Classic ALICE COOPER Albums To Be Released On Vinyl

Back On Black Rock Classics will release four original ALICE COOPER albums on vinyl. The titles will be released in October on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and packaged in deluxe gatefold sleeves. The first 1,000 copies of each title will come on limited-edition colored vinyl.

"Brutal Planet" is the 21st studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 2000. Lyrically, "Brutal Planet" deals with themes of dark "social fiction," including domestic violence ("Take it Like a Woman"), war ("Pick Up The Bones") and school shootings ("Wicked Young Man"). The album has been erroneously reported as being the second in a trilogy (beginning with "The Last Temptation" and ending with "Dragontown"); however, Cooper has stated that this is in fact not the case.

"Dragontown" is the 22nd studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 2001. Like "Brutal Planet", the album displays a heavier style than many of his previous releases.

"The Eyes Of Alice Cooper" is the twenty third album by Alice Cooper, that was released in 2003. Although it has been said that the title is a reference to the 2000 documentary known as "The Eyes of Tammy Faye", in October 2007, Alice said that was not the case. With this album, Cooper returned to his earlier hard rock sound, in the vein of "The Last Temptation", and left the heavy industrial metal sound found in his last two studio albums.

"Dirty Diamonds" is the 24th studio album by Alice Cooper. It was released on July 4, 2005 internationally and on August 2nd for North America. The album peaked on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart at position #17, and on the Billboard 200 album chart at #169 Cooper's highest charting album since "The Last Temptation", 11 years prior.
