3.0 out of 5 stars Not for casual listeners but maybe a treat for Aeroheads, 30 Jan 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Baying At The Moon (Audio CD)
I had a copy of this on tape from my tape trading days (late 70's to mid 80's), in fact I'm sure I still have it but can't seem to put my hands on it...probably somewhere in the loft away from where I was looking, anyway it's one of the reasons I bought it. Now this is a whole kettle of fish for someone who may be used to the polished Aerosmith sound of the last couple of decades. This is 70's Aerosmith and a radio broadcast to boot and as it stands is pretty much a period piece - so if you're expecting a highly polished amazing sounding recording then best look elsewhere.
The recording quality itself doesn't differ so much from the tape I have which I believe is a 1st generation copy, I would say it's a bit cleaner and I would have expected that but seriously it's not some highly polished live affair. What it is though is a pretty cool and raw performance of the band at the peak of their powers on the precipice looking down into the abyss which accommodated their well documented fall from grace, albeit temporary. I've already played it through a couple of times and honestly find it hard to switch off ... I listen and have a big grin on my face, this rawness was/is the reason I dig Aerosmith and for me it's the business.
So a raw gripping performance, warts n all....very good quality recording I'd say if I was still trading tapes. I'll give it 3 stars mainly because it's definitely not something I'd recommend to someone new to Aerosmith or the uninitiated but could be a nice surprise for more "seasoned" Aeroheads, for them I'd say 4 stars.
