About this deal

The collection also gives fans an unreleased live recording of the band’s performance at Mar Y Sol Pop Festival in Puerto Rico on April 2, 1972.

The Coopers first wrote one of the four-odd segments that comprise this headful epic whilst tripping out in the middle of the Arizona desert on mushrooms back in 1966, so no wonder it’s a rollercoaster ride to sweet oblivion if there ever was one; informed as it is by arid wasteland visions colourfully revealed in a disjointed, labyrinthine maze. Desperado”, along with “Under My Wheels” and “Be My Lover” have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper.

Desperado" was performed only once prior to the Trash Tour in 1989, but has been frequently played live since. Tellingly, the last lyric in the song is “you never will understand” and by this point if you’re still trying to comprehend the lyrics you’re trying too hard because the point of Alice Cooper’s best albums are just to suspend disbelief and go along quietly and no one will get hurt (Except Alice, but he’s the professional here. And since Jim had just died months before in July, disinterring The Doors made sense as a poetic tribute. Here, the notorious “Dead Babies” and title track, “Killer” comprise the dark, two-part epic that live resulted in a) Alice chopping apart baby dolls and b) the ritual hanging of Alice himself.Desperado", along with "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover" have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper.

La remasterisation est impec (il faut avouer que le son de l'édition précédente était digne d'un clafoutis aux pruneaux éclatés au fond du cabas de mamie), et le show (issu de la tournée promo, je suppute) proposé sur le bonus disc est démentiel. Cooper said in the liner notes of A Fistful of Alice and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love It to Death albums, that the song “Desperado” was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released. Alongside Welcome to My Nightmare, it is one of only two Alice Cooper albums where every song has been played live, although "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" has never been played since the end of the supporting Killer Tour, while "You Drive Me Nervous" was not played subsequent to the Killer Tour until 1999, and has never been performed since 2006.Released in 1971, KILLER was the fourth studio album recorded by the founding quintet of singer Alice Cooper, lead guitarist Glen Buxton, rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway, and drummer Neal Smith.
