Comments :
Aerosmith participated in the moviesoundtrack "ST. PEPPERS LONELY HEARTSCLUB BAND" in 1978 with"COME TOGETHER", but the sound source ofthat recording session was the firstappearance!In their familiar WHEREHOUSE STUDIOSrecording, the second song also featuredthe unreleased song"DOWNTOWN CHARLIE" which will laterbe included in "PANDORA'S BOX".This "DOWNTOWN CHARLIE" is the same take as the one recorded in "PANDORA'S BOX" but the mix is significantly different, and the credits are recorded in "PANDORA'S BOX" in New York the day before, but the exact location and date are Which is correct unknown.In the latter half, the rehearsal sound source at the Boston Music Hall was recorded on March 27 of the same year, but this was performedfor the live performed on the same day on the 28th and 29th the following day.Both are recorded with the perfect sound board sound source comparable to the official, and it is a startling item that recorded the studio session sound source of the 70's which was never before!

Comments :
Soundboard recording
A collection of rarities and alternativeversions resulting from the recording
sessions of the album Rock in a HardPlace (1982). We can find devilish
instrumental versions of the songs thatwere included on the album, as Steven
Tyler was in a terrible state due to hisdrug addiction and was rarely seen in
the studio. In other shots you can alreadyhear the song more similar to the one
included on the album and even with thedecent participation of Tyler, but in others
we can hear it with the voice a little spoiled,babbling some lyrics or melodies.
the discovery of these oddities has been veryinteresting, citing for example the braving of"Take It or Leave It #13" (what would be"Bolivian Ragamuffin"), the alternative
instrumental version of "Bitches Brew" and"Gut Bucket Blues".
Out-takes from recording of 'Rock In A Hard Place' in Miami, The absence of Tyler during the some of the period is reflected by the number of tracks which are instrumental versions. A few have Tyler ad-libbing vocals.Gut Bucket Blues (instrumental) and Take It Or Leave It #13 eventually became Bolivian Ragamuffin.The alternate version of Bitches Brew is an instrumental.A version of Riff and Roll turned up on Pandora's Box but recorded at The Power Station, NYC in Sept. 81, a year earlier.
The version of Joanie's Butterfly is an instrumental which is how Crespo intended it`to be until Tyler added lyrics from a dream he had. Jailbait, Cry Me A River and Lightning Strikes are also primitive versions of the final songs.

Comments :
Excellent demos and outtakes from the "Permanent Vacation" era. The date
detailed in the second setlist (spring 1986)is questioned, as Aerosmith was touring
 "Done With Mirrors" from January toAugust 1986, and especially since the
release of DWM was not made untilNovember of '85. These tracks are
definitely after the first session in February 1987 and the period issupposed to be that of spring 1987, as "Permanent Vacation" was released in the summer of 1987. Apparently there were six tracks in the "Rick Rubin" demos that also included Hollywood. "Hangman Jury" is not on the cd. The cd features "Rick Rubin" as "Rick Robin". "Love Me Like A Bird Dog" seems to be the precursor to "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)".

Fairly clear, but hardly perfect
recording from the band's
"Back in The Saddle" tour. There
are a few cuts, but the recording
is mostly intact. It aapears as
 "Train Kept A Rollin'" was not
 taped. The next night Tyler would
fall of the stage and the band would
beat him up, or so the legend goes.
Things seem mostly OK on this night,
although the band starts in on
"Three Mile Smile," cutting off Tyler's
ramblings about it being the band's first political song.
