Aerosmith Aerosmith

In the 80's and early 90's I had a huge collection of Aerosmith bootlegs on tape and especially on vinyl. Unfortunately, due to my involvement with a certain group I sold all my original Aerosmith paraphanalia. (For more on that story see My Metal History). In any case, I am now on a quest to collect as many Aerosmith live CDs as I can. Unless otherwise noted, the cds listed below are originals (silver discs), not cdr copies. That being said, many of these shows have never been mass produced, thus no "silver" disc exists. I've attempted to list a record label if there was one but even if a name is on a disc, this does not guarantee that the disc was ever mass produced. Also, see my wants and trades list at the bottom of this page.

Aerosmith-Paul's Mall 4/22/73 (cdr bootleg)

1. "One Way Street" (7:19)
2. "Somebody" (4:43)
3. "Write Me A Letter" (4:20)
4. "I Ain't Got You" (4:15)
5. "Mother Popcorn" (8:12)
6. "Movin' Out" (5:30)
7. "Walkin' the Dog" (3:09)
8. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (5:57)
9. "Mama Kin" (4:26)

Excellent early show with superb sound taken from a WBCN broadcast recorded live from Paul's Mall in Boston. MA. "I Ain't Got You" and "Mother Popcorn" from this show were used for the official "Live Bootleg". Once again, not sure if this one was ever mass produced or if this is only a CDR that is being traded by fans. I use to own this one on vinyl but for the life of me cannot remember the name of that vinyl boot. Hmmm, perhaps one day it will come back to me.

Michigan Palace 1974 Aerosmith-Michigan Palace, Detroit, MI 4/14/74 (cdr bootleg)

1. "Write Me" (3:52)
2. "Mama Kin" (4:44)
3. "Lord of the Thighs" (5:15)
4. "Woman of the World" (9:15)
5. "Dream On" (5:12)
6. "Pandora¹s Box" (6:12)
7. "Same Old Song and Dance" (5:31)
8. "One Way Street" (9:56)
9. "Somebody" (3:46)
10. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (6:59)
11. "Walkin' the Dog" (4:01)

This is an excellent live soundboard recording. Even the cover artwork is spectacular. I'm not sure if this one was ever mass produced, as my copy is a CDR copy. Purchased it from an eBay seller.

Live Bootleg Vol. 2 Aerosmith-Live Bootleg Vol. 2 (Ironic)
My Fathers Place, Long Island, NY 7/2/74 (Tracks 1-8)

1. "Write Me A Letter" (5:09)
2. "S.O.S. (Too Bad)" (3:40)
3. "Lord of the Thighs" (5:47)
4. "Dream On" (4:47)
5. "Same Old Song and Dance" (4:17)
6. "Woman of the World" (8:23)
7. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (9:09)
8. "Walking the Dog" (3:53)
Track 9 recorded live at Arlington Ballroom, Chicago 3/23/78
9. "Walk This Way" (3:57)
Track 10 Recorded live in California 1974
10. "Walk This Way" (4:22)

Excellent FM mono on this "Get Your Wings" tour concert. This was originally released on vinyl as "My Fathers Place" (Mongoose CD003), but the CD's sound quality is superior to the vinyl "My Fathers Place," which I use to also own. Great show! The sound is a raw not unlike the official "Live Bootleg" tracks from this same time period. Anyhow, Aerosmith just jammed in the 70's. "S.O.S." has a cool, long intro. This particular version features two bonus tracks, both recorded in stereo. This is a silver disc, not a cdr copy.

Cleveland '75 Aerosmith-Cleveland, OH 8/232/75 (CDR bootleg)

1. "Walking the Dog" (3:15)
2. "S.O.S. (Too Bad)" (3:25)
3. "Somebody" (3:22)
4. "Big Ten Inch Record" (3:08)
5. "Sweet Emotion" (5:15)
6. "Dream On" (4:41)
7. "Write Me" (4:31)
8. "Walk This Way" (4:15)
9. "Same Old Song & Dance" (5:21)
10. "Mama Kin" (2:43)
11. "Train Kept A Rollin¹" (14:00)
12. "Toys in the Attic" (5:42)

Got this disc in a trade with another Aerosmith bootleg collector. Cleveland '75 is an audience recording, but the sound is not untollerable. Probably graded a B- to a C+. The CDR came without a cover so I made the generic cover pictured above. "Train Kept A Rollin'" has a long drum solo in the middle, but still seems to have a portion cut out of it. Also included in that song is a portion of the theme to Batman.

