    Great album with some amazing songs. Mine has quite a bit of surface noise but it’s in ok condition. Even with that it’s still an awesome album. What a unique cover as well.

      Wow, what a superb early Alice Cooper album, '73 pressing. Side A has some terrific songs, but side B is even better. Great consistency in writing and you can hear input by Dick Wagner and others. Mellow rock, theatrical sound.

      Recording is super clean with great natural sounding instruments. Drums are pretty mellow throughout, low energy, but still sounds very natural.

      Great pressing. Includes $1B bill poster, no trading cards, though.

      Recommended.

        One of my all time favorite Alice Cooper albums. I found this original pressing with the gate fold and giant billion dollar bill at a antique store for $10. Great condition too

          According to the documentary "Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon " - The baby used in the main gatefold photoshoot, died a crib death, a few months later after the photo was produced.

            My version seems to be a variant of this. Olive labels (exactly the same as shown on this version) with a variant of the matrix that says SIDE I: BS-2685 40396-4E SIDE II: BS-2685 40397-4E

              Can't find my version... Olive labels, with etchings similar to first press.
              Side I: BS-2685 T 40396-1F
              Side II: BS-2685 T 40397-1F
              Help would be appreciated.
