Limited edition 180-gram LP

Collectable deluxe gatefold cover, originally designed by Alice Cooper

It was a banner year in 1971 for rising superstar Alice Cooper and his band with their latest hit album Killer. As a fourth album in his longstanding career with Warner Bros. Records, Killer was an amazing masterwork which many of his fans point to as one of their favorite Alice Cooper albums of choice. It's easy to hear why!

Killer was Cooper's first Top 20 album to rock the charts. It also was one of the first albums in his arsenal to uniquely blend his theatrical stage show persona with prog-rock and heavy metal workouts which have since become classic rock anthems.

Teaming up again with his long time producer Bob Ezrin, Alice Cooper and his legendary band (Michael Bruce: guitar/keys, Glen Buxton: lead guitar, Neal Smith: drums and Dennis Dunaway: bass) assembled some of their finest material ever for this platinum plus effort.

Thanks to smash singles such as "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover," Killer quickly developed into an exciting listening experience for the fans and radio stations around the globe. Upon first remembrances of this masterpiece, a treasure trove of classic hard rock sounds truly awaits you. Not only do you get classics such as "Halo Of Flies" and "You Drive Me Nervous," even more hits abound including his Jim Morrison tribute "Desperado" and of course metal anthem "Dead Babies" and the brilliant title track and album closer "Killer." Track for track, guitar riff to guitar riff, Killer was so chock full of hits, it wasn't uncommon for hipper radio programmers to play an entire album side on their air shifts back in the classic rock era.

Friday Music is proud to offer this classic 1971 smash album Killer. Impeccably mastered from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso (Alice Cooper/David Bowie/Deep Purple) at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, this limited edition 180-gram LP is also presented in a collectable deluxe gatefold cover, originally designed by Alice Cooper himself, with the original 1972 calendar artwork inside, and of course Kachina, his boa constrictor on the famous front cover.