Central PArk '75 Aerosmith-Central Park, New York, NY 1975
Shaeffer Music Festival, Central Park NY, 8/29/75.

1. "S.O.S (Too Bad)" (3:46)
2. "Somebody" (3:51)
3. "Dream On" (4:43)
4. "Write Me" (5:06)
5. "Walk This Way" (4:03)
6. "Sweet Emotion" (5:17)
7. "No More No More" (4:30)
8. "Same Old Song and Dance" (4:26)
9. "Toys in the Attic" (4:06)
10. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (8:57)

Another excellent high quality live recording. This one was a radio broadcast from the King Biscuit Flower Hour and sports and very high quality mix. The song selection is awesome, since it is all from the first three albums. Cool purple wings on the high quality printed cover, both inside and out. This one has been released under several different names with several different titles including "Sweet Emotion" (Viva CCD 7520) and "KBFH (King Biscuit Flower Hour)." I wonder if the King Buscuit will ever officially release this like they have some of their other broadcasts.

Houston, TX 1977 Aerosmith-Sumit Theater, Houston, TX 7/25/77 (cdr bootleg)

1. "Back in the Saddle" (3:50)
2. "Mama Kin" (3:38)
3. "S.O.S. (Too Bad)" (2:46)
4. "Big Ten Inch Record" (3:23)
5. 'Lord of the Thighs" (8:07)
6. "Dream On" (4:32)
7. "Lick and a Promise" (3:29)
8. "Adam's Apple" (4:52)
9. "Sweet Emotion" (5:39)
10. "Sick as a Dog" (5:22)
11. "Draw the Line" (4:39)
12. "Walk this Way" (4:16)
13. "Rattlesnake Shake" (7:52)
14. "Toys in the Attic" (5:37)
15. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (3:43)
16. "Helter Skelter" (3:35)

Great setlist, decent sound, but a sloppy performance. In '77 Aerosmith were so consumed with drugs, alcohol, sex and themselves I'm actually surprised it sounds as good as it does, but compared to their earlier shows and even everything for the 80's on, this is the sloppiest I have ever heard them. Still, it's live Aerosmith and I can't ever get enough of it. "Helter Skelter" is a Beatles cover. This one is a cdr.

10. "Eat the Rich" (3:56)

Excellent 6 disc box set that contains 7 shows from 1978 to 1994, in chronological order. Definitely one of the nicer bootlegs I have ever seen. This is also the most expensive cds I have ever purchased.

Disc 1: The sound quality on this vintage show is excellent (A+), almost flawless recording. This particular show has also been released as "Last Gas in Chicago" only with an inferior sound quality to this disc. Cool version and rare version of "Get It Up." I think this may have been a WBCN broadcast.

Disc 2: Good to decent sound quality (B) from a stereo WBCN broadcast. "Kings And Queens" on this disc is the same version that appears on "Pandora's Box" (disc 3). Great to hear classics like "Get the Lead Out" and "Seasons of Wither" which have never made it onto any official live Aerosmith cd. There is a big flaw in this disc as songs 4 through 9 have an annoying tape squeel. Too bad, because this is an excellent show.

Disc 3: Very good stereo broadcast from Aerosmith's hometown, Boston. This concert was their 10th Anniversary show, and featured Jimmy Crespo on guitar along with Brad Whitford. I searched FOREVER to replace this show that I use to own on tape. This show alone is worth the price of this excellent boot. When this set arrived in my mailbox his was the first disc I shoved into my cd player. I always thought that Jimmy Crespo was a great guitar player, and filled Joe Perry's shoes perfectly. On this show he proves me right. Includes a rare live version of "Think About It" which is one of my favorite songs from the underrated "Night in the Ruts."

