'Alice Cooper' 3" CD Single (1989, Warner Brother 921132-2)

This 3" CD single is believed to originate from Germany, comes in a simple card sleeve and includes the album versions of Hello Hooray, Billion Dollar Babies and Elected (from the Billion Dollar Babies album) plus the album version of School's Out (from the School's Out album).

 

This is an interesting, and rather bizarre release, considering that the CD was released in 1989 (about 16 years after these songs were first recorded).

 

My Valuation: £20

Keepin' Halloween Alive 7" Vinyl (2009, Nightmare Records)

Not as rare as the CD version (see below) but still very cool with it's glow-in-the-dark disc.  This item is interesting in that it shares nothing in common with the artwork of either the CD or MP3 versions.

 

It should be noted that this release was bootlegged (see image below), this release featured the cover of the CD and MP3 versions and was supposedly available in 7 different vinyl colours.

Keepin' Halloween Alive CD (2009, Nightmare Records)

It took me ages to track this one down as I missed out on the original CD release, which was only available to the masses via the official Alice Cooper website for a limited period (including a huge postage cost to the UK).  

 

This is a lovely mint copy which I believe was purchased at the London Roundhouse show in November 2010 (they were sold at the merchandise stalls at just a handful of shows) and hand signed by Alice at a VIP event after his performance.

 

My Valuation: £100

Peter And The Wolf In Hollywood (2015, Giants Are Small 4794888)

This unusual release features Alice narrating a modern, Hollwood-based, adaption of the classic Sergei Prokofiev composition Peter And The Wolf.  The story lasts approximately 50 minutes with Alice featuring throughout as he narrates the story inbetween various classical music excerpts.

 

Alice speaks in a child friendly manner throughout but with the occasional snarl that we're so used to.  Additionally, the producers also manage to include a small sample of School's Out (which is being played on a car stereo).  The booklet features a picture of Alice and a complementary paragraph about him.

 

An iPad App was also produced, this featured the same narration as the CD but with animated graphics to watch as you listen to Alice.  A short video clip of Alice recording his spoken parts can be seen in the end credits (see screen grab below).  See here for more information on the App.

 

My Valuation: £15
