Aerosmith's Joe Perry is opening up about the legendary band’s new 51-year old live archival release, The Road Starts Hear.
Joe said, "Sometimes I wish we sounded this good now. So, I think this is a really good representation of what the band sounded [like] and frankly, I'm really surprised it sounded as good as it does because there were no overdubs, no mixing, nothing."
The iconic album was recorded in 1971 in either the band’s Boston rehearsal room or at a soundcheck. The releases contains seven songs, including five that eventually made it onto their self-titled debut album back in 1973 -- "Walkin’ the Dog," "Movin’ Out," "Dream On," "Somebody" and "Mama Kin."
The other two songs are “Reefer Head Woman,” which was recorded for their 1979 album Night in the Ruts, and “Major Barbara,” which was featured on Classics Live in 1986.
The packaging for the archival release includes archival photos, images of the original tape box, along with liner notes, new interviews and comments from the band. The tape apparently came from Steven Tyler's roommate at that time. The release marks the beginning of the band's 50th anniversary.
