Title - 'Trash: Expanded Edition' (Cherry Pop)
Artist - Alice Cooper

For those following along with his illustrious career, Trash was the eighteenth studio album released by Alice Cooper in 1989. The album features the hit single 'Poison,' which was actually Cooper's first top ten hit since his single 'You And Me' waaaay back in 1977! I know, right!

Anyway, Cherry Red have reissued the CD with a couple of new bonus tracks and the album is, as you would fully expect (fan of AC or not) still incredible to listen to lyrically. Back around the time they were putting the album together, it was someone's (bright) idea to include musical production guru Desmond Child (Bon Jovi) in the loop. Suddenly Alice's music went from a harder edged storytelling to what can only be described as, well, being inclusive of some seriously sing-along tunes!

Suddenly this musical side-step was noticed around the world and a huge return to chart form was created! Indeed, one could easily add that it became a career high album / turning point for the rock legend, because 'Poison' was backed up be other chart hitting singles such as 'Bed of Nails’, ‘House of Fire’, and ‘Only My Heart Talkin’’.

Funnily enough, and down to Child only, one assumes, the track 'Hell Is Living Without You" was actually a song co-written and backed by Bon Jovi himself! Did you know that? No you didn't, come on now!

This Remastered and Expanded Edition features two (2) aforementioned bonus tracks with a rare radio edit of ‘Only My Heart Talkin’’ alogn with the non-album cut ‘I Got A Line On You.’ The latter actually being a cover of the Randy California song originally recorded by Spirit!

Track listing:

1. POISON
2. SPARK IN THE DARK
3. HOUSE OF FIRE
4. WHY TRUST YOU
5. ONLY MY HEART TALKIN'
6. BED OF NAILS
7. THIS MANIAC'S IN LOVE WITH YOU
8. TRASH
9. HELL IS LIVING WITHOUT YOU
10. I'M YOUR GUN

BONUS TRACKS:

11. ONLY MY HEART TALKIN' (RADIO EDIT)
12. I GOT A LINE ON YOU

With plenty of rare photos and memorabilia, this newly-released CD also features new and insightful liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome, based on recent interviews with Alice Cooper himself.