Disc 4: Another very good stereo WBCN broadcast for this famous 1994 Valentine's Day show, one of the last with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay on guitar. According to most Aerosmith biographies, this was the show that Joe Perry and Brad Whitford attended backstage making one of the first steps towards their reunion. "Mama Kin," "Three Mile Smile," "Reefer Head Woman," "Lord Of The Thighs" and "Train Kept A Rollin'" from this show are on all one the official "Classics Live" disc, however rumor has it, and comparisons prove it to be true, the versions on "Classics Live" have been edited and touched up by Jimmy Crespo. The final guitar solo on "Train Kept A Rollin'" is completely missing on "Classics Live." It's also interesting to hear Steven shout "Mr. Dufay!" instead of "Mr. Whitford!" at the beginning of "Lord Of The Thighs." This is completely missing on the Classics Live version as well. This disc also features a rare live version of "No More No More."

Disc 5: Very good stereo from this show on New Year's Eve during the "Back In The Saddle Tour." "Let The Music Do The Talking" and "Red House" are both huge highlights of this disc for me. I attended this tour in Philadelphia and saw Aerosmith perform excellent renditions of both and I have been searching for a cd copy ever since. Of course "Let The Music Do The Talking," a song from the Joe Perry Project's album of the same name, ended up on "Done With Mirrors" a few months later albeit with new lyrics by Steven. This particular version still has Steven singing the original Perry Project lyrics. The last 5 tracks come from an unplugged acoustic session in Madrid, Spain and features songs that are not included on the end of the "Woodstock '94" disc. These five acoustic tracks were originally released as a Geffen promo cd called "Basico" (GEFD24555). It was released in Spain together with the very first edition of "Big Ones." The tracks were recorded at an acoustic show at 'Cadena 40 Principales' studios in Madrid, Spain on June 9th, 1994. 'Basico' is the Spanish word for 'Basic,' but is also used in Spain as the word for 'Unplugged'.

Disc 6: Excellent stereo sound that sounds like it probably came from a Swedish radio broadcast. As usual with most of Aerosmith's 90's material, the band is tight and put on a spectacular show. Smokin' version of "Flesh" and "Sweet Emotion" complete with an opening bass solo, and excerpts from Led Zeppelin's "Dazed & Confused" and the Peter Gunn Theme. Excellent version of "Walk This Way" as well, but unfortunately the Swedish radio announcer ruins the end of the song by talking over it. Of the six discs this one has the best stereo sound.

16. "Train Kept a Rollin'/Batman/Peter Gunn Theme" (7:19)
17. "S.O.S. (Too Bad)" (2:17)

Seventeen killer soundboard tracks. This one sounds as good as "Live Bootleg" and includes some incredible material including "Milk Cow Blues," which also features guest lead guitarist Ted Nugent. One thing about 'ol Ted is you can definetely pick out his guitar sound and his solo style. Funny, however, Steven Tyler introduces Brad Whitford instead of Ted. Anyhow, this original disc also contains three bonus tracks that were not included on the "official" video release of "Texas Jam." Picked this one up on eBay for $20.

16. "Toys in the Attic" (4:59)
17. "Milk Cow Blues" (5:47)
18. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (1:52)

Excellent show from a vintage era of Aerosmith. This particular show was a radio broadcast but does not have a high quality sound. (Rated a B at best.) It's not unlistenable but it takes a song or two to get use to the muddy mix. Tyler's vocals standout as does Brad Whitford's guitar, but Joe Perry's guitar is far out of the mix, which unfortunately leaves many of the leads out. Still, it's Tyler's charisma, and the band's overall live energy that carries the show. Surprisingly, the music is tight for a band that was at the height of the excesses of drug and alcohol abuse. There are a few drop outs here and there, which makes me think the original source of this disc was a crappy tape. Two songs, "Same old Song & Dance" and "Train Kept A Rollin'" have been cut, although the bass solo is in tact for the mid-section of "Same Old Song & Dance." I picked up this particular disc at a cd show. The cover is printed with black ink on yellow stock and takes symbols from "Permanent Vacation," an album that came out some ten years after this was recorded. This same show also appears on "Kings Chronicle" (disc one), only with a better recording and without the edits.

