ALICE COOPER; "The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper" (Warner Archives/Rhino) ***
Rock fans owe a lot to Cooper. Everyone from Rob Zombie, the New York Dolls and Ozzy Osbourne has been inspired by his theatrics. Yes, even Marilyn Manson should give credit where it's due. To celebrate Cooper's long, active, twisted career, Rhino has raided the Warner Bros. vaults: "School's Out," "Dead Babies," "I'm Eighteen," "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "You and Me," "Lost In America" and more are found on this four-CD set.
