What can one say about "Killer" other than to say it is a rock and roll masterpiece. Truly. All eight tracks are just flat out excellent. The album achieves tremendous lyrical content, flawless drumming by Neal Smith and great vocals by Alice. For the uninitiated, start here.
Alice Cooper... Vocals and Harmonica
Neal Smith ... Drums and Vocals
Dennis Dunaway ... Bass and Vocals
Glen Buxton ... Lead Guitar
Michael Bruce ... Rhythm Guitar, Vocals, Piano and Organ
Bob Ezrin ... Keyboards, Mini-Moog
Rick Derringer ... Guitar on 'Under My Wheels' and 'Yeah Yeah Yeah'
Reggie Vincent ... Backing Vocals
1. An early working title for the track "Desperado" was "Desert Nights".
2. The click sound at the end of 'Be My Lover' is Neal Smith dropping his drumsticks.
3. 'Halo of Flies' was a mixture of three different songs that Alice would eventually "arrange".
4. The album was released in November of 1971 and would peak at #21 on the Billboard Top 200. The album would be certified a Platinum seller.
5. The singles "Be My Lover" peaked at #49 and "Under My Wheels" peaked at #59.
The words "Killer" were written by the right-handed Dennis Dunaway left-handed while Neal Smith's snake, Kachina, is photographed on the simplistic but effective album cover. Booklet features song credits, musician credits and a "NOTES" page.
APPROX. RUNNING TIME:
35 min. and 15 sec.
Another definitve Alice Cooper album under the production of the great Bob Ezrin. ***** out of 5. A MUST HAVE!!!
It's all over before you're ready and you'll likely get right up and put it right back on to hear again. Every song is a gem and still sound fresh and innovative while sounding almost spontaneous and very edgy.

I originally bought this album when it was first released in 1971. The music holds up after all these years and this CD sounds excellent. Every song is "killer", no filler. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Thomas Walsh