15. "Jailbait" (demo) (4:35)

Excellent show from the "Done With Mirrors" tour recorded live at the Centrum. The concert was a Westwood One FM broadcast so the sound quality is superb stereo. "Let The Music Do The Talking" from this show is the one on the Classics Live II! album. "She's On Fire," "The Hop," and "My Fist Your Face" were also released on the B-side of the "Darkness" 12 inch single. (U.S. Geffen 20801-0 A) Nice bonus with the addition of three demo songs from the "Rock in a Hard Place" pre-production sessions. These three tracks are all of excellent sound quality and were recorded at Criteria Studios, Miami in Sept '82 with Jimmy Crespo on guitar. My copy of this disc is a cdr with nice laser print cover art, but I believe there are mass produced "silver" copies availabel on Bondage Music (BON 026). Perhaps someday I will find an original.

The booklet details disc one as Boston, April 1990. It is in fact The Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA, January 19, 1990. Disc 2, says June 1975, but is Shaeffer Music Festival, Central Park NY, August 29, 1975. Disc one is recorded in excellent stero sound. Disc 1 is a complete Philadelphia concert, one month into the USA Pump Tour, taken from West wood One "Superstar Concert Series" broadcast May 1990 on WMMR. Disc 2 is the 10 songs complete version of Central Park 1975 concert taken from King Biscuit Flour Hour FM Broadcast. (This track order is from the January 1991 re-broadcast). It has an excellent raw sound with numbers from "Toys in the Attic" which had just been released in the US. Their new single, Walk This Way had just been released in the USA the day before this show. This disc has been released as a "silver" mass produced disc but unfortunately cdr copies are being sold on eBay.

Man, I've been wanting this cd for years. I've never seen it in any of the stores I know that carry this kind of disc, and I must have bid twenty times for it on eBay. Someone was always willing to pay more than me. One time I even bid up to $60 for a silver cd version. I finally secured this copy from an eBay seller for $15 off of eBay. The disc sounds as good as any silver cd and comes with art for the front and back of the disc, so I am satisfied for know. (Although, knowing me, I'd probably still buy the silver cd version if I came across it.) Anyhow, this spectacular acoustic disc was recorded live for MTV Unplugged at Ed Sullivan Studios, August 11, 1990. Several of these songs are covers. There are the usual Aerosmith covers, that most people assume are Aersmith songs like "Big 10 Inch Record," "Milkcow Blues," abd "Walkin' the Dog." Two rarities make their way on this performance as well with "Love Me Two Times" a Doors cover and "Smokestack Lightning" which I believe is a Yardbirds cover.

13. "Train Kept a Rollin'" (Part 2) (3:09)
14. "Last Child" (4:47)

Essentially the same as the above cd, only with slightly altered track order and times. I think the overall sound quality is better on this disc too. Originally this disc was released as a silver bootleg by Bondage Music, the same company that made the excellent "King's Chronicle."

10. "Walking the Dog" (3:46)
11. "Jaded"
12. "Amazing"

Basically a compilation of songs from two different acoustic sets. Tracks 1-5 were recorded live at 40 Principale Studios, Madrid, Spain, June 9, 1994. Tracks 6-10 were recorded live at MTV Unplugged at Ed Sullivan Studios, August 11, 1990. The bonus tracks are all acoustic mix b-sides taken off of various singles. Sound quality of this disc is good overall, but the last three tracks are a bit louder on the disc than the rest of the tracks. All these songs have been released before on various bootlegs but the first five acoustic version are less common than tracks 6-10. Also must add that despite there being a label listed (Run Of The Mill Records), I doubt that this label actually exists or that this disc has been mass produced. Most likely a CDR that is being sold and traded by fans. Sells on eBay for around $20 - $30.

