Alice Cooper’s Greatest Hits album features a compilation of hit singles by rock singer songwriter Alice Cooper. Originally released in 1974, this album spans five records featuring the original band: Love It to Death, Killer, School’s Out, Billion Dollar Babies, and Muscle of Love. All songs on the album were remixed by Jack Richardson. In 1974 the album reached number 8 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
With the future of the original Alice Cooper band in doubt by mid-1974 (they would soon break up for good with Alice going solo), Warner Bros. decided to issue a best-of compilation entitled Greatest Hits. If you’re a newcomer to Alice, this 12-track compilation is a must-hear — all the selections are exceptional. While many have chosen to focus primarily on Cooper’s theatrics over the years, the original bandmembers were indeed supreme rock songwriters; such anthems as “I’m Eighteen,” “Under My Wheels,” “School’s Out,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy” are unquestionably among the finest hard rock tracks of all time. And the other selections prove to be just as strong — “Is It My Body,” “Desperado,” “Be My Lover,” “Elected,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” and “Muscle of Love” are all outstanding as well. The only criticism of the original release is that the collection overlooked the band’s key album tracks never issued as singles.
