Watch & Read This: Our Latest Delivery Of Rare Vinyl & CDs From Our Buyer In Japan

ALICE COOPER Love It To Death (Rare Japanese Warner Bros green label 9-track vinyl LP, released long before the band reached the main public consciousness in the mid-seventies. Even in those early days the band caused controversy by the inclusion of a strategically placed thumb on the cover art of the pasted gatefold picture sleeve, causing it to be swiftly withdrawn & replaced with a version less open to mis-interpretation, with the offending thumb [& indeed the whole of his right arm] removed. Apart from being a very fine album indeed, the first overseen by Bob Ezrin, this copy is in fantastic condition with just some light general wear on the sleeve, with the lyric insert & 'Rock Age' company advertising paper inner. The labels both have a few spindle marks as you would expect, whilst the vinyl remains very clean with only a couple of light cosmetic scuffs. A really nice example, you don't see these often P-8094W