Another Live Bootleg Aerosmith-Another Live Bootleg (P 910113)
Recorded live at The Forest National Theatre, Bruxelles, Belguim 10/31/93

1. "Love In An Elevator" (5:47)
2. "Fever" (4:44)
3. "Cryin'" (5:07)
4. "Shut Up And Dance" (6:42)
5. "Stop Messin' Around" (4:07)
6. "Rag Doll" (4:27)
7. "Janie's Got A Gun" (5:36)
8. "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)" (4:43)
9. "Dream On" (5:00)
10. "Walk This Way" (4:44)
11. "Livin' On The Edge" (5:22)

Despite being sold as live in Boston 1993, this is actually the same show as 'Bruxelles 1993' with a better mastering job and slightly different track listing. "Boogie Man," "Rag Doll" and "Walk This Way" were omitted from the 'Bruxelles 1993' disc below, yet on this disc "Sweet Emotion/Peter Gunn Theme" and "What it Takes" are omitted. My brother of metal in Germany picked up this disc for me. He said he found it for "really cheap." In the U.S., if you could even find this disc, it would sell for a minimum of $25 at a cd show and probably more than that on eBay being that it is an original 'silver' disc, as opposed to a cdr copy.

Bruxells 1993 Aerosmith-Bruxelles 1993 (Live Storm/LSCD 51516)

11. "Eat The Rich" (4:47)
12. "Flesh" (5:00)
13. "Janie’s Got A Gun" (6:10)

An excellent (A+) show recorded in Bruxelles, Belgium during the "Get A Grip" tour. This particular show was broadcast worldwide. The sound quality is excellent throughout up until "Eat the Rich" where the quality drops a bit for some strange reason. I have read that these songs are from a different concert. I saw on another Aero-page that tracks 11-12 were recorded at Biloxi, MS, USA on July 15, 1993. Track 13, I suppose, is of unknown origin. Anyhow, this disc has been mass produced and is was made in Italy.

Excellent recording taken from the FM radio broadcast from Mansfield on August 27th, 1993. (Also released as "Live Fever" but without "Red House.) Track listing based on FM broadcast tracks. Stevie Ray Vaughan blues tribute given since it was exactly 3 years since his death in a helicopter crash on the way to Chicago, IL. "Boogie Man/ Shut Up And Dance" is listed on the insert as "Suaddap and dance." Not sure if this one was ever mass produced but the record company listed is The Last Bootleg Records (LBR 011). Notice the blatent error on the cover art as well with the I in the logo missing.

Woodstock 1994 Aerosmith-Woodstock 1994 (WOOD 99403/04)

9. "Hangman's Jury" (6:02)

11. "Dream On" (4:50)
12. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (3:06)
13. "Walking the Dog" (3:46)

This is a fabulous disc. Not only is the soundboard recording excellent (A+) but the performance is tight and the entire show is included. Every song is outstanding and full of energy, despite the fact that Aerosmith took the stage just before midnight. The bonus tracks are excellent as well. The unplugged songs are as entertaining as the electric songs ever were. Loads of charisma! Aerosmith rule and I can't say enough good things about this disc. Even the pro-printed cover and inserts are stellar. A minor flaw in the track listing. "Hangman's Jury" is listed as "Love Comes Tumbling." Otherwise a near perfect cd.

14. "Love in an Elevator" (6:09)
15. "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" (4:37)

Excellent quality FM broadcast of the Woodstock concert.  Basically the same concert as "Woodstock 1994" with a different cover and possibly better mastering. The cover art on this disc is very cool. It's one of those 3-D pieces that you have to stare at until your vision gets blurry and eventually the image pops in. The hidden message is "Woodstock 94" Excellent German import. Couldn't ask for a nicer Christmas present. "Stop Messin' Around" is listed as "Stop Messin'".

13. "Mama Kin" (3:44)
14. "Janie's Got A Gun" (5:29)

German import and an excellent compilation of stereo live tracks. Unfortunately the liner notes only say "Recorded Live in the USA 1993/1994, so I have no idea where these tracks were recorded, other than the three acoustic tracks which are from MTV Unplugged recorded at Ed Sullivan Studio¹s, August 11, 1990. As on several other bootlegs, "Hangman's Jury" is listed "Love Comes Tumbling Down." Also the liner notes incorrectly list the writers of the songs. They have the three covers "Big Ten Inch Record," "'Train Kept A Rollin'"² and "Walkin' The Dog" listed as being written by Aerosmith, yet they have two originals "Rag Doll" and "Fever" written by someone else.

