The Last Temptation CD Album

1994, Epic, EPC 4765942

This original UK version of The Last Temptation on CD comes in a plastic wallet (complete with hype sticker) and includes the album in a jewel case and Book I of The Last Temptation comic book.  

 

The CD includes a fold-out leaflet that features extracts from the comic book, track lyrics, credits and a few images of Alice. 

The Last Temptation 20th Anniversary CD Album

2014, Cherry Red Records, HNECD034

This 20th anniversary edition of the album by Cherry Red Records doesn't provide listeners with any additional tracks (unlike their previous releases of Trash and Hey Stoopid).  You do, however, get some nice packaging featuring images from the time of release and a good booklet interesting insight into the album by journalist Malcolm Dome.

 

Within the booklet, Alice is attributed with the following quote:

 

"I've noticed that a lot of bands are doing the whole of one classic album during their live performances. And if someone asked me, then I'd love to do The Last Temptation in sequence. What I'd do is open the set with a few hits, then play the entire album, before finishing with a few more hits. It's something I've not thought about doing until now, but you know what, I'd love to do that!"

 

We can but hope!

The Last Temptation Japanese CD Album Box Set

1994, Epic ECSA, 5969-60

This excellent Japanese version features the album, the first comic and an additional Live At Electric Lady CD, all of which are housed inside a nice box.  The live CD (recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York on 13th September 1991) features 7 songs, the most interesting of which is a medley of Only Women Bleed and Wind Up Toy (the latter of which is not available anywhere else as a live track). 

 

It's a shame this wasn't released in other countries as it's a really nice item and worth hunting out for your collection.

The Last Temptation 12" Vinyl Album

2018, Music On Vinyl, MOVLP1846

This further vinyl re-issue of The Last Temptation comes in a simple card sleeve.  Inside is an insert featuring track listings, lyrics and credits on one side and an extract from The Last Temptation comics on the other.  

 

The vinyl is pressed on a nice marble orange colour, so it looks quite similar to that used on the coloured release of Dragontown.

 

It is imited to 2,000 copies (of which mine is number 264) as indicated by the gold hype sticker on the front.   

The Last Temptation Mini Disc Album

1997, Sony, 4765948

In addition to Hey Stoopid, The Last Temptation was the other Alice Cooper studio album to be released on Sony's ill-fated Mini Disc format.  As with Hey Stoopid, this features a slightly simplified version of the CD booklet plus the album artwork on the disc.  

 

No Mini Disc versions of this album came with the comic book as it was released several years after its initial release date.
