I think what draws me to this earlier Aerosmith music is the guitar mix, Steven Tyler's vocals in the earlier years, and the high energy rock 'n' roll performances they put on. I don't know their drug intake at this stage, but it was definitely before the point where it became such an issue they started sounding sloppy. They really got sloppy and lost it in the late 1970's and into the 1980's. Sure, they still made some great music and played some great shows. But they also had some horrible music, by my tastes as wellas the music industry's too (just look at their sales), as well as some catostraphic performances the more they got caught up in the drugs and the toll it took on the band members. The one good thing is this. Even if I hated the music they made later (for the most part...not all of it), at least they got their act together and got clean over time. And they became successful again and for a totally younger generation. As far as I know, they've had a few pitfalls since then but have pretty much kept their noses clean too.
I don't really keep up with Aerosmith a lot and I don't collect any of their newer shows. My limited information of their history comes from reading, research, and TV documentaries and stories over the years. But they all seem to be pretty consistent in their reports and the band seems to agree with what is said too from what I've seen and heard.
There are some changes as this recording progresses. I'm trying to listen to it as I make this post. It sounds as if the mix on the soundboard is fooled with, at times highlighting Tyler's voice and then at other times switching more towards Perry's guitar. But it equaly out as far as I can tell after a little time and still sounds excellent overall. I'm listening to "Dream On" right now, after Tyler's early misplaced lyrical jumping in on "Sweet Emotion" (kind of funny hearing it), and the mix sounds excellent. But the nore I listen, the guitar drops out a little more near the end. But you can actually hear the lyrics cleaner in this song too with the mix.
The recording is not without errors, both by the band and the sound mixer, but it a still a nice, old era show Aerosmith fans should enjoy it!
I hope you enjoy the show...