12. "Walk this Way" (5:56)
13. "Mama Kin" (3:56)
14. "Milk Cow Blues" (4:37)

This is a killer show, featuring mostly older material from an FM broadcast. This infamous Aerosmith concert was the last at the end of their 18 month "Get A Grip" tour. Aerosmith are always at their best when they are live and can jam. I use to own a ton of Aero-bootleg tapes, and the best shows were the ones that featured the extended guitar jams. This one features a phenomenal rendition of Fleetwood Mac's "Rattlesnake Shake," which was also the name of a very popular vinyl bootleg by Aerosmith in the 70's. Also features a never before recorded Christmas version of "Stop Messin' Around" with Joe Perry singing lead vocals. This is a great set and worth every penny of the $15 I paid for it.

Well now I have two different versions of this show, each with a slightly different track listing. One show has no breaks in between songs, while the other does. However, the one without the breaks has some static in the recording, whereas the one with the breaks is clean.

Manikato Live Aerosmith-Mankato Live (ABS)
Recorded Live in Mankato, MN, November, 7 1998

1. "Pink" (4:41)
2. "Draw the Line" (6:20)
3. "Stop Messin' Around" (5:41)
4. "Mother Popcorn/Walk This Way" (6:52)
5. "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" (4:31)
6. "Cryin'" (5:25)
7. "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" (8:20)
8. "Mama Kin/What It Takes" (9:40)
9. "Sweet Emotion" (5:56)
10. "Heartbreaker/Sweet Emotion" (5:17)

"Mankato Live" is a mass produced cd that sports very good audience recorded sound (A/A-) and excellent full color inserts. AMG has the date for this show listed as November 7, 1998 although no information is actually given on the disc or inserts. Of course, AMG also has this disc listed as a two disc set, when in reality it's only a single disc. Killer performance by the Aeroboys. Great rendition of "Stop Messin' Around" with Joe Perry singing and Mr. Tyler rocking the harp. One annoyance is that "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)" features about three full minutes of crowd noise at the end of the song. Otherwise a great disc and a worthwhile addition to my Aerosmith collection. "Heartbreaker" is a Led Zeppelin cover.

14. "Mother Popcorn/Walk This Way/
Don't Want to Miss A Thing/Cryin'" (18:37)
15. "Don't Want to Miss A Thing" (4:53)
16. "Cryin'" (4:59)
17. "Dude Looks Like A Lady" (4:35)
18. "Chip Away At the Stone" (4:34)
19. "Mama Kin" (4:04)
20. "Train Kept A Rollin'" (2:23)
21. "New Year Countdown" (3:20)
22. "Full Circle" (7:15)
23. "Happy Birthday/Sweet Emotion" (4:24)
24. "Heartbreaker" (5:17)

This two disc set was a bit of a disappointment for me as I was led to believe it was a "real" cd, as opposed to a cdr with a color printout cover. Unfortunately, that is what it is. If a mass produced cd exists of this show, I have yet to see one. The music on the other hand is outstanding. The sound quality is excellent (A+) being taken directly from the soundboard from this special holiday concert. I've heard officially released albums that don't sound this good. The show is pretty much uninterrupted with the exception of some of the crowd noise being cut from between "Dream On" and "Janie's Got A Gun." "Train Kept A Rollin'" is also interrupted but only because the band stopped for the New Year countdown. Tyler offers up a "new age prayer" to the "one god of all religions" during the festivities with a Japanese interpreter echoing his words. Nice to hear "Let the Music Do the Talking." I can't remember them performing this song on the "Nine Lives" tour, but I am sure glad they have resurrected this great song. (Wouldn't mind hearing "Darkness" again in concert as well.) There are two stellar medleys on this disc as well, Sweet Emotion with Led Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker" and "Walk this Way" with James Brown's "Mother Popcorn." "Mother Popcorn" is not listed on the track listing. Of course what Aerosmith New Years Eve concert would be complete without Tyler and the crowd singing "Happy Birthday" to Tom Hamilton. This was Tom Hamilton's 48th birthday. As usual with bootlegs, there is usually something wrong with the track listing and "New Years Eve 1999" is no exception. Disc two/track one, which is suppose to only be "Mother Popcorn/Walk This Way," also has the next two songs tacked onto the same track. Track two and three are correctly listed but are repeats of the songs that were incorrectly tacked onto track one. Also "Full Circle" is incorrectly listed as "Time" on the back cover. Also, the cover has the show listed at Yokohama Arena, but was actually performed at the Osaka Dome in Osaka, Japan. Of course, had the bootlegger listened to the disc, he would have heard this as Tyler echoes the words "Osaka" repeatedly, several times throughout the show.

