Alice's Million Dollar Album

Between School's Out (6/72) and Muscle Of Love (11/73), this album was the pinnacle of Alice Cooper (the band). Alice went solo after the Muscle album. The album title is a reference to how this group became arena-selling monsters.

Steve Hunter was asked to do the solos on several tracks, as Glenn was incapacitated due to alcohol-related issues. A quadraphonic album with different mixes was also issued. Hello Hooray was first recorded by Judy Collins.
