The Eyes Of Alice Cooper Era

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper Promotional CD Album

This promotional CD features a simple paper sleeve and the red Alice eyes. The rear of the sleeve has the track listings and image of Alice with arms folded.  The CD is a blue CD-R type variety.

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper CD Album (Red Eyes Version)

2003, Eagle Records, ER 20028-2

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper was initially available in 4 different CD variants. They were all identical with the exception of Alice's eyes being a different colour on the front of the case and on the CD inside.

 

This USA version features Red Eyes and became the primary colour used for all subsequent pressings.  It was also the only colour choice for the vinyl and cassette versions of this album (see below).

 

The CD comes in a simple jewel case and features a nice 16-page booklet containing lots of images of Alice, track listings and credits.  The photos on the back of the booklet and on the back of the case are notable as they show Alice in a very rare posing position with his touring band.

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper CD Album (Blue Eyes Version)

2003, Spitfire Active, SPITCD090B

This European version is exactly the same as the 'Red Eyes' version (above) only that it features blue eyes on the front cover and CD plus 'Spitfire Active' branding on the back.

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper CD Album (Purple Eyes Version)

2003, Spitfire Active, SPITCD090P

This European version is exactly the same as the 'Red Eyes' version (above) only that it features purple eyes on the front cover and CD plus 'Spitfire Active' branding on the back.

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper CD Album (Green Eyes Version)

2003, Eagle Records, ER 20028-2

This USA version is exactly the same as the 'Red Eyes' version (above) only that it features green eyes on the front cover.  Oddly though, the eyes on the CD are red, not green, and my understanding is that the USA versions all had Red Eye discs regardless of the colour on the cover (they also feature the same product code, ER 20028-2, whereas the European ones are slightly different for each variant to indicate the colour of the eyes on the CD).

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper CD Album (Purple Eyes Version)

2003, Eagle Records, ER 20028-2

To confirm the above point about CD eye colours, this is the USA version of the 'Purple Eyes' version and also has a disc with red eyes.  America, you got shafted!

The Eyes Of Alice Cooper CD Album (Green Eyes Version)

2003, Spitfire Active, SPITCD090G

Having discovered that my USA 'Green Eyes' copy (above) had a CD with red eyes on it, I obviously had to hunt out a European copy to complete my set of matching covers and CDs!
