About this album

Welcome to My Nightmare is a concept album by Alice Cooper, released in 1975. This was Alice Cooper’s first solo album (all previous Alice Cooper releases were band efforts). The cover artwork was created by Drew Struzan for Pacific Eye and Ear. Rolling Stone would later rank it as one of the “Top 100 Album Covers Of All Time”.

Welcome to My Nightmare is a concept album. The songs, heard in sequence, form a journey through the nightmares of a child named Steven.

Welcome to My Nightmare inspired the Alice Cooper: The Nightmare TV special and a worldwide concert tour in 1975, and the Welcome To My Nightmare concert film in 1976.

The remastered CD version adds three alternate version bonus tracks.

The song “The Black Widow” was covered by Bruce Dickinson for the Alice Cooper tribute album Humanary Stew.
