Constrictor 12" Vinyl Album

1986, MCA Records, MCFP 3341

He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask) 7" Vinyl Single

1986, MCA Records, MCA 1090

This UK 7" vinyl single comes in a card sleeve, features etched labels, and includes He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask) on Side A (from the Constrictor album) and a live version of Billion Dollar Babies on Side B (originally from the Billion Dollar Babies album).  The live track is stated as being from 1976, but this is an error as it's actually from the 1982 Special Forces tour.

 

The sleeve features an image of Alice in full make-up holding a Jason Voorhees ice hockey goalie mask.  This is in reference to the fact that the song features in the ending credits of the horror film Friday The 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives, of which Jason Vorhees is the chief Protagonist.  For information, 2 other Alice Cooper songs also feature during the film, Teenage Frankenstein (from the Constrictor album) and Hard Rock Summer, the latter of which and has only ever been made available on The Life And Crimes Of Alice Cooper box set.  On the back is an advert for the same movie together with track listings and credits.

 

Also provided is a nice glossy, fold-out, double-sided poster featuring artwork taken from the Constrictor album.
