Product Notes

Three CDs. Following Muscle Of Love in 1974, the original Alice Cooper band took a break to consider solo projects outside of the band. The plan had been for the original Alice Cooper band to regroup and record in 1977, but by this time the name of the band had become very much synonymous with it's lead singer - Vincent Furnier - who now had very much morphed into Alice as far as the public were concerned. The "solo" Alice record Welcome to My Nightmare had firmly separated Alice Cooper the singer from Alice Cooper the band. Rather than abandon the intended album, drummer Neal Smith, guitarist Michael Bruce and bassist Dennis Dunaway joined forces with lead guitarist Mike Marconi and Alice Cooper keyboard player Bob Dolin, and signing to Polydor records, fashioned the abandoned Alice Cooper band album into Battle Axe, calling themselves Billion Dollar Babies, a very deliberate nod to their previous incarnation. The Battle Axe LP was a creditable collection of a dozen original, commercial rock songs that would easily have served as a new Alice LP. The album unfortunately struggled to find an audience upon release, and the Billion Dollar Babies project was short lived. The original album has now been augmented with a whole disc of demos made for the album, including non-album tracks 'I Don't Know Babe', 'Wallow Through This Madness', 'Only One Will Walk Away' and 'High Heels Hollywood'. The Billion Dollar Babies only played four live shows before disbanding, but thankfully someone was around to record the very first of these shows, in Flint, Michigan on 6th July 1977.
