Product Description

While not quite as exemplary of the Boston quintet's '70s sound as Toys in the Attic or Rocks, Get Your Wings was impressive both in terms of its material and its measurable improvement over Aerosmith's debut. From the R&B inflected "Same Old Song and Dance" to the power-rock "Woman of the World" to the rollicking cover of "Train Kept a Rollin'," Wings showed the band solidifying their sound and really taking flight for the first time. --Genevieve Williams

"Get your wings", 100 percent Aerosmith. The album presents a more defined style, showing clear tendencies towards hard rock, but with noticeable shades of blues. Just as with the "Aerosmith" album, we continue to hear melodies and lyrics that could make even a rock dance, or get a smile from the bitterest person. "Get your wings", in particular, travels across varied tempos in an intermingled way: it begins with "Same old song and dance", which has an agile (not fast) and harmonious rhythm, and then we move to "Lord of the thighs" and "Spaced", which show themselves serious and at a leisurely pace. Next, the freshness of "Woman of the world" appears, followed by the heaviest track on the disc in terms of the mixture of music and lyrics: "S.O.S. (too bad)". After this, "Train kept a rollin'", originally written by Tiny Bradshaw, Howard Kay y Lois Mann, takes us again to an agile and catchy rhythm. Without losing the thread, like the seashore at sunrise, "Seasons of wither" brings calm. Finally, going back to a heavier sound, "Pandora's box" closes the album.

In relation to the lyrics, it's not necessary to repeat that Steven Tyler and company keep the double entendre and cleverness when writing: a trademark of Aerosmith. However, this time the subjects are a lot darker in comparison to the first album lyrics. You can also notice a change in the vocal timbre of Tyler: in "Get your wings", his sound adopts increased agility and ease, qualities that would be developing across Aerosmith's following works. Lastly, it's important to mention that you can sense a deep musical rapport between the members of the band.

"Get Your Wings" is actually a good record. That is, if you were a fan of circa-1973 Alice Cooper's sound. Like the NY Dolls, in 1974 Aerosmith tried and failed to get Cooper-protege Bob Ezrin to produce their upcoming album. To get a sense of how much of an influence ACG was, you need to look no further than the lead tracks from both albums ("Mama Kin" & "Personality Crisis"). Both were blatant rewrites of Cooper's "Cross-Town Traffic" inspired SMOKER - "Under My Wheels".
When Ezrin wasn't impressed with either band, he sent his protege Jack Douglas to work on the Aerosmith project. After experiencing problems with the quality of Aerosmith's guitar playing in the studio, Douglas was forced to "ghost" Aerosmith with the same studio band that he (and Ezrin before him) had used on ACG's 1973 Top 10 album "Muscle of Love".
Interestingly, Douglas trashes ACG's playing - while failing to mention that the same musicians were used on "Get Your Wings".
Joe Perry was considered a guitar "god" in the 70's, primarily due to his simulated "live" version of "Train Kept A Rollin". Unfortunately - he wasn't on the track!! Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter of Alice Cooper's studio-band, provided nearly all of the guitar work on GYW(as they later did for Kiss, Pink Floyd's "The Wall", Patti Smith Group, etc.,). Compare the sound of "Same Old Song and Dance" to the earlier Cooper work "Never Been Sold Before". Compare "Hard Hearted Alice" to "Seasons of Wither". The list goes on.
It wasn't until Perry played on Cooper's song "Trash" that the debt was repaid. Somewhat. A Florida music critic (forget the name - but can be googled) recently wrote a great piece that traced Cooper's early influence on Aerosmith.
The idea that Aerosmith, NY Dolls and the Sex Pistols can be in the Rock & Roll HOF before their PRIMARY INFLUENCE (ACG) is more insane than any Alice character. Apart from Roky Erikson - nobody is more deserving.

Aerosmith's 1973's self-titled debut was a great raw album that saw a young band on its way to make it big and become America's biggest Rock'N'Roll band. It's a little different because Steven doesn't sing the same way and there's just a different approach and feeling to the band's first album, in a way that's all part of its charm. To me the follow up Get Your Wing (1974) is when Aerosmith really became Aerosmith: the dirty blues riffs, Steven's voice sounds more like usually does and the rhythm section seem to have figured it all out. It's an improvement over the first album which I like very much make no mistake, I just think Get our Wings is an overall stronger album. Aerosmith went from being this great little band with a lot of potential that were dismissed as a Rolling Stones rip-off to being America's biggest rock'n'roll band in matter of a few years and Get Your Wings showed great progression although they wouldn't make it until it's follow up, Toys In The Attic.

'Same Old Song And Dance' remains one of my favorite Aerosmith song, talk about a dirty bluesy riff! From the beginning the song just grabs you instantly. 'Lord Of The Tights' is a slower paced song but probably more epic, it's got great playing and it's one of the most underrated Aerosmith songs in my opinion, a gem. 'Spaced' is another great song it sounds spaced alright, it has a great vibe and I'll agree with the other reviewers who raved about this song . The band's cover of 'Train Kept A Rollin'' is I think well known enough that nothing needs to be said about this one. I love the live feel and it's an excellent cover version of the Yardbirds original, the band really makes it their own a highlight of Get Your Wings for sure.
