Live! Bootleg by Aerosmith
Released: Oct 1978
Label: Columbia
This 1978 live offering finds America's greatest rock band just before they began to fall apart, nevertheless positively cranking through a list that may as well be a collection of greatest hits and badass covers. While the rhythm section is perfectly loosey-goosey and Steven Tyler sure knows how to scream, Joe Perry's truly nasty guitar playing is the main attraction, from the opening riff that "Back in the Saddle" hurtles past to the definitive version of "Train Kept a Rollin'." Their crashing take on The Beatles' "Come Together" was equally revelatory in '78.
