive" and the 2nd track was a karaoke version
or as they called it Cooperoke Mix of "Keepin' Halloween Alive"
The artwork is different I'll post it if I find it but the youtube video below 
shows you the iTunes cover art.

Alice Cooper Boxer Shorts

I got these around the same time I bought the candle so it's around 1997 more or less.
Unfortunately the sizes are smaller than they say. I picked a medium but it looked like a small.
I wouldn't even dare try them on. Shame cause I wanted to wear them!

Both sides of label

Close up of pattern. Just like the label above image.
Only it reads Alice above and Cooper below image.
Image from Welcome To My Nightmare years.

1997 (?) Candle

I'm not sure the exact date but in '97 I do remember where I was working at the time I purchased
this Alice Cooper candle. So it's around that time plus I seen a Santana candle on ebay listed in 1997.

Alice's image appears 3 times around the candle.
Has the Nightmare Inc trademark at bottom of image.

Bottom of candle shows label from LimitDead Edition
I guess a Grateful Dead enterprise that also put out a number of other artist.
I even bought the Alice Cooper Boxers around this time.

2000, Alice Cooper Lunch Box

Going to elementary school in the late 60's I carried my brother's hand-me-down lunch boxes.
One was "Bozo The Clown" that was shaped like those outdoor mailboxes you see on the post.
It even had a thermos. The other was "Wild Wild West" the TV series. That one was a square box. Unfortunately I don't have them anymore but I know the "Bozo The Clown" ended up rusted being stored in my cellar. The other I have no idea what happened to it.

A former co-worker had an Elvis lunch box she left in the office that held her aspirins & other meds.
I thought that was hilarious.

Alice Cooper Lunch Box was by Nightmare, Inc., and cost $19.99. 
The bottom of the lunch box was black w/ no image. Just a sticker by 
National Entertainment Collectibles Assoc
Clark, New Jersey 07066-5551
Made In China

This Lunch Box pic I found on ebay. Notice the side has "Alice Cooper" up top of image.
Mine doesn't have it. Just the distorted "Alice Cooper" going down the side.

1971, Killer photo

I received this black & white 10x8 photo from the Killer sessions. 
I seen a number on line that where quite cool looking I wish I had more. 
I thought this was Alice Cooper just before they hit their prime.
Killer is an excellent album and Halo Of Flies just proves their musicianship. 

My photo is better than this scan.

2001, Alice Cooper N' The Box

I thought this was a cool item. Although it's tough getting Alice in the box & closing the lid.
Hey! I tried just once. When you press the button the first few lines from "Welcome To My Nightmare" plays and Alice's voice is pretty good quality coming out of the box.

This is one side of the box. Notice Alice is holding his head. 
This is different than the final product of Alice holding a skull. 
Maybe this was a prototype before they decided to change it to a skull.
Just my opinion not sure why it changed.

1999, Racing Champions

As it reads on the back of the package.
"Presenting the newest collection of Racing Champions Signatures Superstars Hot Rockin' Steel!"

These 3 limited edition Alice Cooper Die Cast cars inspired by albums of Alice Cooper.
The ones I purchased are the small vehicles size of Matchbox cars.
They also had larger versions of these vehicles that I believe were about a foot long.
I almost bought one but just stuck w/ the smaller versions.

I don't have a digital camera so I used my camera that's on my computer so excuse the quality.
Plus one or two images I found online.
