9. No More, No More
10. Same Old Song And Dance
11. Train Kept A-Rollin'

Recorded:
Kiel Auditorium, St. Louis, MO, 18 Sep 1975

Comments:
Excellent Soundboard. Can't be totally 1974
with tracks from Toys In The Attic. Possibly a
selection of tracks from 1974 and
the Central Park, August, 1975 concert as very
few recordings with No More No More on. It is
assumed Schoolboy is S.O.S. (Too Bad) as
similar mistake on "Live in 1978"

Before No more no more, Steven talks about
Patti Hearst, who has just been arrested in
San Fransisco. This confirms the date as
September 18th, 1975.
The beginning of Walkin' the dog has been
cut from the recording.
Train kept a rollin' is 17 mn long, and contains
a typical example of Joey's boring drum-solo
(sorry Joey :), but also the Batman theme, the
Peter Gunn theme, and bits of Pandora's box,
Movin' out and Think about it !

Audience Recording.
Ah the good old days when they were dirty. Old Aero fans would crap there pants if they whipped out this setlist today. But those days are gone. Here we have old Aero on the second leg of their "Back In the Saddle" tour playing in Corpus Christi. Nice, focused show, and some nice version of "Adam's Apple"  a semi-rarity.  Tyler tinkers with what would become "Darkness" before launching into "Dream On." This is straight from the master.

Good audience recording
First rest of the tour for "The Other Side" (11 songs now ever present in the set to date, this tour).
Return of "Never Loved A Girl" (which came and went on the previous tour) after 8 shows and brings the number of tunes from current album up to 6 (half the album) and most in the set so far this tour.
First tour play of "S.O.S. (Too Bad)" which was last played on November 8, 2003 and only featured 3 times in the last 4 tours (including this one).
Return of "Mother Popcorn" played in full prior to"Walk This Way" (played last Dec 21, 2002) and 21 numbers is a new maximum for the tour to date.
Small snippet of "You Gotta Move" played before "Shame Shame Shame"

Recorded at:
May 27th 1997
Ahoy' Hall
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Comments:
This was the very first Aerosmith concert that I attended back in 1997 and I can tell you it was a blast. The Bad Boys from Boston are really playing their asses of. The setlist is very balanced and nice. Rare appareance of 'Falling Off', a Nine Lives non album track with Joe Perry on lead vocals. Great swinging versions of Mama Kin and Dude (Looks Like A Lady).

I remember also a guy jumping on stage and shortly dancing with Steven Tyler during Monkey On My Back but was literally thrown off the stage by security within 10 seconds. You can hear the audience cheering in the middle of Monkey On My Back. Nice memories:)

Umfortunately, the first part of Nine Lives is cut, just as the first part of Mama Kin. SStill very enjoyable show.

Comments:
Awesome sound quality audience recording of the complete January 4th 2000 Fukuoka Dome, Japan concert
Surprise insertion of S.O.S as a medley in Sweet Emotion. Joe performed a dual slot of "Red House" and "Stop Messin' Around" which believe has only ever happened before (with these numbers) during their Yokohama gigs in March 1998.
First play on tour from the Rocks album which is a surprise.

ONE WAY STREET (detroit 1974)



















Format: CD, 12 tracks, 75 min 50 sec
Label: GREAT DANE RECORDS GDR CD 9025, 1991

Disc:
1. Write Me A Letter
2. Mama Kin
3. Lord Of The Thighs
4. Woman Of The World
5. Dream On
6. Pandora's Box
7. Same Old Song And Dance

10. Train Kept A Rollin'

12. Milk Cow Blues

Recorded at:
Details as being Masonics Hall, Detroit on April
4, 1974 but is Michigan Palace, Detroit
Michigan, April 14, 1974

Comments:
Excellent mono and seems slightly better
sound than Erotic Dreams, with the band
expressing their raw energy into their new
release, Get Your Wings. This recording also
carries Joe singing Milk Cow Blues, which
Aerosmith would eventually record some 3
years later on Draw The Line.




PANDORA'S STUDIO (cincinati 1973)



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Format: CD, 10 tracks, ~55 min
Label: Lost And Found 093

Set list
1. Make it
2. Somebody
3. Write Me
4. Dream On
5. One Way Street
6. Walkin' the Dog
7. Pandora's Box
8. Rattlesnake Shake
9. Train Kept a Rollin'
10. Mama Kin 

Recorded at:
Music Hall, Cincinnati, OH 10/10/73
Counterpart Studios, New York, 1974

Comments:
Very good stereo. The recording questions
information detailed in the Pandora's Box
booklet, which carries Walkin' The Dog and
Rattlesnake Shake from this set, and says it is
from 1971. It also details that it was
broadcast live by WKRQ, Cincinnati and
produced by Aerosmith.. The recording is
probably late '73 as it carries Pandora's Box
which wasn't recorded in the studio until
December 1973/January 1974. It does bring
into question whether this is recorded in
studios at New York given there is an audience.
Some reports quote it being done in Ohio,
probably Cincinnati. Tyler also says on
introducing Pandora's Box, "we'd like to play a boogie from our new album, entitled, Night in the Ruts" which was the title Get Your Wings initially went under. This version of the song carries different lyrics.
Rare live version of Fleetwood Mac's 'Rattlesnake Shake', a forerunner of 'Rats in the Cellar'.
Reissued as 'Rattlesnake Shake' LXXXIV No 18; on violet vinyl with approximately 100 numbered copies. To confuse issues further, the Ruthless Rhymes release seems to originate from Germany and carries the date (P) 1971 which is hard to swallow since the session comprises of all the Aerosmith LP's tracks apart from Movin' Out and this was the first track the band apparently wrote.
