About this album

Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies (Studio album first released February 25, 1973)

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
Billion Dollar Babies is an album by American hard rock band Alice Cooper, released in February 1973. It is widely praised as one of the best Alice Cooper albums, and showcased the group at their artistic and commercial peak. Many songs from it remain staples of Alice Cooper’s live act to this day: in particular, “I Love the Dead” is usually associated with Cooper’s mock-execution, while “Elected” is often used as an encore.

‘Billion Dollar Babies’ was also the name of the band founded by Michael Bruce, Mike Marconi, Dennis Dunaway, Bob Dolin, and Neal Smith after they split from Alice Cooper in 1974. This band was embroiled in a legal suit over the usage of the name. They only released one album, 1977’s ‘Battleaxe’, before disbanding.
Billion Dollar Babies peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Pop Albums chart. Four singles were released from the album: “Elected” (which peaked at #26 on the Pop Singles chart); “Hello, Hooray” (#35); “No More Mr. Nice Guy” (US #25); and the song [bg”Billion Dollar Babies” (#57).
The original vinyl album came with a full-sized “Billion Dollar Bill” featuring the band members on the front and a political cartoon on the back.
The title track is a duet between Alice Cooper and Donovan. Years later, the song would be featured in the Xbox 360 version of the video game Guitar Hero II, although it was misidentified in the manual as “Million Dollar Babies”.
“Hello, Hooray,” written by Canadian singer/songwriter Rolf Kempf in 1968, originally appeared on Judy Collins’ 1968 album Who Knows Where the Time Goes.
