Comments :
Excellent show from a vintage era of
AerosmithThis particular show was
originally a radio broadcast but does
not have a high quality sound.
It's not unlistenablebut 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.
