Alice Cooper releases Pretties for You
Pretties for You was the debut album by Alice Cooper.
At this time, the name "Alice Cooper" referred to the band, not its lead singer, though the lead singer was also known as Alice Cooper. The music has a psychedelic flavor to it. The group had yet to develop the more concise hard rock sound that they would become known for. Most of the tracks from the album have a distinct loud and dynamic rock sound. However, very few songs have some sort of hard rock quality. Pretties For You was a critical and commercial failure.
The song "Reflected", Alice Cooper's first single, was later rewritten as "Elected" (which featured on their 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies).
The artwork for this album was hanging on the wall of the living room in Frank Zappa's house. The original painting was done by Ed Beardsley.
