ROCK MUSIC VINYL FLASHBACK: ALICE COOPER – “YOU AND ME” 45 RPM FROM 1977


ALICE COOPER –  While on one of my “usual” Rock ‘N’ Roll and Heavy Metal hunts, I found and purchased this vintage Alice Cooper 45 rpm of You And Me, released on Warner Bros. Records back in 1977. The above photo is the 45 rpm sleeve, while the photos below is the 45 rpm, (these are photos of the actual 45 rpm that I bought). The B Side of this 45 rpm is the song – It’s Hot Tonight. Both of these songs are from the Alice Cooper album – Lace And Whiskey, released back in 1977 on Warner Bros. Records. The asking price, for this piece of Alice Cooper vinyl history, set me back a whopping $1 in U.S. funds. Whoa.

This 45 rpm plays very well on my turntable, while the condition of the record sleeve is in very fine condition as well. An ultra worthy addition to my Alice Cooper collection for certain. This is Rock history, Alice Cooper history.

Both songs on this 45 rpm are classics, with You And Me being a mellow and acoustic ballad, while It’s Hot Tonight being the Hard Rock album opener to Lace And Whisky. The photo of Alice Cooper on the record sleeve above, is not the “usual” image of this Rock Horror living legend. I feel that is what makes this record sleeve so classic, that a more laid back Alice Cooper is shown. The song You And Me coupled with this photo of Alice Cooper, only proves there has always been more to this Rock Music icon than just full blown Hard Rock and Horror… in my Metal opinion.

* The producer for this Alice Cooper 45 rpm and the Lace And Whiskey album was the legendary Bob Ezrin.

* Alice Cooper performed You And Me on a 1978 episode of The Muppet Show.

LONG LIVE ALICE COOPER!

  1. Great find for the price. Terrible song though, but still worth the money just for what it is.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      “You And Me” is such a detour song from the Alice Cooper that ROCKS so Hard & Heavy. It does rain with late ’70’s sound and feel too.

  2. I am huge Alice fan but I never cared for this song and always felt ‘Lace and Whiskey’ was his worst album, years later, while I still feel it is still Alice’s weakest album in his discography, I feel there are some good songs on the disc and even ‘You and Me” while far from my fav Cooper ballad it is not as horrid as I once felt.

    Great find for a dollar especially with the cover still intact.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      You know, I probably would have bought the record sleeve for $1 even if it had no 45 in it! The pic of Alice Cooper, just strays away from the “norm” of what I’m used to visualizing him as.

      I will probably get a frown from Metal Mark for saying this… yup, “You And Me” is not that bad of a “mellow” tune. Only it is not the Alice Cooper that gets me psyched out of my Metal mind either! 🙂

  3. That’s such a “dapper” photo of Alice!

    I will have to dig out some of my vinyl. I never listened to him a lot growing up but somehow I did ended up landing 2-3 LP’s from the 70’s from one of my aunt’s collections.

    *I guess I was too busy listening to Nazareth, B.T.O., Steve Miller Band and KISS.

    Seems like you’ve been on a roll lately finding good memorabilia.

    Rock on!

      Yup Kinger… I have been on a Metal roll lately with some ultra cool Rockin’ finds. I’m not bragging though… it’s not like I have been finding “Live Like a F’n Suicide”! However, I can “smell” it in my neck of the woods… it’s out there… and I’ll land it! 🙂

      Look for some more “finds” I have made lately in future posts! Plus… M3 stuff too!!
