The Strange Case of Alice Cooper

Biography

Every great production deserves a sequel – even if comes 35-plus years after the original.

In 1975, Alice Cooper joined forces with longtime collaborator and producer Bob Ezrin to record his first solo album Welcome to My Nightmare, a theatrical concept album about the nightmares of a young boy named Steven. Now, he’s followed Steven into adulthood and presents Welcome 2 My ... Read more in Amazon's Alice Cooper Store

Editorial Reviews

Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare became a dream come true for the legendary shock rocker and his fans; his first solo album, it soared to #5 in 1975 and became a '70s rock classic. His hits Only Women Bleed; Department of Youth , and Welcome to My Nightmare join the rest of the original LP. Rock 'n' roll!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a ten star CD! April 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The sound of this remaster is gorgeous! I usually ho-hum at remasters, and can't tell much difference, but this is an exception. The sounds are sharper, crisper. Little sounds and lost instrumentation have been brought up from the background. and some of the weird noises have been given more prominence. I listened to both CD versions back to back, and I could hear major differences. The original CD seems to have been designed to suit more classic rock tastes, but this one seems to have been mastered to suit the tastes of Alice fans.
This reissue was produced by Brian Nelson and David McLees. Sound was produced by Bill Inglot. It was remastered by Dan Hersch at Digiprep-not by Bob Ezrin as the editorial review incorrectly states (check the liner notes before reviewing!)
It comes with a ten page booklet with some nice archive photos (that made me wish there were more photos and that they were larger!) from the "Welcome To My Nightmare" tour and a text piece by Jeffery Morgan-which basically praises Alice to death and doesn't tell fans anything they didn't already know-but it's still nice to read.
The three alternate songs were taken from Alice's ABC TV Special, "The Nightmare," co-starring Vincent Price, which was first broadcast 4/25/75. This is not the "Welcome To My Nightmare" concert video-this is a series of vignettes acted out by Cooper and Price that is nearly impossible to find by conventional means. Maybe this CD will generate interest and they will re-release it. In any case, they do not detract from the album at all...in fact, they add a little closure to it.
"Devil's Food" has alternate lyrics-probably mandated by television executives, but in my opinion the lyrics are even more potentially offensive! Leave it to Alice to pull that off.

Unquestionably one of the albums nearest-and-dearest to my heart, it can instantly transport me through time and I'm a teenager again....which isn't to say I want to live in the past (heck, I LIKE being middle-aged!) but it's a declaration of the sheer power of this album. Alice's greatest album, bar none....and that's saying alot.

This is one of those few-and-far-between albums that you have to commit yourself to when you fire up the stereo to listen to it: it just feels WRONG to interrupt it for any reason. (The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "Imperial Bedroom" by Elvis Costello and "Ritual De Lo Habitual" by Jane's Addiction are others that fall into this category.) Every song is of the highest quality; there are no dips in quality in the entirety of this exquisitely well-written and performed drama. The Bob Ezrin production is superb, bringing Alice's vision to vivid, haunting life. The band is in total synch and at the top of their game. Alice growls, pleads, shrieks, mocks, whispers and raves with equal, mesmerizing effect, like a character actor running wild with the juiciest role of his career.

If someone told me I could only have 60 minutes of recorded music, the closing sequence of "Years Ago" > "Steven" > "The Awakening" > "Escape" just might make the cut. Alice Cooper at the peak of his powers, this amazing sequence can still produce goosebumps on my arms. The nightmare-carnival of "Years Ago", the glorious, powerhouse orchestration of "Steven", the creepy, childlike tinkling piano which introduces "The Awakening".....WOW, what a show! When the opening chords of "Escape" come bounding out of my speakers, I'm instantly on my feet singing along in delirious rapture. (This album has the very same effect on my older sister Cindy. Put it on and you won't find two happier people anywhere!)

"Welcome To My Nightmare" is indeed the stuff of legend and hopefully will be listened to for many generations to come!

1.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the MP3 rip off! April 21, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Do NOT I repeat do NOT buy the MP3 version of Welcome To My Nightmare here... For whatever ridiculous reason they give you the single version of the title track which is over 5 minutes long but here is a mere 3 minutes but if that wasn't enough Only Women Bleed which is another popular hit on this album is also edited this song is in fact over 5 minutes also & here on the MP3 version is only 3:36 A COMPLETE & TOTAL RIPOFF!!!! Fans see for yourself compare the times if you don't believe me...... Tom

5.0 out of 5 stars You're just another spirit on parole! ;) August 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
There is no doubt in my mind that "Welcome to my Nightmare" is the greatest musical triumph ever to be made by the Godfather of Shock Rock. This monster solo debut marks a critical period when Alice Cooper departs from his recently disbanded garage band and solely concocts a devious, innovative formula of grand theatrical showmanship. "Welcome to my Nightmare" is, in fact, a perfectly orchestrated spook soundtrack which blends pulsating rock rhythms with elements of vaudeville and Broadway musical tunes. As the velvet curtain rises to expose the stage, Cooper dons the top hat of a devilish ringmaster; as indicated by the album's opening title track, he cordially invites curious spectators into his cadaverous crypt cabaret. Of course, that's just the beginning. With shock and surprises lurking behind every corner, Cooper's fiendishly clever lyrics incorporate unspeakable violence and gore with elaborate stage spectacle. The special guest appearance of horror film master Vincent Price on "Devil's Food" is simply priceless; it's clear he enjoys being a Hollywood ham! "Black Widow" is a disturbing track about a bloodthirsty arachnid who is worshipped by her enslaved servants as she voraciously devours their flesh; this track may as well concern any voluptuous woman who is capable of luring men to their doom. The simple yet hilarious "Some Folks" is heavily inspired by Fred Astaire; it's a catchy tap dance number discussing the wholesome subject of cannibalism! Even more frightening is "Only Women Bleed," a seemingly tender ballad about domestic violence; during the sweeping instrumental segments, one can almost vision the bruised and terrified wife being punched and kicked repeatedly by her drunken spouse.
