Liner Notes

  • This is Volume VI in the listener series.The co-host today is Joe Becht from Chicago and the topic is Aerosmith.
  • Joe believes the first four Aerosmith albums are the best rock 'n roll ever made.
  • Joe has see Aerosmith 22 times and the first tour he saw was Night In The Ruts. Pat has seen them 3 times. Kyle saw them in Pittsburgh in 2004 with his mom. He was only 15 at the time.
  • Aerosmith's first album, Aerosmith, was produced by Adrian Barber. It was a short album with only 8 songs. Looks like the first cover was just thrown together as an after thought.
  • Get Your Wings came out in 1974. There are again 8 songs on this album. Joe Perry gets more co-writing credits on the album.
  • Toys In The Attic went up to number 11 on the album charts and this is their biggest studio album in terms of sales with 8 million copies sold.Jack Douglas produced this album.
  • Rocks was released in 1976. On this one everyone switches around to different instruments.
  • Pat believes you can pick any song of the first four albums and he would like it. He also feels the same way about Cheap Trick. After the first four albums though for Aerosmith things start to get dicey.
  • Bose the engineers of some of the world's best audio equipment, including the Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise Canceling Headphones. Everyone in studio is wearing them.Bose invented the technology in noise cancelling headphones 40 years ago. Bose believes in blocking out sounds and distractions so you can immerse yourself in what you truly love! Bose - Get Closer.
  • Moving on to 1977 and Draw The Line was produced by Aerosmith and Jack Douglas. This is the album that the classic Aerosmith logo that everyone knows first appears. This is also the album where the drugs and alcohol start to catch up with them.
  • Night In The Ruts came out in 1979. On this one it seemed like they were back in form.
  • During the Night In The Ruts tour the "Spilled Milk" incident happened between the wives. Melissa Perry threw milk on Tom Hamilton's wife after a show in Cleveland and Joe left the band. In the meantime, Joe Perry released a solo album called Let The Music Do The Talking under the name The Joe Perry Project.
  • Also during this time Steven Tyler falls further into drug abuse and gets in a motorcycle accident.
  • After a four year hiatus, they come out with Rock In A Hard Place in 1982. This is a great album.
  • In 1984, Brad Whitford and Joe Perry rejoin the band for the Back In The Saddle Tour. The New Year's Eve show at the Orpheum Theater in Boston is one of the greatest performances they ever had. The next album, Done With Mirrors isn't really that good.
  • Two years later and drug-free, Bruce Fairbairn comes in as the producer. They record a version of Walk This Way with Run-D.M.C. that puts Aerosmith back on the map. Permanent Vacation is their comeback album. It seemed great at the time but it doesn't hold up.
  • On Pump, they took what they wanted to do on Permanent Vacation but this time they pulled it off. This is a great album.
  • Get A Grip is a huge album for them with Grammy And American Music Awards. But Pat feels that on this album that they got nerveous about wether they could top the success of Pump. They had tons of co-writers on this album and many of the songs are junk because of it.
  • Nine Lives is a rough and just a big bag o' suck.
  • Aerosmith sings on the Armageddon soundtrack. Steven's daughter Liv was in the movie.
  • Honkin' On Bobo is a cover album.
  • Eight years after Honkin' On Bobo, they come out with Music From Another Dimension! It was a huge disappointment. It's just horrible and Pat would even say it is unlistenable.
  • Joe is on Twitter as @joebecht. Also visit Talking Metal website to read articles he posts.

  • Pat first heard Genesis when his older brother (Kyle's dad) brought home the 45 of Follow You Follow Me in 1978. Pat didn't really listen to any of the older prog rock genesis until about two years ago. turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
  • Murray didn't get into Genesis until Invisible Touch. His girlfriend, at the time, went with him to see Genesis at Giant's Stadium. After the concert he started to explore their back catalogue.
  • Genesis first album, From Genesis To Revelation, only sold 600 copies when it was first released. The original lineup was Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips, Mike Rutherford, and John Silver on drums.
