Alice Cooper: 15-CD Boxed Set Features All Of The Studio Albums The Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Released With Warner Bros. Records Between 1969 and 1983
 Available On July 31 From Rhino
 Alice Cooper has rattled the cages of the establishment with his hard-rocking music and theatrical stagecraft for nearly five decades. Since his 1969 debut, Cooper has sold more than 50 million albums, headlined sold-out tours, influenced countless artists, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Because there is no rest for the wicked, Cooper will hit the road this summer for a massive North American tour with Mötley Crüe.
Rhino has the perfect soundtrack to haunt your nightmares with a new 15-CD boxed set that includes all of the albums that Cooper recorded with Warner Bros. Records- THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1969-1983 will be available on July 31. The set will also be available digitally.
The set is presented in a clamshell box and includes 15 albums, each one featuring the original artwork: Pretties For You (1969), Easy Action (1970), Love It To Death (1971), Killer (1971), School’s Out (1972), Billion Dollar Babies (1973), Muscle Of Love (1973), Welcome To My Nightmare (1975), Alice Cooper Goes To Hell (1976), Lace And Whiskey (1977), From The Inside (1978), Flush The Fashion (1980), Special Forces (1981), Zipper Catches Skin (1982), and DaDa (1983).
Alice Cooper along with guitarists Glen Buxton and Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway and drummer Neal Smith recorded seven albums together, including four consecutive platinum records that culminated with the #1 album Billion Dollar Babies in 1973. This line-up generated indelible hard rock classics like “I’m Eighteen,” “School’s Out,” “Elected,” “Hello Hooray,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
After releasing the platinum-certified Alice Cooper’s Greatest Hits in 1974, Cooper launched a successful solo career in 1975 with Welcome To My Nightmare. The concept album about a child’s nightmares peaked at #5 on the charts, was certified platinum, and featured the hit ballad “Only Women Bleed.”
Over the next eight years, Cooper recorded seven more solo albums for Warner Bros. Among the many highlights from that period are the ballad “I Never Cry,” the Top Ten smash “You And Me” from Lace And Whiskey, “How You Gonna See Me Now” off of From The Inside, and “Clones (We’re All)” from Flush the Fashion.