18. "Last Child" (alternate mix) (3:53)

I already possess a majority of these songs on the various singles and soundtracks that are pictured on the cd cover. However, it's really nice to have all these songs on one cd. There is actually another compilation similar to this one floating around called "Demos and Live Rarities" that contains 17 different songs than this collection. In any case, "Won't Let You Down" is the bonus track from the Japanese pressing of "Just Push Play." "Angel's Eyes" is from the Charlie's Angels Soundtrack. "What Kind of Love are You On" and "Don't Want to Miss a Thing" are both from the Armageddon soundtrack. "Come Together" is a song recorded by the evil Future Villan Band from the Sgt. Pepper Soundtrack. "Living On The Edge" (demo) is a b-side from the "Get A Grip" pre-release EP as are "Don't Stop" and "Can't Stop Messin'". I should mention that this demo version is very different than the final version that appeared on "Get A Grip." "Fall Together" is from the "Falling in Love (is Hard on the Knees)" pre-release single for "Nine Lives." All three of these "unreleased" tracks are excellent heavy rockers. "Dueces Are Wild" is from the Beavis and Butthead Experience soundtrack. "Sweet Emotion" is the 1991 remix from the promotional video that was released. "Rockin Pheumonia" is from the "Less than Zero" soundtrack, but also appears on the Box of Fire bonus disc, as do "Subway," "Circle Jerk," Both these tracks are instrumental studio jams that were recorded during the "Draw the Line" sessions. Apparently while Steve & Joe were away in la la land somewhere the other three members of the band spent time in the studio jamming. "Dream On" (MTV Anniversary) appears on this bonus disc as well but was first releasd on the Last Action Hero soundtrack. This track was recorded with Michael Kamen and his orchestra. "Helter Skelter," "Big Ten Inch Record" and "Last Child" are all taken from either the Pandora's Box set or the "Big 10" Sampler" as pictured on the cover. The live version of "Big Ten Inch" is taken from the Mama Kin Music Hall show on December 19, 1994 and also appears on the Australian version of "Greatest Hits." Also must mention that despite the fact that both the "Pink" singles and the "Amazing" single are pictured on the cover, nothing from any of these singles appear on this cd.

17. "Walk This Way" w/Kid Rock and Run DMC" (live MTV VMA's 1999) (5:32)

Well looky here, the companion disc to the "Singles & Soundtracks" disc. This one has more rare material and less stuff taken from singles, although some of this stuff was released before. Several of the remix songs, including "Pink," "Taste Of India" (Miami maddness mix), and "Line Up" (Butcher bros. mix) are taken from varous singles. "Deuces Are Wild" I don't even think is Aerosmith playing on, but rather songwriter Jim Vallance with Steven Tyler on vocals and Joe or Brad doing the lead. This is a direct quote sent to me from Jim:
I worked on 4 albums with Aerosmith, plus "Deuces Are Wild", which Steven and I wrote for the Beavis and Butthead soundtrack (I never did see the movie!). I think they were in a hurray to provide something for the film, and they basically used the basement demo of Deuces. I didn't get credit for it, but I am playing all the instruments except the guitar solo in the middle. -Jim Vallance

"The Gap" is bluesy TV commercial that Steven & Joe did for the Gap with Steven playing drums, harp, and singing while Joe strums along on his dobro. "I Love Trash" is from a Sesame Street cd called "Elmopalooza!" I'm pretty sure that only Steven took part in this and not any other Aerosmith member. "Once Is Enough" was originally released on the 12" single from "Dude Looks Like a Lady" and was also released on a Japanese EP called "Vacation Club." This song, along with "Sedona Sunrise" are both country influenced songs. (YIKES!) "Walk This Way" also includes sections of Run DMC's "King of Rock" and although I'm embaressed to admit it, some Kid Rock piece of crap called "Bawitadaba". (GAK!) "Immigrant Song" is, of course, a Led Zeppelin cover.
